Today Muse released their seventh studio album – Drones – on Warner Bros. Records. The album was co-produced by Muse and Robert John “Mutt” Lange and contains 12 tracks. To purchase the album on iTunes, click HERE. Drones features current single “Dead Inside” which has been at the top of the Mediabase and Billboard Modern Rock Charts for four consecutive weeks and is the trio’s fourth #1 song.
Upon the announcement of the album, Matt Bellamy said, “To me, Drones are metaphorical psychopaths which enable psychopathic behavior with no recourse. The world is run by Drones utilizing Drones to turn us all into Drones. Drones explores the journey of a human, from their abandonment and loss of hope, to their indoctrination by the system to be a human drone, to their eventual defection from their oppressors.”
Additionally, today the band revealed a new music video for the song “Mercy” (watch below).
