Muse has a clear cut message with their new album arriving on August 26th and they don’t care who is offended by it.
“Will of The People” is the third song from their forthcoming album of the same name. Earlier in the year the band released “Compliance” and “Won’t Stand Down,” both racking up critical acclaim and the latter described by NME as “an utterly classic tune. “Will of the People” is produced by Muse and mixed by Serban Ghenea and is an electric anthem that showcases the band’s prowess for storytelling and sonic-scene-creation.
As for the song itself, it’s easily the catchiest track fans have heard so far, with a Marilyn Manson “Beautiful People” / The Timelords “Doctorin’ Tardis” shuffle with a vocal delivery in the vein of Eddie Cochran’s “Summertime Blues.”
Of the song, singer Matt Bellamy states, “’Will of the People’ is fictional story set in a fictional metaverse on a fictional planet ruled by a fictional authoritarian state run by a fictional algorithm manifested by a fictional data centre running a fictional bank printing a fictional currency controlling a fictional population occupying a fictional city containing a fictional apartment where a fictional man woke up one day and thought ‘fuck this.'” So, to be clear, it’s fictional.
