For the last month, Muse has been hyping up their upcoming 7th studio album, Drones. Now we get to hear the first full track from the record: “Psycho” is as heavy as they promised, and a throwback to their older style. This is a song that would have been at home on Showbiz, Origin Of Symmetry, or Absolution. “Psycho” is the perfect first song to hear from Muse’s Drones, and it comes with a well-done lyric video featuring the band and an intimidating drill sergeant:
“Psycho” is heavy thanks to their low tuning, and has a slightly bluesy sound. Combine that with Matt Bellamy’s signature political lyrics and you have the perfect Muse song. It represents a welcome return to Muse’s earlier musical style, and it will be interesting to see if that carries throughout the whole album.
Although “Psycho” is our first taste of Drones, “Dead Inside” will be the first official single. It will be released later this month, so stay tuned!
You can go to Muse’s official site to pre-order Drones on CD, CD+DVD, 12” double gatefold 180g vinyl, deluxe box set or as a digital download. Drones will be released on June 8th in the UK, and June 9th in the United States.
