Muse have shared the first new track from their forthcoming album.
“Psycho” is lifted from parent LP Drones, scheduled for release on the 8th of June.
The track suggests that the band have very much returned to their heavy rocking ways, something frontman Matt Bellamy hinted at last year: “”We focused on things like synthesisers, drum machines and stuff. On this next album, we’re going to veer back towards musicianship again: guitar, bass and drums. It’s probably going to be a bit of a rawer album, and definitely a bit more rock, I’d say.”
You can watch the video for “Psycho” below:
Drones was produced by Robert John “Mutt” Lang, famed for his work with bands like AC/DC, Def Leppard and Foreigner, and will be preceded by a single, “Dead Inside”, on the 23rd of March.
The full track listing for the album is:
