MUSE – ” Compliance “

Posted: March 17, 2022 in MUSIC

Muse have announced their new album “Will of the People”. It’s out August 26th via Warner Bros Records. The new single “Compliance” arrives today with a new video directed by Jeremi Durand. It was shot in Poland and inspired by the movie Looper.

“Will of the People was recorded in Los Angeles and London and is influenced by the increasing uncertainty and instability in the world,” Matt Bellamy said in a statement. “A pandemic, new wars in Europe, massive protests & riots, an attempted insurrection, Western democracy wavering, rising authoritarianism, wildfires and natural disasters and the destabilization of the global order all informed “Will of the People“. It has been a worrying and scary time for all of us as the Western empire and the natural world, which have cradled us for so long, are genuinely threatened. This album is a personal navigation through those fears and preparation for what comes next.”

“Compliance is about the promise of safety and reassurance sold to us by powerful entities during times of vulnerability. Gangs, governments, demagogues, social media algorithms & religions seduce us with misleading untruths and comforting fables. They want us to join their narrow worldview in exchange for obedience and turning a blind eye to our own internal voice of reason & compassion. They just need our Compliance.” (Matt)

Will of the People” is Muse’s follow-up to 2018’s “Simulation Theory“. The new album released 26th August 2022
