Muse has a brand new song for its fans.
The band debuted this week, its new single ‘Thought Contagion‘ along with its new companion video. The song — co-produced by Muse and Rich Costey and mixed by Adam Hawkins — is taken from the band’s next, as-yet untitled new LP and comes on the heels of the band’s previous single ‘Dig Down.’ Front man Matt Bellamy said in a recent interview that the song’s message centers on the concept of a person’s thoughts being impacted by the thoughts of others.
“The meaning of the song ‘Thought Contagion’ is about how other people’s thoughts, ideas and beliefs can sometimes infect your mind, get into your head and change the way you think yourself,” Bellamy said.
This concept is illustrated in the song’s companion 80s vampire-themed video, which — directed by Lance Drake (who also directed the ‘Dig Down‘ video) — comes complete with what would seem to be a tribute to Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’ video with its climactic dance number.
The debut of the band’s new single comes only days after the band was awarded the prestigious NME Award for ‘Best Festival Headliner’ after its huge 2017 Reading & Leeds Festival performance. That performance included a performance of AC/DC’s timeless classic ‘Back in Black’ with AC/DC front man Brian Johnson. It is streaming online now here.
