iTunes strikes again.
After ruining Florence and the Machine’s new album announcement a few weeks ago, the music store almost did the same to Muse.
The British band have been trying their hardest to keep all information about the new record under lock and key only giving fans the bare information like the album name and a snippet of a new song. Too bad, their hard work was almost foiled by Apple.
According to DIY, some music fans were looking through the Alternative category on iTunes when they stumbled upon the Muse pre-order post. Though the iTunes post doesn’t really give away much information about the album, it does confirm the title, gives the album art, and lets those snooping know that the pre-orders are close to being made live.
Drones marks Muse’s seventh studio album and the follow-up to 2012’s The 2nd Law. Just last week, the band gave fans a tiny snippet of a new song titled “Psycho” directly from the studio. We’re not sure if it will be the lead single or the “instant grat” song, but if it’s “too offensive for radio” then it might just be.
Drones is set to be released sometime during the first half of the year which is quickly coming to an end.
The time crunch is on.
