Over the past week, Muse has been taking to social media to tease some major news for their longtime followers (one of the videos can be seen above). At the time, those who were following the group were left with the lingering question of what the teasing may be about. On Thursday (May 11), the English band put those fans’ thoughts to rest when the revealed that they will be releasing a brand new song; their first in nearly two years. The new track is titled “Dig Down” and will make its worldwide debut next Thursday, May 18.
The band made the formal announcement on their official Twitter which featured a new photograph of the trio and the caption, “‘Dig Down’ new single coming 18 May.” According to the band, the song will be a one-off and not part of any new record. The song’s debut will come a couple of days before they hit the road for their summer tour with 30 Seconds to Mars and PVRIS.
The tour will kick off on May 20 at the Perfect Vodka Amphitheater in West Palm Beach, Florida and wrap up four months later on Sept. 20 at the USANA Amphitheatre in Salt Lake City. The complete list of tour dates can be found here.
“Dig Down” will be Muse’s first new song since the release of their seventh studio album, Drones, which came out in the summer of 2015.
