After iTunes almost ruined Muse’s announcement about their new album a few days ago, the band have officially released the first song off of their new album Drones.
The new song, “Psycho,” was teased on Instagram last week, with the group only giving fans a small taste of what to expect directly from the studio.
Today, the band debuted the song in full.
Check out the lyric video below which begins with a drill sergeant shouting at a solider and then shifts to the band performing in front of a wall with images projected upon it.
Now that the lead single has officially been released, Muse also revealed a couple of more things about Drones like the release date which will be June 8, 2015 and that pre-orders will begin today at 7:30 p.m. GMT (3:30 EST for those in the United States).
Like iTunes leaked, those who pre-order the album will get an “instant grat” track which might be “Psycho.” We’re not sure.
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.
