Muse is back with new music!
The UK rockers have announced that their new single, “Won’t Back Down,” will be released Thursday, January 13th. Frontman Matt Bellamy previously teased the song during an Instagram livestream over the holidays where he and his son played a snippet from his car radio. And if you couldn’t guess from the chugging guitars and ripping screams, this looks to be Muse’s heaviest offering yet.
Listen to it below. Pre-save the song here.
Last year, Muse released the remixed 20th-anniversary edition of Origin of Symmetry. Bellamy also released a collection of solo recordings dubbed Cryosleep for Record Store Day. Bellamy revealed to The Sun last year that he started writing songs for a new album saying “I’ve started writing a new Muse album. I started writing when all the protests and all the chaos were kicking off. It’s a weird thing to say but it suits the music I write. It keeps you a little bit on edge.”
This year, Muse are set to headline Isle of Wight Festival and Berlin’s Tempelhof Sounds.
