Muse have shared a new song called “Thought Contagion,” as well as the accompanying video. The song premiered on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show. During an interview with Mac, the band said the song was inspired by Richard Dawkins and the concept of memes. The band also told Mac that the Lance Drake-directed video is a continuation of the story told in the video for 2017 single “Dig Down.” Watch the bonkers ’80s-cyberpunk-vampire-musical clip below. Muse also told Annie Mac that a new album is in the works, but not finished.
Muse released their last record, a quasi-concept album about modern warfare called Drones, in 2015.
