Muse: With an electric anthem that showcases the band’s prowess for storytelling and sonic-scene-creation!

Muse – Well Of The People

Muse was founded in 1994 and comprise Matthew Bellamy (lead vocalist, lead guitarist, and pianist), Chris Wolstenholme (bass guitarist) and Dominic Howard (drummer).

Muse came together at the age of 13, although the band was then known as Gothic Plague. The name changed to Fixed Penalty, then Rocket Baby Dolls, and finally to Muse, following a battle of the bands competition which they won despite playing music that was overly aggressive and smashing everything on stage.

In 2018 Muse released their seventh album Simulation Theory and now they are back their eight album Will Of The People and share the title track, and it’s a typically understated affaiMuse have shared an animated sci-fi video for the title track of their forthcoming Will Of The People album, depicting an uprising in a dystopian future.

Lyrics:

The will of the people, the will of the people, the will of the will of  X 4

Let’s push the emperors into the ocean,

The will of the people, the will of the people, the will of the will of the

Don’t need a goon to flood with devotion,   

The will of the people, the will of the people, the will of the will of the

With every hour our number increases

The will of the people, the will of the people, the will of the will of the

We’ll smash your institutions to pieces

The will of the people, the will of the people, the will of the will of the

We need a transformation

One we all can see

We need a revolution

So long as we stay free

The will of the will of the

Welcome to the desecration baby

We’ll build you right up then we’ll tear you down

Welcome to the celebration baby

The judges are jailed and the future is ours

Free your sons and unlock your daughters

We’ll throw the baby out with the bath water

With every second our anger increases

We’re gonna smash this nation to pieces

The will of the people, the will of the people, the will of the will of the

We need a transmutation

One we all conceive

We need a revolution

So long as we stay free

The will of the will of the

Welcome to the desecration baby

We’ll build you right up then we’ll tear you down

Welcome to the celebration baby

The judges are jailed and the future is ours

The will of the people, the will of the people, the will of the will of  X 5

The will of the people, the will of the sheeple, the will of the will of

The will of the people, the will of the people, the will of the will of  X 2

The will of the will of the

Welcome to the desecration baby

We’ll build you right up then we’ll tear you down

Welcome to the celebration baby

The judges are jailed and the future is ours

Everyone got that? Cool, cool.

It’s the third single to be released from Will Of The People, following on from the January release of Won’t Stand Down and the March release of Compliance.

Speaking of the album title track, which the band’s people describe as «an electric anthem that showcases the band’s prowess for storytelling and sonic-scene-creation and we say sounds like a more berserk, glam rock-and-conspiracy theory-influenced re-imagining of Marilyn Manson’s Beautiful People, Matt Bellamy says, “Will of the People is [a] fictional story set in a fictional metaverse on a fictional planet ruled by a fictional authoritarian state run by a fictional algorithm manifested by a fictional data centre running a fictional bank printing a fictional currency controlling a fictional population occupying a fictional city containing a fictional apartment where a fictional man woke up one day and thought, ‘Fuck this».

Scheduled to arrive on August 26 via Warner Records, Will Of The People, Muse’s ninth studio album has been described by Matt Bellamy as «a greatest hits album – of new songs.In conversation with The Big Issue, he explains how the forthcoming record was conceived in response to their label’s request for a best of compilation. We were reaching that point where there was talk about maybe doing a greatest hits album, and we weren’t really in favour of doing that», the frontman says. «So it’s almost like we’ve made a record that is a greatest hits album – of new songs«.

«That means this album might have a metal track on it – and it’s like, the best metal track we’ve ever done. Or there’s a sort of soft ballad, love song and it’s probably the best ballad love song we’ve ever done, and so on.It’s a montage of the best of Muse. It’s a new take on all of those types of genres that we’ve touched on in the past».

About Ulf Backstrøm (7413 Articles)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
