Muse has released the first single from their upcoming album, The 2nd Law, called “Madness”. In the single, the band has taken a more mellow electronic and soulful approach and Bellamy’s lyrics have shifted away from the conspiracy theory induced stories the band used to embellish on and has resorted to the love stricken tone that began to surface in the band’s later works.
I can honestly say that I really enjoy the track, and was relieved that it wasn’t dubstep infused like I had assumed it would be. If the rest of the album sounds like this, I’ll be happy.
The 2nd Law is slated for an October 2 release.
Check out the lyric video just posted by the band.
