Muse are set to premiere their brand new single 'Mercy' on Monday (19 May), and have revealed photos from the video shoot.
The track from upcoming seventh album Drones has long been rumoured as the next official single to launch the EP, having been listed on various music retailers and recently played live for the first time at a gig in New York.
Now, it is listed to be played for the first time as the Hottest Record In The World on Annie Mac's BBC Radio One show on Monday night. Not only that, but the band have taken to Instagram to share shots from the video shoot:
'Mercy' is an affirming piano led ballad, quite in keeping with the sonic territory of Muse's Black Holes And Revelations - adding a great deal of variety to what we've heard so far from Drones, with the riff-heavy 'Pyscho', the thrashing 'Reapers' and the electro stomper of 'Dead Inside'.
Not only that, but fans are now speculating as to if the band might be looking to worth with a full orchestra at upcoming live shows, after they shared an image of Matt Bellamy meeting with Gustavo Dudamel of the legendary Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra:
Muse will release Drones on 8 June - and fans should be quite excited, especially after Bellamy declared that it was their best album yet.
They headline Download Festival alongside Slipknot, Kiss, Marilyn Manson and many more. See here for tickets and information.
