Muse have unveiled another brand new single from their upcoming album, Drones. Check out 'Mercy' below.
The track follows on 'Psycho' and 'Dead Inside' as the latest official taster from their hotly-anticipated seventh record. A driving and pulsing piano-led arena power-anthem, 'Mercy' seems to carry a similar feel to material from their Black Hole And Revelations era, albeit with a rejuvenated energy and very forward-looking approach.
"The opening line of 'Mercy - ‘help me I’ve fallen on the inside' - is a reference to the protagonist knowing and recognising that they have lost something, they have lost themselves," says frontman Matt Bellamy. "This is where he realises that he is being overcome by the dark forces that were introduced to him in 'Psycho'."

Last week, the band also took to Instagram to share shots from the video shoot to 'Mercy':
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. Bellamy has also said that the band will be headlining Bestival in September. Read about why that will be awesome here, and for tickets and information, visit here.
