In the last two weeks, two new Muse songs were revealed from their upcoming sixth studio album, The 2nd Law, set to be released on September 28th and in the US on October 2nd.
The first track to be revealed is called “The 2nd Law: Unsustainable“, which is very heavily dubstep inspired. It was made available to fans on August 9th if they pre-ordered the album, and the track went to Youtube on August 10th.
The second track and second single, “Madness“, was revealed yesterday. The song takes heavy inspiration from George Michael’s “Faith” and Queen’s “I Want to Break Free” tracks, and bears a heavy resemblance to Depeche Mode.
It seems the band are going in a rather electronic path. They’re my favorite band, so I have no doubts that they’ll make it work somehow…even with the dubstep.
