The return of Muse


Muse will return with their fifth studio album, The Resistance, in September.

Ten years since their debut Showbiz, the bits that have surfaced on the internet so far suggest that they are continuing to evolve and progress. Two tracks currently doing the rounds are album opener ‘Uprising’ which evokes ‘Atlas’ by Battles, and ‘United States Of Eurasia’ which has Queen-type harmonies and backing vocals.

The tracklisting (for those of you who haven’t seen it already!) is as follows:

‘Undisclosed Desires’
‘United States Of Eurasia (+Collateral Damage)’
‘Guiding Light’
‘Unnatural Selection’
‘MK Ultra’
‘I Belong To You (+Mon Coeur S’Ouvre A Ta Voix)’
‘Exogenesis: Symphony Part I (Overture)’
‘Exogenesis: Symphony Part II (Cross Pollination)’
‘Exogenesis Part III (Redemption)’

Yup, a three-part symphony makes up the final three tracks of the album. Normally, this would ring alarm bells for me, but on the strength of Muse’s first four studio albums, I’m intrigued.

These have surfaced on YouTube. (Oh, and ‘click carefully’ (wink! Wink!)

Muse -‘Uprising.’

Muse -‘United States Of Eurasia.’

The Resistance will be released on September 14.
