As promised, Muse‘s new single has arrived.
The track, titled “Won’t Stand Down,” mixes the U.K. trio’s typically operatic style with some of the heaviest guitar riffs of their career. You can download it now via digital outlets.
“‘Won’t Stand Down’ is a song about standing your ground against bullies, whether that be on the playground, at work or anywhere,” frontman Matt Bellamy says. “Protecting yourself from coercion and sociopathic manipulation and to face adversity with strength, confidence and aggression.”
The accompanying “Won’t Stand Down” video, which finds a frail, older Bellamy using a mysterious device to control his own army, is streaming now on YouTube.
“Won’t Stand Down” is the first new single from Muse to follow their 2018 album, Simulation Theory.
