MUSE RELEASE NEW SONG “MERCY”

SINGLE PREMIERES ON RADIO ONE AT 7:20PM TONIGHT (MAY 18) AND ONLINE AND STREAMING SERVICES WORLDWIDE

THE GROUP HEADLINE AT DOWNLOAD, THE UK’s BIGGEST ROCK FESTIVAL, ON JUNE 13 – THEIR SOLE UK DATE OF 2015

May 18, 2015 – MUSE will release “Mercy”, the third track from their forthcoming album ‘Drones’ tonight, May 18th as the song premieres on BBC Radio 1.  The previously released two songs “Dead Inside” and “Psycho” began the story of ‘Drones’, which is released on June 8.  On June 13 the band headline at Download, the UK’s biggest rock festival, their debut performance at the event and their sole UK performance of 2015.

Says lead singer Matt Bellamy, “The opening line of “Mercy” – ‘help me I’ve fallen on the inside’ – is a reference to the protagonist knowing and recognizing that they have lost something, they have lost themselves. This is where they realize they’re being overcome by the dark forces that were introduced in “Psycho”.”

“Mercy” appears on their forthcoming studio album, Drones, which will be released June 8th by Warner Bros. Records.  According to Bellamy the record “explores the journey of a human: from abandonment and loss of hope, to indoctrination by the system to be a human drone, to eventual defection from the oppressors.”

1. Dead Inside

2. [Drill Sergeant]

5. Reapers
