Chris Martin: 'Muse's new single 'Madness' is their best song ever'
'Madness' continues to grow in popularity
The track, which is the latest to be heard from Muse's forthcoming sixth album 'The 2nd Law', can be heard below.
In a post on his Twitter page, Martin said:
Having been their opening act 13 years ago I'm proud to say that I think this is Muse's best song ever.
'Madness' is the first offical release from the album following Olympic theme tune 'Survival' and instrumental track, 'Unsustainable'. 'The 2nd Law' is due to be released on October 1. The 13-track album is the follow-up to 2009's 'The Resistance'.
The Devon trio will tour the UK in October, playing five shows. The gigs begin at Glasgow's SECC on October 24, before the band move onto London's O2 Arena for two shows on October 26 and 27. They then play Birmingham LG Arena on October 30 before finishing up at Manchester Arena on November 1.
