Muse have unveiled the trailer for their new studio album, which looks set to be titled 'The 2nd Law'. To watch the trailer, scroll down to the bottom of the page and click.

The trailer features a compilation of news footage over a musical backdrop, which initially begins as an ornate, classical piece in the style of track's like 'Butterflies & Hurricanes' before morphing into a full-on dubstep track.

The trailer ends with the words 'The 2nd Law' and 'September 2012' being shown as the music fades out.

The news footage features an actress reciting lines seem to be derived from the second law of thermodynamics. This is the study of energy and how it transfers between forms.

Muse frontman Matt Bellamy also tweeted the lines, which read as follows: "All natural and technological processes proceed in such a way that the availability of the remaining energy decreases. In all energy exchanges, if no energy enters or leaves an isolated system, the entropy of that system incre,cre,cre,cre,c,c,creases."

He continued: "Energy continuously flows from being concentrated, to becoming dispersed, spread out, wasted and useless. New energy cannot be created and high grade energy is being destroyed. An economy based on endless growth is..."

Reaction online has mixed, with Twitter reaction ranging from @LuLou's ''I'm not going to judge the entire album on one two minute video, but I'm not optimistic'' to @beebobette, who wrote: "No seriously, this is sounding incredible. Once it got to that 1:30 point, I was about to have an aneurysm."

The band's new album is the follow-up to 2009's 'The Resistance' and has been recorded in London.

Little has been revealed about the album so far, but the band have said that they are working on an orchestral score with composer David Campbell, who has previously worked with Radiohead on '15 Step' and U2's Broadway musical Spiderman: Turn Off The Dark.

Muse bassist Chris Wolstenholme has previously said that the band want to do "something radically different" on their new album. You can watch a behind the scenes clip of Muse making their last album 'The Resistance' by scrolling down the page and clicking.
