Muse to unveil new single ‘Mercy’ on Monday, preview video

'Mercy' is the fourth song to be previewed from new album ‘Drones’

Muse are to unveil their new single ‘Mercy’ on Monday (May 18), when the song receives its premiere on Annie Mac’s Radio 1 show between 7-9pm.

‘Mercy’ is the fourth song to be previewed from Muse’s new album ’Drones’, following ‘Psycho’, ‘Reapers’ and ‘Dead Inisde’. The album is released on June 8. ‘Mercy’ was played live for the first time last week (May 9) at a show at New York’s iHeart Theatre.

Matt Bellamy recently said of ‘Drones’ that it’s Muse’s best album, admitting: “That’s not something I’ve been able to say for a while.”

Muse have shared photos from the video shoot for ‘Mercy’ on their Instagram page, while Bellamy has posted a photo on the site of him meeting Gustavo Dudamel, the director of Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra.

However, Bellamy announced recently that the band will be the final headliner of Bestival on September 11-13, alongside the previously announced Duran Duran and The Chemical Brothers.
