Muse have shared a brand new video for their single ‘Something Human’. The track is taken from the band’s forthcoming album, due out in November.
The new visuals start off with frontman Matt Bellamy driving about in a sports car before being chased by bandmates Dominic Howard and Chris Wolstenholme.
It was directed by Lance Drake, who worked with the band on their videos for ‘Dig Down’ and ‘Thought Contagion.’ You can watch it below.
“Our aim with ‘Something Human’ was to continue the journey that began in ‘Dig Down’ and ‘Thought Contagion,;” Drake said. “Pulling further into a simulated world we follow Matt, Dom, and, Chris on the chase of a lifetime – where something as simple as returning some video tapes becomes an epic journey.”
“Life on the road can bring out your inner beast, this song and video is about taming that beast, desiring a return to something human,” added Bellamy. “Plus, Teen Wolf is cool.”
Meanwhile, it was announced yesterday that Muse‘s tour director Glen Rowe is leaving his position to launch a brand new charity that aims to help new bands at the grassroots level of the industry.
Rowe aims to open five small venues across the country in London, Birmingham, Cardiff, Leeds and Edinburgh, with hopes to reignite opportunities for up-and-coming artists.
“There’s a lot of goodwill behind this as long as we keep it up,” Rowe told Music Week. “Momentum is everything. This is a project for life I’m looking at, I’ve got to dedicate a long period of my career to make it happen – and I’m a stubborn bastard!”
Rowe also blamed the max closure of grassroots venues for creating a “bottleneck” for the sector, making it difficult for new bands to find suitable venues to play.
