Muse is back and they have a dystopian video for their new song, “ Dig Down.” “Dig Down” is their first new music since their 2015 album, ‘Drones.’
In the video for “Dig Down”, model Lauren Wasser, is featured as a cyborg-esque warrior fighting against dictatorship henchmen. The inspirational video is also met with inspirational lyrics like, “Against all the odds, You will find a way” and “Dig down And find faith.” In an interview with NME , Muse lead singer Matt Bellamy explained, “When I was writing this song, I was looking to counteract the current negativity in the world and give inspiration, optimism and hope to people to fight for the causes they believe in; that as individuals we can choose to change the world if we want to.”
“Dig Down” also has a similar sound to their previous songs, however, the choruses are reminiscent of Queen songs. It will be interesting to see if their upcoming album will take the direction of rock-opera.
