In recent years, Muse has been exploring a more acoustic side, leaving the heavier vibes off their new music. That trend appears to follow with their new song, “Something Human.” The track is taken from the band’s forthcoming album, due out in November.
The video is really cool, with a “Teen Wolf” inspiration. Lance Drakedirected the clip and it starts with frontman Matt Bellamy watching a VHS cassette on a virtual reality headset, then climbs into his futuristic sports car and starts speeding down a desert highway. Eventually, the musician attracts the attention of the cops, played by band members Dominic Howard and Chris Wolstenholme, and a high-speed chase ensues. Bellemy eventually turns into a werewolf at the end of the video.
“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,” said Bellamy. “Plus, Teen Wolf is cool.”
“Something Human” marks the third single Muse has released in the past few months.
