When Muse named its new album Drones and slapped on album art like this, you knew you were getting into some serious, post-apocalyptic arena rock business. With the album arriving Monday, the band shared another new track called “The Handler.”
Check it out in the lyric video below:
Frontman Matt Bellamy spends the song singing to this “handler,” wailing unsettling cries like “I will execute your demands” over the sort of high-tech rock heroics we’ve come to expect over Muse’s past few records. It all comes with the visual of storybook characters spun from a tree-like merry-go-round, with the band playing in front.
