Muse will release their new album Drones on June 9 via Warner Bros. Records. Co-produced by Muse and Robert John "Mutt" Lange, the album contains 12 tracks (see below).
In a prepared statement, front man Matt Bellamy said, "To me, 'Drones' are metaphorical psychopaths which enable psychopathic behavior with no recourse. The world is run by drones utilizing drones to turn us all into drones. Drones explores the journey of a human, from their abandonment and loss of hope, to their indoctrination by the system to be a human drone, to their eventual defection from their oppressors."
