Muse will premiere “Mercy” on BBC Radio 1 tonight (18 May) at 7pm BST! The lyric video will be released at 7:25pm BST.
The previously released two songs “Dead Inside" and “Psycho” began the story of Drones, which is released on 8 June. On 13 June, the band headline at Download, the UK's biggest rock festival, their debut performance at the event.
From Matt: “The opening line of ‘Mercy’ - Help me I’ve fallen on the inside - is a reference to the protagonist knowing and recognizing that they have lost something, they have lost themselves. This is where they realize they’re being overcome by the dark forces that were introduced in ‘Psycho.’”
Pre-order Drones to receive instant downloads of “Mercy,” “Dead Inside” and “Psycho.”
