Muse Returns With New Song “Won't Stand Down”
- British rock band Muse, consisting of Matt Bellamy (lead vocals/guitars), Dominic Howard (drums) and Chris Wolstenholme (bass), returned with a new song “Won't Stand Down” alongside a music video on January 14, 2022.
The band shared on social media, “Been counting down the days…we're excited to share what we've been working on with you. Enjoy everyone! Matt, Chris & Dom”
It is their first music in four years since the 2018 album “Simulation Theory”.
The track was written by Matt Bellamy and produced by Aleks von Korff and Muse.
“'Won't Stand Down' is a song about standing your ground against bullies, whether that be on the playground, at work or anywhere,” frontman Matt Bellamy said of the song in a statement. “Protecting yourself from coercion and sociopathic manipulation and to face adversity with strength, confidence and aggression.”
The video was directed by Jared Hogan and filmed in Kiev, Ukraine.
- The band is currently working on their new album. Matt Bellamy told Rolling Stone in 2020, “It depends on what happens in the world, but at the moment we're planning on getting together, ideally in the place we all came together, Devon in Southwest England, and sort of get back to our original ways. And even get back to the way we originally used to make music by meeting a couple of times a week to rehearse. The idea was to do that in 2021. If that goes well, get an album or a bunch of songs together and potentially hit the road again in 2022.”
