After recent single Won’t Stand Down, Muse have shared that they'll be releasing another new track, Compliance, later this week.

Presumably taken from the follow-up to 2018's Simulation Theory, the song will arrive on Thursday, March 17, and it'll likely be a pretty serious one judging by the message the band have shared alongside the announcement: “Compliance is about the promise of safety and reassurance sold to us by powerful entities during times of vulnerability,” they write.

“Gangs, governments, demagogies, social media algorithms and religions seduce us with misleading untruths and comforting fables.

“They want us to join their narrow worldview in exchange for obedience and turning a blind eye to our own internal voice of reason and compassion.

“They just need our Compliance.”

On March 9, the band also shared the following clip – which is simply titled MUSE:
