Muse reveal release date for new single ‘Thought Contagion’

Muse have revealed that their new single, titled ‘Thought Contagion’, will be released later this week.

Last year, it emerged that the band had been working at Air Studios in London where they were said to have recorded three new songs. They said that one of the tracks was “heavy” and the others “not really”.

After dropping one-off single ‘Dig Down’ last May, the band have been teasing follow-up ‘Thought Contagion’ in recent days.

After appearing to send out a casting call for people to appear in their new music video, the band have now confirmed that their next single will be called ‘Thought Contagion’.

Last week the group shared a poster featuring bassist Chris Wolstenholme and have now unveiled what appears to be the single’s artwork, revealing that the song will surface on Thursday (February 15).

In their listing calling for actors for the video, Muse wrote: “We’re looking for a couple of super edgy guys to play punk/street guys.”

“Wild hair, tattoos and piercings welcome.”

The ‘elderly gal’, who they request to be between 58 and 75, is described as a “lovely gal with a terrific character.”

The casting notes for the ‘huge bouncer’ specify that he “must be comfortable in a hazmat suit.”

The band have also been sharing photos from their time in the studio in recent weeks and months:

Last year also saw the band confirm that they were working with Rich Costey,  who produced their third and fourth albums ‘Absolution’ and ‘Black Holes And Revelations’.

Muse have also told fans not to expect a new album in the near future, but instead a series of singles and EPs.

The good thing is we’re gonna put out songs like Dig Down ahead of the album,” said frontman Matt Bellamy. “We’re going to put out at least another three songs… or even more ahead of the next album coming out.”

“People are going to see into the creative process as we’re writing and recording the songs, and we’re going to put them out quite soon after.”

He added: “Even though the overall album will be a long wait some of the songs are going to be available way ahead of that.”

The band have also teased fans a new box set of their early material.

Drummer Dom Howard later later added: “We’re putting together a book with some remastered vinyl. We remastered the first two albums ‘Showbiz‘ and ‘Origin of Symmetry’. We’re putting together a package with a lot of historic content. Bits and pieces like photographs, music and some really old demos. All sorts of old stuff that basically attempts to tell a story from where we started as a band when we were kids in school to ‘Origin of Symmetry’.
