Probably. Los Angeles area code if it's an American number.

Called the number, robot siri-type voice reading what must be the lyrics to Something Human.

Pretty standard Muse love song lyrics, but gave me major Starlight vibes and that was welcome.

I need something human, human human is def the chorus.

They're already reported on MuseWiki under SH page, if anyone's curious.

After reading them, it seems to me this album might be a sort of sequel to the story of Drones thematically speaking, despite the drastic differences in sound.

I never thought about a mention of my long-time favourite band Simply Red here :p:eek: but I can't hear a similarity...

It reminds me of 80's music, for some reason "Take my breath away" by Berlin, from the movie Top Gun. don't ask me why...

No idea how this link will go but Matt just posted a video of himself playing SH solo acoustic.

I really like the solo acoustic version he posted. Be interested to see how the actual version sounds.

Alesi08 13-07-2018 12:20 PM

Now I want a acoustic session. Kinda like Biffy has done when they promote a new album.

TheSmallPrint02 13-07-2018 12:22 PM

Matt posted a video on Instagram of him recording the first verse and chorus.

Whoever suspected it would be acoustic was right. It's a brand new acoustic guitar as well, not the one he used for UD last year.

From what I've heard so far, I actually really like the song - it kind of reminds me of Falling Down from Showbiz, probably mostly due to the use of numbers like "1000" and "500". Though I have a feeling my liking of the song will become an unpopular opinion.

Worth noting, he also states Something Human was the first song written "after the Drones tour", presumably meaning the first written on the new album.

Aaawww...

That was... So good. And it's so fucking refreshing hearing this stripped down style after years of going commando production-wise.
The lyrics are very peculiar, but they work so well. Simple but great chord progressions.

Nice 5 second teaser you bellends. :phu:

Matt reads the forums confirmed. :LOL:

Sounds really good. Can't wait to hear more!

Edit:



Muse seem to be taking a few pages from the Paramore book lately.

That’s the cutest video of Matt you’re ever gonna see.

Song’s alright, defo seems like a layover from Drones lyrically (which is....kinda a shame tbh :chuckle:). I wouldn’t draw much from it sonically ‘cos the studio version clearly has a lot more going on but it seems refreshing in style at least. Couldn’t compare what we’ve just heard to any past Muse song.

bumpypotato 13-07-2018 01:51 PM

I’m actually feeling like this song might be decent.

The teaser deceived me, I'll admit that. Now that I've listened to this preview, though, I think it could be compared indeed to some past compositions: to be more precise, it sounds to me like a more uplifting and brighter version of Falling Down (they're even in the same key, if I'm not mistaken).

Tjet 13-07-2018 02:15 PM

Adorable video. Not sure what I think about the song yet.

Your ear for comparisons is....interesting :chuckle: Nah, they’re in the same key but that’s about it. Falling Down is vvvvv much a blues song through and through, totally different planet to something like this.
