New Album Artwork

If you've looked at the news lately (I'm sure you have) the 3 most recent events regaurding the new album/tour have a picture that seems like it may be the artwork for a single, or maybe the new album. If this is the artwork, what are you thoughts? Would you like to see something different?

I doubt it's the album cover, could be the first single's cover though. It's got something to do with the subject of the album, IIRC (although I can't remember what it is).

It might be the theme. Something like The Resistance covers had shapes and patterns.

I don't think it's any of the covers, I just think its being used for the tour posters and tickets etc

... where there is already an artwork thread. Yeah, it's for fan art, but doesn't mean questions regarding artwork in general can't be asked there.

i liked the sounds they have produced. creepy. I recall the idea Matt had to issue an album with three parts, one of which would be some ultrasounds noone can really hear. brainwashing

Do you have a link to that quote at all? I remember reading it before but I can't for the life of me, remember where I read it.

What struck me which is how it starts with lots of activity which then reduces to almost nothing. I suppose it's kind of obvious that would happen, but is this what has been described as entropy?

It's kind of the reverse of what has happened in evolution. Evolution being based on the idea of continued progress through adaptation. The Hadron Collider doesn't seem to explain very much. Unless it explains the long haul and predicts that after a spurt of energy everything eventually settles into nothing.

Er, I think in those tests from which the sound file is from, there is a short collision of the lead ions, but they cannot sustain a continous collision, so that's why the sounds die off. That's not about entropy at all (well except that the tests take a lot of energy, which in turn causes heat emissions and entropy increase, but there is nothing specific in this experiment). In general I don't think the album theme has anything to do with the particle collision tests, this work has been going on in CERN etc for decades, it's about looking for certain particles predicted by theories on different forces between particles... Really I don't see it has anything to do with environmental problems on Earth, or even with energy availability considerations.

I suppose it must be a bit disappointing however if he has worked hard to include cryptic little messages, in the video, or even a more blatant message and no one has noticed it.

Made me start to think a bit more about the video. There is the possibility of deliberate use of intertextuality. There seems to be a copy the cover of Absolution, in the shadows of people running, so perhaps this relates to an Apocalypse (so unusual for Muse! ). There appears to be the blatant use of the third eye of course, and I was wondering if there was significance in the use of both the tv and the robot screen, possibly the idea of robotic reporting that doesn't convey reality, but reality still finds it's way through the cracks, hence the reality is panic and terror maybe, looking at the flashes of the reporter's face, but it's sanitised. Also it could be a reference to the idea of economic man, the faulty assumption that people make decisions like machines.
I'm not sure there are any hidden messages on the video, but there are things I don't quite understand... Like what has the couple running in the woods to do with the theme (except that it seems like a continuation to NSC)? Escape from reality? In general there seems to be a lot of people running, escaping, in the video. And yeah there is the news reader and the robot (it makes me think more of a computer screen) telling ugly truths. Where do you see anything from Absolution? Hmm, I still think the idea of the screen telling the truth is more convincing than the screen (robot) being about machinistic decisions.

I guess the stock exchange panic shots are there to show the frenzy for growth which is then all unsustainable.

Seemed like the best thread considering the new album discussion is in this section of threads, and video is sort of visual artwork. It doesn't really belong to twitter thread, and news section is difficult in general, the video is hardly news anymore and in News section threads do not bump up with new posts.

Of course, feel free to move discussion to a more suitable thread in case you have anything to say about the video or comments made about it.

Why don't you make a "video discussion thread" instead. That way you can discuss the videos of the upcoming singles as well.
