Muse return with ‘Thought Contagion’

It’s the first single from a new album, expected this year.

Muse are back! After announcing details of a new single earlier this week, the new track - ‘Thought Contagion’ - has now arrived.

Complete with a vibrant, neon ’80s video, the track is flamboyant, anthemic comeback.

“The meaning of the song ‘Thought Contagion’ is about how other people’s thoughts, ideas and beliefs can sometimes infect your mind, get into your head and change the way you think yourself,” frontman Matt Bellamy said of the track in a statement.

The band’s Matt Bellamy revealed to Rolling Stone that ‘Thought Contagions’ is about “watching American news stations. We’re living in an age where these sort of ideologies, people’s belief systems, whether they are true or false, are getting a lot of air time, especially ones on the false side.

“I think that we’re living in an unusual period where a lot of airtime is being given to crazy ideas. The flip side is that we’re living in a time where pointing out someone’s inaccuracies, using science for example, is becoming increasingly difficult. Sometimes it’s even perceived as an insensitive thing to do.”
