At this rate, we will have the whole new Muse album before Drones even comes out next week. Just hours after releasing the lyric video for “The Handler,” Muse has now offered up a ’60s styled lyric video for “[JFK]” and “Defector.” The video opens with a John F. Kennedy speech backed by Muse’s orchestral music, before ripping into a comparatively lighthearted, but punchy, song about breaking free. “Defector” isn’t as heavy as a few other songs – rather, it offers some much-needed optimism for the Drones protagonist. The lyric video keeps with the times, and Muse appears on an old TV looking like a modern twist on the Beatles. Check it out:
Muse’s new album, Drones, comes out on June 9th. You can pre-order it on iTunes now and get instant downloads of “Defector,” “The Handler,” “Reapers,” “Mercy,” “Dead Inside,” and “Psycho.” You may want to read up on everything that went into making the album. Keep checking back here for all the latest Muse news – there will likely be at least one more lyric video in advance of Drones!
