Self-isolation in response to COVID-19 has been no joke, and while many people are feeling anxious and overwhelmed, others have found inspiration and the energy to create. Thankfully, Muse frontman Matt Bellamy is now offering us his own new song made out of the quarantine. His solo song, “Tomorrow’s World,” was “made during lockdown” and will be out very soon. Today, fans can hear a preview of the track.
In the new teaser of “Tomorrow’s World,” we hear piano melody over humming strings. It grows gradually, first moving towards major chord optimism, then falling into a sinister minor chord. By the end of the clip, it’s a stormy soundscape even as the piano climbs higher. It sounds epic, and up there with the best of Muse’s more grandiose compositions. We can’t wait to hear it in full.
In response to questions from fans, Matt confirmed that “Tomorrow’s World” is just him singing and playing piano, with the BBC Orchestra filling out the sound.
Listen to the preview of “Tomorrow’s World” below:
In November 2018, Matt Bellamy’s band Muse released their incredible album Simulation Theory. It launched the singles “Dig Down,” “Thought Contagion,” “Something Human,” “The Dark Side,” and “Pressure,” plus videos for the songs “Algorithm,” “Break It To Me,” and “Blockades.”
Last December, Muse shared a robust boxset of their first two albums, Showbiz and Origin Of Symmetry. Within their Origin Of Muse boxset, fans got not only the first two albums, but also all their b-sides and bonus tracks, live recordings, and a plethora of demos – both of songs we know and songs we’d never heard before. It’s a must-have for any Muse fan.
