Muse Unveil ‘The 2nd Law’ Album Art

Written by Mike Hohnen on July 31, 2012

Having nailed the soundtrack to the 2012 London Olympic Games, Muse is now putting together the final pieces for their 6th studio release The 2nd Law. We now have the official album art.

We’ve already heard a couple of tracks from the release. Survival and Unsustainable, together with the official album trailer, gave an insight into the album, which didn’t seem to meet the appetite of the salivating masses. The dupsteppy top layer of the tracks wasn’t the usual material you’d expect to hear from the Brit rockers, and the revelation in the months following that Skrillex was a major influence seemed to only repel the fans further.

Though the diehards have stayed true, you can’t judge an album based on bits and pieces anyway. Matt Bellamy explained the bizarre mix of soundscapes to NME, stating, “We’ve tried a bunch of new things, which the trailer gives a glimpse of. There’s only one song that’s like that. We’ve basically tried to do what Rage Against the Machine did with hip-hop in the 1990s and take a bit of the electronic world and dubstep and play it with real instruments. There’s only one track like that, the rest of it is very, very diverse.”

The album will hit shelves September 17 and marks a long-anticipated return of the band since 2009’s The Resistance, so check out the album art above, and the tracklistings below.

‘Panic Station’
‘Follow Me’
‘Big Freeze’
‘Save Me’
‘Liquid State’
‘The 2nd Law: Unsustainable’
‘The 2nd Law: Isolated System’
