Muse’s Matt Bellamy: ‘There’s not a lot of love on this album’

April 6, 2015

Muse’s singer Matthew Bellamy has spoken about some of the songs on the band’s forthcoming ‘Drones’ LP.


The album is their 7th studio album and is set to be released on June 8. So far, the band have revealed two songs from the record, including ‘Dead Inside’.

Speaking about the track to Q Magazine, Bellamy opened up about the song’s meaning. Bellamy, who split from his wife, actress Kate Hudson, last year said ‘Dead Inside’ was about “a relationship ending and a person becoming dead inside themselves”.

He concluded: “There isn’t a lot of love on this album.”

Meanwhile, speaking to BBC Radio 1 last month, Bellamy called the album “a modern metaphor for what it is to lose empathy.” He continued: “I think that through modern technology, and obviously through drone warfare in particular, it’s possible to actually do quite horrific things by remote control, at a great distance, without actually feeling any of the consequences, or even feeling responsible in some way.”
