It's inspired by Richard Dawkins and memes...
'Thought Contagion'

Muse have shared their new single 'Thought Contagion'.

The band have been teasing something new all week, and dropped past Annie Mac's Radio 1 show to make the announcement.

Typically over the top, 'Thought Contagion' was seemingly inspired by Richard Dawkins and memes, which is surely a first for any prog-punk-metal-pop-tech splurge.

Out now, 'Thought Contagion' is taken from ongoing sessions for their next album - it's under way, but not quite finished, they say.

The last Muse album came in 2015, with 'Drones' representing a return to the group's guitar tendencies.

Lance Drake shot the - ahem - remarkable visuals for 'Thought Contagion', and you can check it out below.
