After creating a true dubstepgate with the announcement of their new record The 2nd Law, Muse took the chance to reassure their fans that the Skrillex influence was minimal – they released the fairly standard, Queen-ish Survival, and the obligatory synth-pop track Madness. The latter, which frontman Matthew Bellamy mentioned might be his favorite song he’s ever written, just got itself an official video.
Directed by Anthony Mandler, the video for Madness features an adequately glossy look, and could very well pass for any pop video released these days. Watch it below:
The 2nd Law is set for a September 28th release, and can be ordered here.
(And in case you’re wondering, that weird touchpad bass thing is called a Kitara.)
