Muse have announced that their new single titled Dig Down will be released on May 18.

The news comes after Matt Bellamy, Chris Wolstenholme and Dominic Howard teased a nine-second clip on social media showing behind-the-scenes footage of a new video being filmed.

Now they’ve confirmed that fans won’t have long to wait until they hear new material.

Muse released their seventh album Drones in 2015, with drummer Howard reporting soon after its launch that they’d already turned their thoughts to a follow-up.

He said: “We need to do something really different to anything we’ve done before. It’s time to kind of lose our minds a little bit more in the studio, and delve into areas of music that we’re not used to or comfortable with.”

Muse are gearing up for a North American tour with special guests Thirty Seconds To Mars and Pvris which will get underway later this month. They’ll then return to Europe for a handful of shows, including headline sets at the Reading and Leeds festivals in August.
