Muse unveil album art and tracklisting for “The 2nd Law”

I’m genuinely looking forward to the new Muse album. I mean, yeah, a small part of me really wants to like it, but I’m mainly just eager to see what happens when the band really takes their Queen influence to the extreme and throws a little dubstep in there. If it doesn’t work, something tells me it will be a damned glorious train wreck. If it does though, then I’ll be happy the band were able to innovate and give us something new and cool.

The band recently released the cover art to the left for their upcoming album The 2nd Law. It’s certainly intriguing – funnily enough it looks like what I imagine may happen if you mashed up the art for In Rainbows and Ágætis byrjun. It’s also interesting the band are continuing their tribute to the colour spectrum present on the artwork for their previous album, The Resistance.

Along with the artwork, the track listing for the album was also released:
Panic Station
Follow Me
Big Freeze
Save Me
Liquid State
The 2nd Law: Unsustainable
The 2nd Law: Isolated System

Believe it or not, we can actually piece a few things together (the beginnings of a narrative, even!) from the track titles alone, as we already know The 2nd Law is a concept album dealing with the second law of thermodynamics. We also know from the trailer that at some point a natural cata – ah, you know what? No. Let’s not do this. The band release The 2nd Law September 17th.
