New Muse song – “Mercy”

One by one, the songs that Muse has released from their new album, Drones, are getting better and better. “Mercy” is a short song, at just under 4 minutes, but it has some prog elements, particularly with the keyboards, which are a very nice touch. The song sort of has a U2 vibe to it, in a good way, with Bellamy’s vocals on point. The lyrics are a lot better than on the previous songs, with nothing offensive in them. Hopefully the rest of the album will follow suit.

    Thanks, Bryan, for posting this. It is indeed much better; I’m really curious to see how the new album fits together. Bellamy is, in my opinion, one of the finest singers in modern rock, and Muse’s prog flourishes are always enjoyable!
