Muse hit it big for a variety of reasons, but the English rock band’s marriage of grandiose, slightly prog-oriented music with vocalist Matt Bellamy and his powerful singing style were key components in making the band a global phenomenon for the past two decades.

This week, Bellamy premiered a solo song titled “Tomorrow’s World” that brings together some of those epic qualities.

A hushed, atmospheric piano-driven anthem of hope, the track was inspired by Bellamy’s time isolating at home during the coronavirus pandemic:

Said Bellamy said in a statement:

“This song captures my mood and feelings whilst in lockdown.  I have been reminded of what really matters in life and have discovered growing optimism, appreciation and hope for the future. The song title comes from an old BBC TV show called ’Tomorrow’s World,” which I watched as a child in the 1980s and always enjoyed the wild futuristic predictions of what life would be like now. It all seems rather lovely, comforting and naive in retrospect and reminds me that none of us ever really know what the future holds. “

The song almost sounds well suited on the soundtrack to a dystopian science fiction film, which in itself is also representative of much of the music Muse has released over the years.
