Set for release on 18 June, the remix album is meant to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the UK band’s breakout LP, Origin Of Symmetry. Muse worked with longtime producer Rich Costey on the remix album, opting for a “more open, dynamic and less crushed sound”, the band said in a statement.

The band also shared a behind-the-scenes video in which Matt Bellamy and drummer Dominic Howard discuss the key differences between the remixed track and the original Megalomania.
“We had a tendency back in those days to make it sound like some old vintage record, like a record from the 20s,” Howard noted. “We’ve just taken a slightly different approach with the new one.”
Bellamy added, “It was a real authentic original church organ sound [in the original], again [we’ve] really pushed that up in the new mix so it’s much more prominent. I think it’s the track that’s changed the most.”

The Megalomania remix is the second track from the anniversary album that the band have shared. When they announced the project in May, Muse also released the remix of Citizen Erased, which you can listen to here.
