Matt Bellamy has shared a new solo single entitled Tomorrow’s World, inspired by life in lockdown amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
The song’s release was accompanied by a lyric video. Take a listen below:
Bellamy attributed the inspiration behind Tomorrow’s World to his introspective experiences while self-quarantined. “This song captures my mood and feelings whilst in lockdown,” Bellamy told NME. “I have been reminded of what really matters in life and have discovered growing optimism, appreciation and hope for the future.”
Bellamy revealed the title of the new single borrows from an 80s television program. He explained: “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.”
Tomorrow’s World was teased over the last three days in two Instagram posts by the MUSE frontman. Check them out below.
The first featured a teaser of the track:
And the second shared the release date.
The release of the new single marks the third track to arrive from Bellamy outside of MUSE, following media compositions Pray (High Valyrian), for the Game Of Thrones’ soundtrack; and End Title for the 2009 film, The International.
Earlier this year Bellamy teamed up with Manson Guitar Works and global guitar manufacturer Cort to produce an all-new signature guitar, the MBM-1. The guitar was launched as part of the new META Series and aims to introduce Manson’s revered build quality and design at a more affordable price point.
