    Muse have announced the title, tracklist, and release date of their eighth studio album: Simulation Theory, spanning 11 tracks, is due out November 9th through Warner Bros. Records.

    Serving as the follow-up to 2015’s Drones, Simulation Theory was produced by the band alongside Rich Costey, Mike Elizondo, Shellback, and… Timbaland. Of the 11 songs found on the tracklist, we’ve already heard “Thought Contagion”, “Dig Down”, and “Something Human”. A fourth track, “The Dark Side”, is being previewed today to coincide with the album’s announcement. Like Muse’s previous three offerings, “The Dark Side” is accompanied by an elaborate music video, which you can watch below.

    Simulation Theory will be released in three formats: Standard (11 tracks), Deluxe (16 tracks), and Super Deluxe (21 tracks). The expanded tracklisting boasts an acoustic gospel version of “Dig Down”, a UCLA Bruin Marching Band-featuring version of “Pressure”, a live version of “Thought Contagion”, acoustic versions of several tracks including “Something Human”, and “Alternate Reality” versions of “Algorithm” and “The Dark Side”.

    Artwork for the album was illustrated by digital artist Kyle Lambert, who’s done the poster art for Stranger Things, Jurassic Park, and many other films. The Super Deluxe cover was illustrated by Paul Shipper, whose previous work includes Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Avengers: Affinity War, amongst others.

    Muse will support Simulation Theory with a world tour in 2019; dates are still forthcoming.
