Coldplay frontman Chris Martin has praised Muse's new single "Madness", saying it is their best single to date.
The single, which was premiered yesterday, is the latest song to be heard from Muse's forthcoming sixth album "The 2nd Law" and Martin is clearly impressed with what he hears. Taking to Twitter to praise the band who Coldplay once supported on tour, Martin said:
"Having been their opening act 13 years ago I'm proud to say that I think this is Muse's best song ever."
Madness' is the first offical release from the album following Olympics theme tune "Survival" and instrumental track, "Unsustainable".
"It's all really really different, it's definitely some of the most weird and diverse music we've ever made and put on an album together," drummer Dom Howard told Mary Anne Hobbs on XFM. "It's an interesting album, I love it. It's one of those albums you put on and every track's a surprise so it keeps you interested and makes you want to listen to every track again."
Discussing the album further, Howard adds that they chose to release "Madness" as the single as it sounds so different to previous Muse singles.
"It's like a very minimal, electronic, almost like... a ballad. It's something very, very different for us and I guess it builds - like most of our songs really. It just felt like something very fresh for us, felt like something we'd never done before so that's why we thought it would be a good idea to put that out."
