This is officially the most anticipated track on Drones for me. So what are people's thoughts, will this be a stand-alone story or will it continue from Aftermath?

 

Matt said the narrative comes to an end in Aftermath and that The Globalist has its own self-contained narrative. There'll probably be some thematic continuation though.

Aftermath is the end of the protagonists POV. The Globalist and Drones will be part of the same concept, just from a general POV.

Strings? Could it be the Instagram clip with the Milan strings then?

Also, looking forward that piano ballad ending, although I don't wanna think of this song as a CE sequel, as I want to keep my expectations low (or not as high as if I was thinking of a sequel)

Matt: The first half sounds like something from a film, then it goes to a middle section that metal, then the outro is a big piano ballad.

 

(From Q magazine)

 

If that's the case, I definitely think Drones will be something like Redemption or Ruled By Secrecy (preferably the latter).

 

Also, Milan strings and that 7-string IG clip maybe (not sure if they're in the same key)?

Dat description...

Not sure if "piano ballad" must be taken positively. The most recent Muse "piano ballad" is Explorers.

 

Thanks. So apparently The Handler's middle section has similarities to Showbiz the song. I remember Matt mentioning something about that on twitter earlier this year I think?

 

yeah

it does make sense, I guess. With the title and all

If this really is the song that sort of inspired the mindset of the entire album, I'm really, really looking forward to hearing it.

Of course, Matt sort of laughed through the entire thematic description of the song in an interview, so I'm also a bit apprehensive. :chuckle:
