Muse have revealed what to expect from their new ‘Origin Of’ compilation – due for release later this year.
Earlier this week, frontman Matt Bellamy teased that not only might they play a ‘by request’ show where the fans choose the setlist at Reading & Leeds, but he also alluded to ‘Origin Of Muse’ – a compendium of their first two records, ‘Showbiz’ and ‘Origin Of Symmetry’, with added “early demos and rare stuff etc,” adding that it would be “a kind of autobiography of music”.
Now, a new video interview has emerged with more details about the project.
