Muse’s Halloween Gift is a cover for Cramps’ ‘New Kind Of Kick’. Watch!
Muse started teasing fans with news of a ‘Halloween Special’ earlier this week, before stille of a new video appeared across their social networks. After yet more teasing, they dropped the track and video.
It shows the band clad in 1950s rocker leather with slicked back hair, performing in front of horror screen icon Elvira as frontman Matt Bellamy grabs his crotch and struts before some gorey lyric display. The track itself takes Muse into new territory for them, channelling the spirit of Iggy And The Stooges at their most menacing 1970s peak to take on The Cramps’ classic.
This marks the band’s first new material since they released ‘Drones’ in 2015 and completed a world arena and stadium tour.
