British trio Muse have shared a new song, “Dig Down,” via its video. Lance Drake directed the science fiction styled video, which stars model and activist Lauren Wasser as she tries to escape from some sort of facility. The band appear on TV screens, with frontman Matt Bellamy looking a bit like 1980s computer generated cult character Max Headroom. Watch it below.

Bellamy had this to say about the song and video in a press release: “When I was writing this song, I was looking to counteract the current negativity in the world and give inspiration, optimism and hope to people to fight for the causes they believe in; that as individuals we can choose to change the world if we want to.”

Drake had this to say: “The song is about survival and fighting the odds - when I heard this song I knew I wanted to do an action packed narrative. I’d heard about Lauren a year or so ago, I read her story and she gave me personal inspiration so I’d always kept her in mind to shoot with one day. The power of the song made me think of her ... so I wrote the video narrative based on Lauren’s story and how she overcame the odds.”
