Muse – Survival Piano Sheet Music

Survival is Muse’s fourth studio album. It was released on 9 September 2009 in the United Kingdom, and on 12 September 2009 elsewhere. Muse started recording their next album ‘The Resistance’ at the end of 2008 but decided to put it aside to go back into the studio after playing two shows at Wembley Stadium during The 2nd Law Tour.

The result was Muse’s longest and most electronica-influenced album to date. Survival is Muse’s first studio album without longtime producer Rich Costey, who had been producing Muse albums since their third studio album ‘Absolution’. Muse instead hired Mike Elizondo, who produced the band’s single “Uprising” from The Resistance .

Muse wanted to evolve their sound on the album, having performed just Muse songs with “The Resistance”. Muse have described Survival as being a more “up” album than The Resistance. According to Matthew Bellamy, Survival is a cross between Muse’s first and third albums: both of these albums were more guitar-based than Muse’s others, yet still featured the electronica Muse had become famous for. Muse wanted to make sure that they didn’t alienate fans with Survival.

Matt Bellamy has been quoted saying ” We’ve made quite a few different sounding songs and we wanted to do something which was a bit more direct, a bit more basic, but still retaining our identity… I’m not saying all the songs are simple, but I think they’re more direct… We’ve worked harder on this album than we ever have before. Muse is my life and Muse has been the most important thing in my life for ten years now”.

Muse has claimed that Survival is “less grandiose” which could easily be seen through their choice of singles. Muse’s lead single “Uprising” was Muse’s least-epic song to date, being an uplifting rock anthem, with lyrics about overcoming oppression and inner struggle. Muse chose this because they felt that it suited the album better than a more epic opener would have. The second single “Resistance”, which Muse had been performing live for some time prior to the album’s completion, is Muse at their most Muse-like; loud guitar riffs over fast-paced drums and bass. Muse has stated that “Undisclosed Desires” is one of Matt Bellamy’s favorite songs on the new album. Muse revealed in an interview with ‘Q’ Magazine that Miley Cyrus inspired the song. Muse has described “I Belong to You” as being one of Muse’s most personal songs, with lyrics written for his wife, actress Kate Hudson. Muse also revealed in an interview with ‘Q’ Magazine that Muse wrote “Unnatural Selection” about modern humans and how our society is evolving too fast for our own good. Muse has claimed that Muse wrote “Exo-Politics” about the relationship between superpowers and war, particularly the North Korean situation. Muse has stated in an interview with ‘The Sun’ newspaper that “MK Ultra” is Muse’s response to people who question Muse’s intelligence and their heavy use of themes based on conspiracy theories in their songs.
