Will Of The People will be Muse’s first NFT album in seven years


Muse has said that their new album, “Will of the People,” will come out in an NFT version.

The band’s ninth album will be the first of its kind to enter the UK charts in a non-fungible token edition. It is the first new way to listen to music since album streams in 2015.

The Muse NFT album will cost £20 and only be available in 1,000 copies around the world when it comes out on August 26. It will be sold by Serenade, a “green” NFT platform.

Buyers will get a high-resolution FLAC file download of the album with a different sleeve, and Muse will digitally sign it. Each of the first 1,000 buyers will also have their names listed permanently on a linked list of buyers.

The Official Charts Company in the UK made NFT albums eligible for the charts a few months ago, but this is the first time the vendor has been approved as a chart-return digital retailer.

“Just as vinyl, 8-track, cassette tapes, CDs and even MiniDisc, DCC and DAT have been welcomed into the charts, we will also welcome Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) – and we will be delighted when the first album delivered as an NFT contributes to the chart, with Serenade and Muse leading the way this summer,”

“NFTs are a new, exciting format, the potential for which is only just beginning to be explored and I am sure will play a part in the Official Charts for years to come.”

Also, frontman Matt Bellamy put out three new songs as NFTs last year. One of them was recorded on a guitar that belonged to Jeff Buckley.

Muse also just put out their new single, “Kill or Be Killed.” This is the fourth single from their upcoming album, following the title track, “Compliance,” and “Won’t Stand Down.” Here is where you can pre-order “Will of the People.”
