According to Matt Bellamy, frontman for Muse, the group's upcoming album, The 2nd Law, marks the first time the band has written and recorded songs about relationships.
"We're singing about things like relationships for the first time. Actually, I did that for a bit on the first album [1999's Showbiz] but then I started doing interviews and thought, 'Oh my God, I can't answer these questions they're getting too personal.' So that's when we started getting all conceptual and pretending the album was about the end of the world, or whatever," Bellamy told NME.
In particular, the second single from the album, "Madness," is a song about the travails of romantic connections:
"'Madness' is about friction in a relationship, resolving conflict with a loved one and the madness of being caught up in fighting with someone you love," he said.
