NFTs are of increasing interest to artists. After the pictorial arts, the world of music is also embarking on this exciting new adventure. It’s Muse, the famous British rock band that opens the ball by releasing their new album exclusively in NFT. Is this a simple marketing stunt or is the band really interested in the Metavers? Fans remain puzzled.
The new album of the group Muse, led by Matthew Bellamy, is called “Will of the People”. It contains 10 new tracks that don’t stray too far from the band’s passion. But to everyone’s surprise, the album was released exclusively is NFT. “Will of the People” immerses fans in a form of total dystopia. A very special atmosphere that they can find from the first clips of the album.
Through this great novelty, the group Muse also signs its return to the front of the stage after a few months of absence. This epic return will definitely stay in the history, because “Will of the People” will be sold exclusively in the form of NFT with only 1,000 copies.
The album, released on August 26, 2022, is already available on the Serenade site in Web 3, where it is already out of stock.
But for some fans, such the decision of the band Muse to release their new album in NFT was not surprising. The group is already known for its very futuristic leaning which can be read in all of its discography. Muse is a very futuristic group and it appears with this label without any complex. Driven by a great passion for science fiction, each title plunges fans directly into a world that is sometimes spatial, most of the time ultra-technological, and sometimes even post-apocalyptic. Muse is a group that we recognise in its words, its sounds and its music videos which promise a very unpleasant future, but which nevertheless amuse the fans. They’re one of the few rock bands we hoped to see in the metaverse one day.
NFTs have significant benefits for artists and their fans.
Additionally, NFTs can be sold at a fixed price or at the auction. Putting fans in competition makes it possible to generate a larger profit than the sum obtained by a stream on Spotify. By configuring their NFTs, the artist can even collect royalties from each sale.
