Muse have released a new single, ‘Dig Down’, ahead of US tour dates later this summer.

“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”, says the band’s Matt Bellamy.

Given the ‘fighting the odds’ theme of the track, the video for the song features model Lauren Wasser, whose leg was amputated as the result of toxic shock syndrome from a tampon.

Director Lance Drake says of the clip: “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”.
