Muse Star In Epic Spaghetti Western

Muse Star In Epic Spaghetti Western

Muse have gone all Clint Eastwood in their new Joseph Kahn-directed six-minute epic promo video for new single “Knights of Cydonia.”

The expansive rock track sees prog-pop trio Muse playing as holograms in a bar while scenes include soaring eagles, light sabres and slow motion duels and kung fu moves.

Director Joseph Kahn previously directed Britney Spears' “Toxic”, picking up a Grammy award in the process.
