Muse have released a brand new song from their forthcoming eighth studio album.

It's called 'Dig Down' and the video stars model Lauren Wasser - who lost her leg due to toxic shock syndrome - and whose TED Talk can be seen here.

The song's themes are "unity and survival - fighting for what’s right when your back’s against the wall", and Wasser is set to be a big talking point in the album's campaign.

"The song is about survival and fighting the odds – when I heard this song I knew I wanted to do an action packed narrative," said director Lance Drake. "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.”
