The music video was directed by Guy Shelmerdine, and was produced in partnership with Apple Music and Vrse.works, a virtual reality production company.

The video is shown through the POV of drones, hovering above the action and interacting with it.

Users will also need a pair of virtual reality head-mounted display in order to experience it. The virtual reality version of the music video is also avalible through muse.mu.

Concept and Storyline

The music video is set in 2025, when "Government Drones fill the sky and freedom has been banished". It shows rebellious activists protesting against the "Government Drones", fighting the futuristic cyborg riot police and later taking control over them, with Muse appearing between these shots playing the song on their instruments.
