Earlier in the week we heard Mumford & Sons cover Alt-J's "Tessellate" in a Radio One Live Lounge special. Today they held another special show for the arena veterans that are Muse. You know, that band who are about to release their sixth studio album, The 2nd Law, on Monday October 1st. We got to hear the album in full earlier on in the week and as we mentioned it's more than a little to take in. It jumps from genre to genre with each track yet we've kind of come to expect that from the three piece in recent years. In the live lounge today they played some new tracks and old and also offered up a cover that they've played numerous times live in recent weeks. It was Prince's "Sign ☮ the Times" from his 1987 album of the same name. Big guitar lines and a soaring vocals from Matt. See what you make of it below.
Muse also performed on Jools Holland earlier in the week with the full show set to be broadcast this evening. You can watch them perform "Panic Station" and "Madness" over here in the mean time though.
