Muse’s Matt Bellamy Says “It’s Difficult for Me to Pinpoint” “Drones” Songs About Breakup with Kate Hudson

Credit: Danny ClinchMuse frontman Matt Bellamy has described the band's Drones single "Dead Inside" as a song about "a relationship ending and a person becoming dead inside themselves." Given that Bellamy recently split with his fiancee of three years, actress Kate Hudson, you might assume that "Dead Inside" is describing that relationship. However, Bellamy doesn't think that's necessarily true.

"We had a great relationship, she's a lovely person, we're better off as friends," Bellamy tells NME of Hudson. "It's difficult for me to pinpoint anything on the album specifically about [the break-up]."

However, Bellamy does say that the breakup did affect Drones.

"When someone suddenly finds themselves outside of a relationship, they ponder things, they think over the points in their lives when they think things didn't go the way they expected them to," he says. "It's the fact that I reconnected with all the points in my life where I felt alone or outside."

Bellamy adds that "feeling alone" has been a "dominant theme" in his life, and that long walks have been useful therapy.

"Definitely in the last few months I've been feeling much better," Bellamy says of his personal life. "Actually, I've been feeling really good."

Drones will be released on June 9.
