As has been the case with a number of new releases this year, the sixth studio album by British alternative rock group Muse, is now streaming online one full week before its scheduled drop date.

Matthew Bellamy and crew had various music sites and blog message boards buzzing earlier this summer following the release of a promotional trailer for their forthcoming LP entitled The 2nd Law, which featured a new dubstep-influenced track called “Unsustainable.” While some chose to openly chastise the band’s experimental decision, others vowed to hear more before passing judgement. This early stream will give fans that opportunity to digest “Unsustainable” in context along with the rest of the album as a full body of work.
