Alfred Music Publishing Releases Piano/Vocal Songbook: Muse, The Resistance

LOS ANGELES, CA  -  Thursday, April 29, 2010
Alfred Music Publishing, the leader in educational music publishing since 1922 and the exclusive print publisher of thousands of popular artists, is excited to release the album-matching songbook of Muse’s 2009 worldwide chart topping-album, The Resistance, specifically arranged for piano and voice.

Whereas songbook editions of previous Muse albums focused primarily on guitar transcriptions, many of the 11 songs on Muse’s fifth studio release, The Resistance, are exceptionally playable on piano and keyboards, due to the album’s heavy use of acoustic piano and synths in its unique blend of classical, progressive rock, hard rock, and electronic styles. The songbook’s sheet music transcriptions accurately capture the album’s outstanding keyboard parts, along with vocalist Matt Bellamy’s profound lyrics, catchy melodies, and unique symphonic arrangements that have led Muse to become one of the most successful current alternative rock bands. Geared for piano performance, the folio is arranged in standard music notation with basic guitar chord frames included. An authentic, note-for-note guitar TAB edition is also available, sold separately.

Muse, The Resistance, is now available for $19.99.
