Muse to Start Recording New Album After Coachella
Muse just wrapped up their Coachella appearance, where they performed a Nirvana cover, but to follow up on statements from last year regarding a new album, they plan to go into the recording studio by May.
Dominic Howard gave an interview with California radio station KROQ to talk about progress. About the album’s status, he said: "We're going to go back in May and start working on some new stuff, so I think we'll start recording it this year. If we can get something out this year, that would be great, but definitely next year."
This follows statements made by Matt Bellamy at the end of December 2013. Bellamy spoke about Muse writing new material and about taking a “back to basics” approach – one that goes back to their roots, instead of continuing with the electronic and orchestral textures of 2012’s The 2nd Law.
Bellamy, as well, revealed how they plan to approach their seventh album. After writing everything, the group plans to take a break for a few months, and then reconvene to record. That looks to by what’s starting to transpire.
The 2nd Law was Muse’s highest-charting album in the U.S. so far, peaking at No. 2 on the Billboard 200. However, its predecessor, even with a lower chart rank, sold more copies its first week.
