Muse Say Next Album Will Be 'Rawer'

11/25/2013
.
(Radio.com) Muse is ready to get back to basics on the band's upcoming seventh studio album, tentatively slated for release in early 2015. During an interview with Radio.com last week, Muse frontman Matt Bellamy was forthcoming when asked about the follow-up to 2012′s The 2nd Law, the GRAMMY-nominated LP that boasted hits like "Madness" and "Panic Station."

The 2nd Law generated some early controversy with the release of the Skrillex-inspired track "Unsustainable," and the more overt electronic elements found throughout.

"The last two albums, we sort of veered away from our instruments a little bit," Bellamy said in reference to The 2nd Law and its predecessor, 2009′s The Resistance. "We sort of focused on things like synthesizers, drum machines and various electronics and stuff. I kind of feel like on this next album, we're going to veer back towards musicianship again and focusing on our own instruments: guitar, bass and drums. It's probably going to be a bit of a rawer album, and definitely a bit more rock, I'd say."

While the band has a clear vision of what they plan to do sonically on the next release, what's not so clear is how the new music will be released, with The 2nd Law being the group's last contracted album with Warner Music Group.

"It's a bit early to say," Bellamy offered. "The main focus is we're gonna record a bunch of music, probably a conceptual album of some kind, so it probably will be album length. But how we release it is up for debate.

"The industry is moving so fast, you don't really know," Bellamy added. "I don't think we'll be ready to put another album out until early 2015 or something, and I think around that time we'll just look at what's going on and make a judgement in the moment rather than thinking ahead, because things are changing so quickly."
