Dave Mustaine Has Over Half The Songs For New Megadeth Album

Megadeth

(hennemusic) Megadeth leader Dave Mustaine is sharing an update on recording sessions for the band's sixteenth album. The veteran thrash outfit began work on the follow-up to 2016's "Dystopia" last November, when the guitarist streamed some video footage from the first series of sessions for the project.

"Whenever I've been home, I've been working on new music from 10 in the morning to seven at night," Mustaine tells Music Radar while on the road as part of the 2019 Experience Hendrix tour. "My co-producer Chris Rakestraw from the Dystopia team has been helping with pre-production on songs. I have about eight songs and there's one which is just unanimously everyone's favourite, which is great... I'm not saying there's only one good song so far though, haha! Let's just say whenever I have that first song everyone gets excited about, I know I'm on my way to another great record...

"We're going to do 12 or 13 tracks this time. My contract says I'm only supposed to do eight songs a record and I just can't do that - it feels like cheating. When I grew up listening to vinyl, it was a lot easier to buy a record and be happy with 45 minutes of music When the digital world came, the paradigm changed - a musical offering needs a lot more. People aren't satisfied and hit fast-forward a lot. So right now, we know we're off to a good start; this new material is only going to get better and better." Read more here.
