Muse are hoping to head in a completely new direction on their forthcoming new album, though the band’s bass player Chris Wolstenholme has admitted those plans could be quickly forgotten during the course of their time in the studio.
“We feel like we are drawing a line under a certain period of what we’ve done in our career,” Wolstenholme told Kerrang. “It feels like it’s time to move on and do something radically different.”
“But then you could get into the studio and go back to what you’re comfortable with. You get in the studio and there’s a natural process and you have to see where a song will take you.”
According to reports, Muse began recording their new album last September, and are said to be aiming for a release some time in the second half of next year. It will be the follow up to the band’s 2009 fifth studio album ‘The Resistance‘.
