“I’ve written some good tracks actually,” Bellamy told Triple J. “We haven’t had a chance to rehearse them out yet. We’ll take a break next year for a little few months and then we’ll get in the studio. If it all goes very well, the new album could well be early 2015 or late 2015. Christmas 2014 might be when we release our next single.”
Muse’s dubstep-tinged LP ‘The 2nd Law‘ arrived in September 2012, and Bellamy has previously spoken of his desire to return to a more basic rock sound on any new record.
“The last two albums, we sort of veered away from our instruments a little bit,” he said while in conversation with Radio.com.
“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.”
