NEXT MUSE ALBUM MORE LIKELY TO ARRIVE IN 2013
Following his apparently drunken rant backstage at the NME Awards in London, a now more sober Matt Bellamy from Muse has said that the British trio will definitely release a new album by 2013 at the latest. Speaking with England's BBC 6 Music, the singer and guitarist said the band plans to record in London itself for the first time, explaining, "We've actually never made a full album here, it'll be nice to all be based in the same place, we can go out and socialize. It also means we can make the album over a longer period of time without having to pressurize it into a three week studio session."
As for the release date, Bellamy said, "I'd like 2012 if possible but 2013 definitely." The band's last studio effort, The Resistance, arrived in fall 2009.
The band will probably start work on its sixth album after returning home from a South American tour.
Bellamy, who is expecting his first child with girlfriend Kate Hudson, recently joked to MTV that he'll "definitely get a lullaby on" the new disc.
Muse won a Grammy for Best Rock Album last month, as well as an NME Award for Best Band and one for Bellamy himself for Hottest Man.
