MUSE release a brand new double A-side single this summer, and also hope to finish their third album this year, NME.COM can reveal.

Speaking exclusively to NME.COM, singer Matt Bellamy said that the group had started recording demos for the follow-up to their 'Origin Of Symmetry' album, and will release a brand new, double A-side single, 'Dead Star' / 'In Your World' on June 3. Both tracks are taken from a new DVD, 'Hullabaloo', which follows on June 17.

'Hullabaloo' is a double DVD release with one disc featuring 18 live songs from their 2001 tour, recorded over two nights at the Paris Zenith, and the second containing documentary footage from a number of dates across the world.

Bellamy said: "We did a concert in Paris which we recorded for a DVD. One (disc) is the concert and the other is loads of us getting up to weird antics backstage and all sorts of weird fucked-up shit on tour. That DVD is going to have a backing track of some music we did, some B-sides and some other music."

Bellamy told NME.COM that the single 'Dead Star' is "really fucking heavy rock", but isn't necessarily an indicator of their direction for a third album.

Speaking about the group's future plans, he continued: "I'm writing new songs, hopefully we'll record an album this year and get it out for early next year. We've got a new single coming which is really fucking heavy rock, really hard. Apart from that our new stuff is all over the place. But we won't finalise all the tracklisting and stuff until early next year."
