Muse confirmed ‘Drones’ as the title of their forthcoming album with a series of creepy pictures on Instagram earlier this month. The band’s seventh studio album is due to be released at some point this year. The band, who are among the favourites to headline Glastonbury in 2015, are recording the follow-up to ‘The 2nd Law’, released in 2012, with AC/DC producer Mutt Lange.

Speaking about their plans for the new album, Matt Bellamy added: “I have this strong feeling that the next album should be something that really does strip away the additional things that we’ve experimented with on the last two albums, which is electronics, symphonics and orchestral work and all that kind of stuff.”

More recently, Bellamy has hinted at some of the themes and sounds set to appear on the band’s forthcoming album.

Answering fan questions on Twitter in September, Bellamy said that he might have to contradict comments he made about guitar solos in the past while also stating that the themes of the new material include “Deep ecology, the empathy gap and World War 3”. Additionally, it was suggested that a “sequel” to ‘Origin Of Symmetry’ song ‘Citizen Erased’ could feature on the album.
