Muse have tweeted photos from inside their LA studio as they record the brass and string sections for their new album.

The album, the follow-up to 2009’s ‘The Resistance’, is scheduled for release in October 2012 and will be the Devonshire trio’s sixth studio LP.

Writing on their official Twitter page, the band said they had just recorded some horns with “legendary players”. They added:

Now some strings. This album is coming along nicely. Bring on the Autumn!


Muse videographer, Tom Kirk also posted pictures from the LA sessions on his personal Twitter account.

One photo is of Matt Bellamy working out an orchestral score with composer David Campbell, who has previously worked with Radiohead on ’15 Steps’ and U2‘s Broadway musical Spiderman: Turn Off The Dark.

Muse bassist Chris Wolstenholme has previously said that the band want to do “something radically different” on their new album.
