Muse going big with new album sound
Progressive-edged modern rock overlords Muse are currently in the studio recording their sixth album, and like all Muse albums, this one appears to be even more bombastic and supercharged than its predecessors.
Over the weekend the band announced via Twitter that it was working with both a horn section and a string section on the new material. On Saturday they posted a photo from the studio with the message: "The amazing brass from last night. More horns today," following it up with, "Just done some more horns with some legendary players." The next day they added, "Now some strings. This album is coming along nicely. Bring on autumn."
