Muse promises more one-off singles ahead of next album

Credit: Danny ClinchLast week, Muse premiered a new track called “Dig Down,” and while the British rockers won’t be releasing a full album in the near future, frontman Matt Bellamy promises that the band plans to continue sharing one-off singles.

“The good thing is we’re gonna put out songs like ‘Dig Down’ ahead of the album,” Bellamy tells the U.K.’s Radio X. “We’re going to put out at least another three songs…or even more ahead of the next album coming out.

“People are going to see into the creative process as we’re writing and recording the songs, and we’re going to put them out quite soon after,” he adds.

Bellamy estimates that the next Muse album will arrive sometime in 2018. “Even though the overall album will be a long wait, some of the songs are going to be available way ahead of that,” he says.

In less happy Muse news, Canada’s Pemberton Music Festival, which the band was scheduled to headline, has been cancelled, as the event has declared for bankruptcy. For more info, visit PembertonMusicFestival.com.

Muse is currently on a North American tour alongside Thirty Seconds to Mars.
