Muse reveals why 'Drones' is the best record they´ve done so far - Sopitas (English version)
In an interview with Sopitas in California before the launch of Drones, Matt Bellamy and Dominic Howard claimed it is the best album they have done in their career. Matt again described the new album as going back to their roots.
“In the last two albums we began experimenting a lot with technology and I noticed that something was happening: When we went up to play, there were 5 or 6 songs that were simple to play live without using technology… for this album I had to make sure all songs were ideal for a live experience and that’s what I meant when I said ‘gone back to basics’. It’s just Dom, Chris and I in a room, with our instruments, playing the songs without technology.”
Dominic Howard, on the other hand, gives us an important details about the identity of the album: “We knew we wanted to do an album, not just a lot of random singles or songs. All of the songs had to belong together”.
Regarding their gigs in Mexico in mid-November, Dom said that “Muse will do something we have never done before.”
Matt also said that Muse expect to announce more dates this year in South America soon, including Argentina, Chile and Brazil.
Drones will be released on June 9 and can be pre-ordered now via iTunes.
