Muse frontman Matt Bellamy will feature on the new album by Kimbra.

The New Zealand born singer, perhaps best known for featuring on Gotye's 2011 single 'Somebody That I Used To Know', recorded with Bellamy ahead of the release of her second solo album, which is produced by Rich Costey.

Muse have worked extensively with Costey in the past and Faster Louder reports that Bellamy has recorded guitar parts for the album's lead single.

Other artists who are confirmed to appear on the album include Daniel Johns, Van Dyke Parks, Thundercat, Bilal, Mark Foster and John Legend. Kimbra is also reported to have worked with musicians including The Mars Volta, Queens Of The Stone Age, Dillinger Escape Plan, Dirty Projectors and Unknown Mortal Orchestra during the recording sessions.

Kimbra released her debut solo album 'Vows' in 2011. It featured the singles 'Settle Down' and 'Cameo Lover'. She will soon tour Australia with Janelle Monáe.

Muse have kicked off 2014 by signing a new deal with the management team behind Metallica, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Black Keys.

Matt Bellamy and co have been managed by Brontone founder Anthony Addis (outside of North America) for over a decade, but have now left to sign an international deal with Q Prime - who have managed the band in North America since they released Absolution in 2003.

"After a successful 12-year relationship, Muse will be parting company with Brontone, until now their manager for all territories outside North America," a Muse spokeperson told Music Week.

"As of March 2014 Muse will be managed worldwide by Q Prime, who have been managing the group in North America since 2003. Apart from Muse, Muse wish to thank Brontone for its support in developing the group’s hugely successful career so far, and Brontone wish Muse every success for the future."

The future looks interesting for the Devonshire trio. Not only is there a great deal of speculation around whether the band will act on rumours of them celebrating their 20th anniversary with an intimate tour in 2014, but last year the band revealed that they had 'no concrete plans' regarding what to do now that their six album record deal is up.

Warner Bros. Records bought Muse's six album deal from original label Taste Media in 2005 - meaning that The 2nd Law will be their last contracted record with them. Now in a new interview with Billboard, frontman Matt Bellamy said that the band were 'at a crossroads' and planned to take time off to think about where to go from here.

"Early next year I think we'll probably take a break for a few months and at some point next year we'll start writing new music," he said. "I think if everyone is up for it, we'll start recording music sometime next year."

Many believe that Muse are likely to release future music via their own record label, Helium-3. Helium-3 is a sub-division of Warner formed by the band before the release of Blackholes And Revelations.

The Wall Street Journal have published an interesting interview with Chris, detailing his fascination with music production.

I'd had small setups in the past but this was the first time I had built what I would call a "proper" studio.

The main aim was to have a great writing space but I also wanted the studio to have the capability of recording a full band if necessary. We had a small wine cellar for the control room and a triple garage for the live room. I'd always imagined that it would be fairly cramped, but in the end the studio was fairly spacious.

I used a company called Studio Creations, who were very thorough about the planning stage. They wanted to be sure that we were all on the same page before they started the build, so we had many meetings discussing technical requirements.

We spent a good few months ironing out the options before the building work even started. To be honest, the eventual build process was relatively painless. It took about six months and the guys were pretty invisible.

I had mainly worked with Pro Tools on my laptop and was relatively inexperienced with the technical side of things, but I got 24/7 technical support [from Studio Creations], which was essential.

I do most of my vocal stuff at home. Doing vocals is the most painful process of recording and it's great to be able to do it in the comfort of your own home.

I try not to get caught up in the technical side of stuff, and look at the studio as a creative tool.

The most important thing to me is having a great collection of microphones. Although I love vintage stuff, I didn't want to have too much of it in the studio as it has a tendency to go wrong.

I've been working with a band called Death at Sea. They are managed by our tour manager and I offered to record one song with them. They liked it so much that we are now making an album in between me being on tour. They are fantastic and I've really enjoyed working in the studio as a producer.

We have some exciting news for you today (well, it is for us at least ) - we've just launched our first Indiegogo campaign! If you're not familiar with Indiegogo, it's a great platform that helps entrepreneurs, inventors and content producers raise capital to help them bring projects through to fruition.

You've probably noticed that Muselive has been a bit rocky recently. Our news posts haven't been as frequent as we'd like, we've had far too much downtime and things have generally become a bit less lively.

We'd love to change that! This is where you come in. We have some fantastic projects lined up that we hope will change Muselive for the better. If you'd like to read more (and we really hope you do!), head over to our Indiegogo page, here, and select one of the perks.

Please let us know if you have any questions by posting in the comments - we'll answer everything we can!

Lots of love,
Tom, Lewis and Andrew xx
