Muse Announces Robert "Mutt" Lange as the Producer of the 7th Album


On Muse's official Instagram account (October 23rd), the band announced they are currently working on the production of LP7 with Robert John “Mutt” Lange, writing: “We are honoured to be making our new album with this legendary producer. #backinblack”, alongside a picture with the members of AC/DC and the legend himself.

Arena rock producer, Robert, worked with AC/DC on the likes of Back in Black, Highway to Hell and For Those About to Rock. Whilst commonly mentioned in the same breath as this band, he has also worked with Def Leppard (where he helped them break into the American market), Foreigner and Bryan Adams, as well as countless pop acts such as Lady Gaga, Shania Twain and Britney Spears.

Muse have not used a producer for their last two albums (The Resistance and The 2nd Law), instead choosing to self-produce - a decision that has proved controversial with the fan community.

The album is scheduled to arrive in summer 2015 - exciting times!

More infos about the new album

Fans in Vancouver met the band (October 17th) and talked with the guys about the recording process. According to those in the know, the band are planning to take a short break in the recording process (after two weeks working non-stop) and come back to Vancouver in November to polish things off. On Instagram, they shared a picture with the caption "End of first session. It's been emotional".

According to fans that have met the band, Matt has said there will be "heavy riffs", which he likens to the sounds of Absolution and Black Holes & Revelations.

A few months ago, Matt talked about the influences of the new album on twitter, saying that it'll be "heavy" and would have a sequel to the song Citizen Erased from Origin of Symmetry (though take this with a pinch of salt!).

It appears that the band are also producing a "making of", as per previous albums.

The boys chose Vancouver as their recording location for "a change", and because the studio (The Warehouse Studios) has a very good reputation and mixer.

The album is scheduled to arrive in Summer 2015.
