Matt Bellamy - Muse album will be stripped back

Muse will ''strip back'' the tracks on their next album.

Frontman Matt Bellamy said he wants to ''reconnect'' with the oldest elements of the band and that he is keen to experiment less on the new songs.

He told Rolling Stone magazine: ''I've got a pretty good picture of what I'd like the next album to be like.

''It's the comedown and the sort of waking up the next day being like, 'What the f**k? What the f**k?' That was crazy'.

''I kind of feel like it will be nice to reconnect and remind ourselves of just the basics of who we are.''

Speaking about the sound of the album, the 35-year-old musician continued: ''I have this strong feeling that the next album should be something that really does strip away the additional things that we've experimented with on the last two albums, which is electronics, symphonics and orchestral work and all that kind of stuff.''

Next year marks the 20th anniversary of Muse and Matt, along with band mates Christopher Wolstenholme and Dominic Howard, say they've come a long way.

Matt added: ''In some ways, the band has gone on this pretty insane journey since we formed as teenagers. Back then, we weren't very outgoing on stage. We were very sort of off to ourselves, hiding behind the music.''

Earlier this week the band released the concert film 'Muse - Live At Rome Olympic Stadium' on DVD.
