Muse Bring Out The Brass Section

Muse have stated that they intend to use a horn section on their next album. Currently recording their sixth studio album in Los Angeles, the band posted photos of "some legendary players" on their Twitter account.

On Twitter over the weekend they let fans know about "The amazing brass from last night. More horns today" and later posted "just done some more horns with some legendary players".

Come Sunday and the message was:

"Now some strings. This album is coming along nicely. Bring on autumn."

Having a horn section fits with what's been heard so far of Muse's latest material. In December Chris Wolstenholme said the album would be "something radically different".

The band has been working hard on the record with arranger, composer and conductor David Campbell, who has previously worked on Death Magnetic for Metallica, These Days for Bon Jovi and Fallen for Evanescence. The new album should be set for release in/by October of this year.
