Muse Wants to Record Next Album in Space

Muse might be known for their synthy choruses, but until now, their signature sound has been created in a recording studio—on Earth.

But if the band’s frontman Matt Bellamy has his wishes come true, the group’s next record will contain otherwordly sounds that are actually from space.

In a recent interview with Contact Music, the singer says, “We’re trying to blag a free trip on it [Virgin Galactic]. I’m going to try to convince Richard Branson to let us make a music video or record a song up there. I think that would be cool. Would I be scared? I think I’ll be alright.”

After playing a show in Moscow, Bellamy, who has always held an interest in astronomy, received a telescope which sparked his newest beyond-earth venture, “The crowd in Moscow were probably the most intense we’ve ever had. They were going mental and they bought me a big telescope. It’s a big, real, serious piece. I set it up when I got home and looked at the moon. Fucking hell, have you ever looked at the moon through a telescope? It’s all mountains and stuff, it’s unbelievable.”

No word yet on when and if the top-grossing rockers will make their dream voyage.
