Matt Bellamy and Dominic Howard stopped by The Kevin & Bean Show to talk about the new song and the band’s upcoming plans.

“We’re going to try and go single, single, single, single, album if we can, but we’ll see,” Bellamy said. “We’ve got another 4 or 5 in the bag now, well more than that, maybe 7 or 8.”

Asked if the band was ultimately working toward a new album, or if they just record songs as they are written, Bellamy responded, “We found ourselves in the mode, haven’t we, the last 2 or 3 weeks. Last year was patchy because we had a bunch of shows, we did like 35 shows or something. And so we did that “Dig Down” song. Then we started recording a couple of tracks September/October time and then we sort of got a bit lazy and went ‘yeah, whatever’ because Merry Christmas/New Year. But a new year hit and all of a sudden we’re inspired to work. We’ve been to the studio every day for the last two weeks.”

Howard chimed in, “We started last year in Malibu and now finishing off a batch of songs in Santa Monica, but we’re close.”

About the new track “Thought Contagion,” Bellamy said: “I think “Dig Down” was the last gasp of hope. This one’s more on the dark side, let’s say. There’s actually a track on the album called “The Dark Side,” which is one of our favorite tracks actually. We’re just working on that at the moment.”
