November 2017 at the earliest.

I think about March 2018 realistically

I've never heard that interpretation of Cave before. With one or two possible lyrical exceptions, I'm not really sure Muse have songs about sex tbh. But then I could be wrong or just could be interpreting them differently.

New album? 2017/18. Depends when the Drones Tour finishes, but likelier 2018.

And I just saw that last interview with Chris talking about taking a "much longer break" after this tour, so 2018 at the earliest, likely.

Agitated, maybe?
"You do it to me sweetly / To my yeah yeah".

EDIT: Or Muscle Museum, or Overdue, or Easily.

Easily is absolutely about sex.

Hysteria is more than likely super dirty.
Soaked is about casual sex and one night stands.
Overdue is about revenge cheating/sex.
I have my suspicions about Spiral Static.

Out of all of them, Cave is very unlikely to be about sex. At least directly. In the way you're thinking.

My interpretation of Hysteria has always been as much about obsession that drives you over to insanity, although there are some sexual connotations - not least given the history of the actual word. I swear once seeing on here that someone who went to the Liverpool Arena gig in 2009 overheard a girl saying to her friend something along the lines of "I hope they play Hysteria tonight as its me and my boyfriend's sex song." Not sure if I actually do remember that accurately though.

I knew Agitated's "do it to me sweetly" chorus was about it, and the verses might refer a bit too. Not that you can read too much into it, mind. Thinking about it, there maybe bits of it in Supermassive and TIRO, although I did say I saw sex stuff more in the odd lyric rather than the whole song. Overdue does have that vibe. I like Easily but that really had passed me by.

Matt has apparently said Spiral Static is "something about giving birth". Dunno what the fuck its about to me tbh, although I do like the instrumentals and vocal scale. Can't imagine him doing that song now though - probably a bit too vocally strange.

Hysteria has a sex session song? A bit... disturbing for my tastes. * shrugs *
SMBH and TIRO could definitely have some sexual undertones in their lyrics, but, I don't know, Muse has always been a rather "clean" band about it.

Cleaner than most, yeah. Alex Turner's definitely become a bit of a horny little git over the last few albums he's written.

Plug in Baby and Bliss could be too a little, although the former could really be about anything while the other seems to be about other stuff.

I remember a friend of the band saying Hysteria was about the female orgasm. Which the title supports, while the lyrics could be about any sort of obsession.
Stuff like TIRO are just songs about having conflicted feelings about a relationship, imo, and sex is just a part of that.

Spiral Static seemed pretty clearly about being covetous about a friend's girlfriend, to me. I had a friend who said that the ending sounded like it was meant to represent ejaculation, but he was sort of a gross fellow anyways, and he thought that about everything.
Easily is absolutely about a sexual encounter, and Overdue is actually TOO blunt about it's subject matter.

I don't even know the words to Agitated; I probably haven't listened to it (unless during a gig I was streaming) in a decade or more.

SMBH, like TIRO, is just about personal problems with relationships. I think Matt's description of it was probably 100% accurate (for once,) sadly.
PiB and SMBH, like Cave, are attributed with very literal, immature sexual meanings that probably are completely inaccurate (despite Matt's apparent sense of humor.)
Although, in the case of PiB, Dom did say once it was about Matt's wang.
It seems highly unlikely it's about anything other that Matt's guitar, but the original lyrics do have that "technology is evil" vibe.

Yeah, its been mentioned the word Hysteria has its origins as a female sex diagnosis. I guess it can be a general obsession tune and if you can see sex in it, then the ideas are there and fair. Tbh, I always saw more of a general love obsession.

I remember a gig in 2010 when Matt sang "You will fuck the life out of me" in TIRO, which probably broke the subtlety a bit. Same too with the original "since ovulation" misprint in some copies of Absolution. In a way though, both TIRO and SMBH was more fragments leaning towards sex than being a whole, and the general theme of the bad bits of relationships fits better for both.

I have absolutely no idea what I think Plug in Baby is about. Could cross all sorts of ideas, be it sex, love, drugs, technology, genetic engineering, a devotion to being a musician/playing guitar or maybe even artificial sex robots like in the video. Did Dom really once say Matt wrote it about his dick?

Maybe Spiral Static is about affairs or something, I dunno. Been ages since I heard it tbh, even if it was a favourite back when I was 17/18. Certainly, its not as unsubtle as Overdue.

I had others in mind - most of AM is about hook-ups or trying to get one, and so to some degree is a lot of stuff on the new Shadow Puppets LP. Though tbf, would you write a song comparing your penis to a propeller and you need help getting it up?

In fairness, Turner has said exactly that. And nothing he's written is as bad as "put my log in your fireplace", like Kiss once did.
