An EP?

Why does everyone seem to expect an EP? Is it just because they have said they are only working on three songs right now, or something else I am unaware of?

I think in an interview a while back Matt had said he thought albums are becoming obsolete or something vaguely along those lines. It's been a while since I read that on here so I may be missing some parts of it

Well, it's not a full album and they've recorded more than one song.

So an EP or multiple singles are really the only options, assuming they all get released.

That's one of those things he's been saying for years tbf, and he already confirmed last year that they'd probs be doing another album in 2018.

It could be a single/b-side pair, or something along those lines. Like Prague and Popcorn recorded for Resistance's single. Where is the news of multiple songs though?

A fan said he was told at Air Studios there were three songs recorded, one "heavy" and two not.

However, everyone seems to be ignoring the fact that Matt captioned his video "new SONG coming." Singular.

Don't think people are necessarily ignoring that, just doesn't mean that's all we're getting. Like Kueller said, the other songs could be b-sides or other singles released later in the year.

yeah. one song in the immediate future seems about all we can realistically expect at this juncture.

though i'd like an EP (it seems they have been in the studio sufficiently long enough over the past few months to churn one out)...pigs get fat; hogs get slaughtered.

my current bet is that we get one song between now and LP8...and the song is met with a polarizing reception from the fans.

Then what happens with the other two? LP8's a way off yet dood.

Whilst I agree with the thinking that we'll see only a handful of songs at best, I still take what Matt says with a pinch of salt.

Wouldn't read too much into some throwaway comments made a while back etc.

Gotta keep those expectations in check.

I have extremely low expectations.

I mean, the benchmark is Dead Star / In Your World / Futurism.

I don't know, if they stray away from the kind of blatant (although functional to the narrative) lyrics seen in Drones and cut off a bit of cheese, they might pull out something great this time.

They might also produce something mediocre. I am excited about the new song but I don't expect anything in particular really.

historically, muse has done next do nothing in the way of releases of any kind in between the last few LPs.

NSC, popcorn (attached to a single), a cover or two...and...what else? have to look to the past as a reasonable prediction of the future...

And historically they haven't recorded in the inbetween years when a last tour is waiting (2005, 2008, 2011, 2014), so obviously this is a totally new scenario.
