As far as I recall, Timbaland has been busy doing stuff for the TV show Empire. I liked the first series of it then couldn't get into season 2 so hadn't been looking out to see if it was still going on.

I'm already a little wary as to the mix of producers, given this'll be the 3rd one involved after the ones at the desk for the first 2 singles. There's a difference in sound clarity between Dig Down and Thought Contagion, as the latter has a bit of a muddier mix, and I do wonder if this could lead to the upcoming album being even more over the place than it would've been if it was just same producer and different genres.

If we're just talking about different productions, yes. About the sound, it might actually be less so. In DD and TC you can make out some similar elements in both if their arrangements, like the electronic drums and the synth parts that gives them a vague hip hop flavour in some points.

Anyway, the fact they'll be working with Timbaland has been quite of a shocking news for me to read. I thought I'd never see "Muse" and "Timbaland" put together in the same sentence, and I don't know what to make of this...
It could be genius, it could be a complete dogs**t. We'll see. The idea of them experimenting with hip hop intrigues me, though.

Now we just need a collaboration with Kylie Minogue and the album is complete. All the hip kids will love it.

I knew they'd go the hip-hop route eventually. Honestly interested to hear what comes of this if they really go for it. Not saying I'll probably love it, unless Matt has some stroke of genius with how to make hip-hop infused rock that no one's ever heard before and that's still good. But like, I don't begrudge them this experiment no matter how it turns out. This has been coming for a while.

Also if Matt raps, my money is on it being trash, but we'll see I guess, lol.

I love hip hop, but I can't see Muse doing it well. Once, maybe, definitely not now.

It's gonna be as bad as that Arctic Monkeys cover of Hold On, We're Going Home. R&B and Hip Hop are areas most guitar bands should stay as far away from as possible

As a massive Chris Cornell fan, Timbaland is a bit of a trigger word for me.

I do agree that some synthy sounds are similar for both Dig Down and Thought Contagion, but there's a production feeling in the latter more reminiscent of the production on Absolution and Black Holes, which is somewhat faithful given Rich Costey's involvement in those LP's.

There's been hip-hop elements in some previous tracks like Madness or UD (although there's an argument that some of those sounds are in Supermassive Black Hole, not least given the band talked up a Kanye West influence at the time). But a full-on hip-hop-rock track is an interesting challenge, assuming it makes the cut.

There's some really good pop and hip hop music out there, the same as there's some really crap rock music out there.
It's nothing to do with the genre, and everything to do with the artist being able to pull it off.

Since I've started to be really concerned about Muse's ability to do that even in their normal genres (especially if they consider TC to be a "more traditional" track) I'm not terribly confident they can pull off the others.

And I just feel like the band's aesthetic right now... they've moved on from quirky rock band, to something that went way too far down the road into overblown.
imo, no matter what they try and get into, as far as the mainstream goes, Matt's just going to come off as a bit of a poser, like someone's old dad desperately trying to be cool.
At least if they don't shake this attitude of taking everything as a laugh, while still managing to be incredibly un - self-aware.
Are they just going to flounce into these genres without actually taking them seriously?

The problem isn't them trying different genres, it's them doing so while just acting like obnoxious tourists.

Matt has just become completely tasteless in his songwriting.

Oh wow, somehow I never heard any of that stuff or I managed to completely block it out. Just had a listen and it sounds exactly like what I expected. And so dated. Outdated.
