Matt Bellamy Says He Wants To Make Hip-Hop

Muse won ‘The Best Act in the World’ award at the Stubhub Q Awards last night and spoke to Q magazine afterwards about virtual reality tours, making a hip-hop album and crying over We Will Rock You.

Matt expressed his interest in taking the band in a new direction next year, claiming he wants to rap on their next album and potentially one day make an entire hip-hop record.

He went on to say they are keen to implement an augmented reality element in their next tour. Muse have used drones in the past but are now looking for something new. They would like the crowd to put their phones to good use while watching them, in a similar style to Pokemon Go.

Finally, when quizzed over the potential for a Muse musical Matt brushed off the idea but did admit to seeing Queen’s We Will Rock You seven times and shedding a tear more than once.

Matt on watching We Will Rock You… I saw the Queen one about seven times and loved it. Kept on going back. It’s emotional. I shed a couple of tears, a couple of times.

Matt on rapping on their next album… I really wanna try and just make like a hip‑hop album. I think I’m gonna actually, starting rapping on our next eighth studio album.

Matt on virtual reality tours… We were just talking about augmented reality. Like Pokemon vibes, using phones because you go to a concert now and everyone’s got a phone and is filming and is taking pictures. Utilising that would be a cool thing.
