UK space rockers Muse have confirmed that they are working with producer Robert ‘Mutt’ Lange on their new album.

The band made the announcement via their Instagram account, posting a picture of Lange with AC/DC. Lange famously produced AC/DC’s classic album, Back In Black. The caption with the photo read: “We are honoured to be making our new album with this legendary producer. #backinblack”

Lange has also filled the producer’s chair for albums with his ex-wife Shania Twain, The Boomtown Rats, Foreigner and Sheffield rock stalwarts Def Leppard.

Muse are working on their seventh studio album, tentatively scheduled for release during 2015.

Speaking about the new album, Muse man Matt Bellamy said: “I have this strong feeling that the next album should be something that really does strip away the additional things that we’ve experimented with on the last two albums, which is electronics, symphonics and orchestral work and all that kind of stuff.”
