Muse has announced their new album to be titled Drones through their Instagram account. In a 10 second video a blue and black screen appear with the text Artist: Muse. Album: Drones. It should be noted that a spokesperson for Muse declined the opportunity to confirm the album title according to the NME.
Matt Bellamy have previously stated that the album will be more rock oriented: "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."
