In other Muse news, frontman Matt Bellamy’s new solo album, Cryosleep, is set to release on Record Store Day (16 July) and will features songs recorded using Jeff Buckley’s Fender Telecaster.
Last year, Bellamy revealed how he acquired the guitar, and how it could possibly inspire vintage-minded instruments from Manson Guitars. He told Guitar.com: “We’ve been discussing doing a retro-style or retro-sounding Manson [guitar]. We may actually base some of it on the Jeff Buckley guitar.”
Buckley’s treasured blonde Telecaster was first loaned to him by photographer friend Janine Nichols – after a robbery at the late musician’s Los Angeles apartment left all his valuables stolen. Buckley wielded the Tele throughout his career, from his early gigging days at the East Village coffeehouse, to the recording of 1994’s Grace, to his untimely passing. After his death, Buckley’s family returned the guitar to Nichols, who sold it in New York.
Cryosleep arrives on 16 July 2021 as part of Record Store Day.
