Playing of the tracks started mid with " Glorious ". Matt Bellamy wrote five songs after he travelled to Kingdom of Bhutan and the Himalayas earlier in "I was in Bhutan, I wanted to get away from everything - no phone, no tv, nothing. I went checking out the monks, hiking up mountains It was really good for clearing my mind of any distractions, I got five new songs written while I was out there, though that isn't why I went.
Bellamy approached Costey in regards to producing their next album during the Absolution tour. Costey followed this up by contacting Bellamy a few months prior to starting the album. The album was written partly before the Absolution Tour, partly during said tour and finished during their time at Miraval StudioAvatar and Electric Lady Studios. As with Absolutionthe time frame was not as large a concern as on the former two albums, hence Muse Assassin - Muse - Black Holes And Revelations (CD their time over recording the album.
The freedom also extended into the style of the music they wrote, delving into areas that Muse considered might be risky for other bands,  Bellamy also said in the same interview: "We've got to a point where we're pretty much free to do whatever we like.
It was difficult because we wanted every song to be different to what we've done before. I think we've managed to do that. With the range we've shown on previous albums, I think we've got Assassin - Muse - Black Holes And Revelations (CD freedom to go into areas other bands would consider risky.
Previously, we consciously thought about which songs would work live but this time we just went for it. We'll worry about how to play them live later". Muse previously had written songs with their ability to play them live in mind, the band did not concern themselves with this ability whilst recording Black Holes and Revelations.
In Septemberduring the band's time at Miraval, the album was hindered by the band's fear of bats and ghosts, Album), as well as the owner who purportedly Album) want Muse there, Matt: "The studio was set next to a vineyard and was full of ghosts. The owner was this moody old geezer who didn't seem to want us there and kept interrupting us when we were writing the album" and Chris added: "There were so many bats flying around the rehearsal room while we were trying to work"  Only two songs were recorded during Muse's time at Miraval, namely "Take a Bow" and " Invincible ", although around 20 songs had been written.
Sixteen other songs have yet to surface, none of which were released on The Resistance or The 2nd Law. To an extent, this can be considered Muse's "lost album". Matthew Bellamy claimed that had the entire recording process been carried out at Miraval, it would have turned out akin to Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon. As well as recording in New York, Muse partook in the lifestyle of the city, which Dominic Howard claims influenced the style and direction of the album, particularly " Supermassive Black Hole ".
The track list of Black Holes and Revelations was finalised by April and the final track titles were decided by May. Inspiration for the album was taken from a wide variety of other artists, from contemporary acts such as Lightning Bolt  and Rage Against The Machine to composer Ennio Morricone  and jazz singer Nina Simone.
They had also been inspired by Belgian bands such as Millionaire and Evil Superstars. Bellamy had been living in North Italy for a while and had discovered some old Italian traditional folk songs, Matt explained: "The reason why the trumpets and some of the other stranger instrumentations came in is we didn't hold back in terms of taking a fringe idea to its full extent," describing the resulting sound as 'filmlike'.
From living in northern Italy, I became interested in southern Italian music and music from the South of Spain, like flamenco guitar," says Bellamy. Chris commented that the band listened to Islamic radio stations whilst writing the album and the progressive elements of that music influenced songs such as " Assassin ".
The album art was created by Storm Thorgersonit features the four Horsemen of the Apocalypse from the Book of Revelation.
