More Details About U2 Album Emerge
Earlier in January, U2 frontman Bono revealed the potential title for the band’s follow-up to 2009’s No Line on the Horizon. At the time, the wraparound glasses-wearing singer mentioned its working title is 10 Reasons to Exist, and it seems that this title is now official.
In going on to The Sun recently about the album, Bono mentioned the band has been recording for the past few months. He went onto say: "U2 have been back and they're really in fine fettle. They're mad for it at the moment and they really want to make a new record.
"And they don't care if it takes ten years - they don't care if it never happens again, they just want to get it right."
The sentiment of taking long enough to make a high-quality release was echoed before. Apparently, U2 put together another release a couple of years earlier – also a follow-up to No Line on the Horizon – but, after not being pleased with the outcome, shelved the project.
Similarly, as Bono mentioned, the release will not come out right away. Although, as we mentioned earlier in January 2013, Mercury Records seems to have the release scheduled for some time in 2013. As far as producers are concerned, Danger Mouse has been attached to the album, according to a secondary source.
What’s your take on U2’s approach? Should they get out something to stay relevant, or is taking their time – even if that ends up being 10 years or “never” – worth it?
