Billboard reports that U2 is working on their follow-up to 2009’s No Line on the Horizon, due for an April 2014 release, which the band intends to announce during the Super Bowl. The album was recorded with producer Danger Mouse, and some of the sessions were recorded at Electric Lady in New York City.
Adam Clayton recently said in an Irish radio interview that the album is “a bit of a return to U2 of old, but with the maturity, if you like, of the U2 of the last 10 years.”
Does this mean they’ll go back to playing songs from Boy in concert? Probably shouldn’t hold our breath on that one.
