Bono Reveals More Info on New U2 Album

Rebel Yell

Recommended Posts

Bono on the music the band have been writing since visiting Morocco earlier this year:

"World music this is not," he says, though U2 fans will "feel the difference". Polyrhythmic is the word he chooses with a self-deprecating laugh. "U2 in dancefloor shock. Normally when you play a U2 tune, it clears the dancefloor. And that may not be true of this. There's some trance influences. But there's some very hardcore guitar coming out of The Edge. Real molten metal. It's not like anything we've ever done before, and we don't think it sounds like anything anyone else has done either."

He hopes to have a new U2 album out next year. "We have enough material for two albums but it has to be extraordinary. And I think we've got that."

I dont like the sound of this... trance influences?

Hard core guitar from edge: GOOD.

Trance influence: BAD.

Hopefully this one wont be a stinker.

They're recording with Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois. I don't think it's physically possible for this album to suck. :mellow:
