New Album News

Recently, an Interferencer made the journey to Hanover Studio in Dublin and was lucky enough to speak with Adam Clayton about the new U2 studio album. Apparently, Adam relayed that the band were "nearly done," and that possibly only four songs are still needing final vocals and other various treatments...

This builds upon speculation that has been rampant among the U2 community as to when the new U2 studio album will make it's bow. Previous information we have gleaned from the press include Bono and Edge referring to the newie as a "guitar album" and that they have been inspired by the new garage rock phenomenon. Read into that what you will. Also of note in February was the revelation that U2 was working with a producer they have not used before for a "trial period."

Could things be finally coming together over there in merry Dublin? Stay tuned!


Yippeeee! I hope this is true and that we will get a new album by the end of the year. Oh, and a tour next summer. Wouldn't that be awesome!

Good stuff Lynne!

I think the producer could be Rick Rubin(Red Hot Chili Peppers, Johnny Cash, Beastie Boys, etc)...or quite possibly Nigel Godrich(Radiohead, Blur).

Still, history has proven that Eno & Lanois are still tops when it comes to producing U2. Anything those two have touched over the years for the band has literally turned into gold!!!!

I would love to hear what either Rubin or Godrich would do with U2's music, but I agree with you about Eno and Lanois.

Hey you!:)

Actually Godrich did do a bit of something for the band. He 'reworked' the "Walk On"(Single Mix) or whatever they call it on the '7' EP aka. the 'TARGET EP'. As for Rubin...he's been rumored to be doing something with the band and he could be the big secret they're trying to keep under wraps.

I also wouldn't be surprised if Butch Vig did something again for the group. As you know he did some remixes for "Staring at the Sun" on the 12 inch single.

if those are the same singles that came on the cd with the third track being north and south, then i want him to do more! i may be the wee minority, but i loved those remixes. they're so lushiously hard hitting.

Exactly right.

Butch remixed "Staring At the Sun"(Monster Truck Mix and Lab Rat Mix) with Danny Saber and John X under the moniker The Sonic Morticians in 1997 for the 12 inch single.

Oh, that explains why his name was so familiar. I like Radiohead a lot, but I don't pay any attention to who produces their work the way I pay attention to who produces U2. I have that EP, and I must have recognised Godrich's name from that. That's a pretty good mix.

Oh yeah...I'd like to see FLOOD back on the next album in some capacity. He was surprisingly absent from the ATYCLB sessions.
