Tired of reading my blogs on Chris Martin/Coldplay. Oh, don’t worry. 2009 is all about U2. We got in the U2 mood this weekend by watching the 1988 “Rockumentary” called “Rattle & Hum.” It was pretty much awesome.
Bono on their new album– now due in early 2009:
“We’ve hit a rich songwriting vein. It gets a bit dark down here but looks like we’ve found diamonds not coal. I thought a while back we might have the album wrapped by now, but why come up above ground now if there’s more priceless stuff to be found? … I’m always the one who underestimates how easy it is to simply ‘put out the songs now.’ If it was just up to me they’d be out already! But early next year people will be able to start hearing what we’ve been doing. We want 2009 to be our year, so we’re going to start making an impression very early on.”
Apparently, the band has up to 40 tracks they’ve recorded…not all of which (obviously) will make the new album.
U2’s legendary producer, Steve Lillywhite, claims the band’s eagerly-awaited new album will be their BEST ever.
