New U2 Album Revealed
Irish rocker Bono has revealed the working title of U2's new album. The band have been recording ‘10 Reasons To Exist’, their 13th studio album, for the past few months.
"Within the band we've been calling it ‘10 Reasons To Exist’ - but I will tell you we might have at least six of them (album names)," Bono told The Sun recently. He added, bizarrely referring to his band in the third person, "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."
U2’s last release was ‘No Line On The Horizon’ which reached number 1 in the UK chart back in 2009. Although the album made it to the top of the charts, there weren’t as many successful single releases, something that didn’t go unnoticed by Bono. In an interview last year the frontman said that although they were having a productive streak in the studio, they needed to produce “something very special” on their next LP in order to survive.
The group have been working with acclaimed producer Danger Mouse according to U2 insider Gavin Friday who commented, "I've heard a bit, Danger Mouse is producing it, so it's quite different."
The highly anticipated new album is due out later this year.
