U2: So, Exactly Where are They With the Next Album?
U2 was hoping to release their next album this past December, but they're still working on it.
The Edge says, "We really want the songs to be right. That's the only reason why we're not on tour -- because we're so good at starting, not so good at finishing. That's always the way it's been." He goes onto say they have upwards of 30 songs they are "excited about" that are "in various states of being finished... Six or seven are mixed and ready to go." As for an album title, he says, "Not yet. We have a few. That's the problem."
U2 is hoping to have it out this summer.
