U2 To Release Another New Album In 2009

Post by Sykesy on Mon Mar 02, 2009 2:21 pm

U2 have revealed that they are planning to release another new album before 2009 is over.

The band described the album as a "companion" to new effort "No Line On The Horizon", released today (March 2), and that it will be more meditative than their latest effort.

The band added that they would not be considering breaking from the traditional cycle of record releases in the style of Radiohead.

"My instinct is to stick with the record guys," guitarist The Edge told the New York Times. "They have to sell your records or sell the downloads, whatever it ends up being.

"To do that, first of all you've got to love and understand the music, and right now I'm not seeing any group that rivals the record labels on that front."

Frontman Bono added: "I'm interested in commerce. The excuse for bigness is that songs demand to be heard if they're any good. And without the kind of momentum of being in a big rock 'n roll band, you won't get your songs heard."
