U2 are plotting a return to the studio this summer to work on the follow-up to 2004's "How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb."
Working on social matter approvingly doesn't draw Bono back from music industry. The lead singer of Irish rock band U2 revealed in an interview conducted last week with the U.K's Guardian newspaper that he has been writing a number of songs geared for the next disc.
He said "I've got a lot of songs, oddly enough, from taking piano lessons. My kid's piano teacher, Dawn, has been teaching me the piano. And every time she gives me a lesson, I write a new song. So next week, when (the band and I) meet up, I have all these songs to play for them. So I'd like to thin out my schedule in terms of the politics and activism and just get lost in the music again - that's what I'm really looking forward to for the summer."
Further details on the new album have yet been revealed nor do the release date of it.
