U2 may take the new album slowly, but they make sure it's gonna be a real good record.
Anticipation running up and down over U2's new album has reached a new progress. Speaking on behalf of the band, The Edge hinted that they are working on several more songs and that great stuffs are coming in the way.
"We're working on new songs and getting lost in the music. I don't think we're going to try and think too much about what we're going to do with it yet, we're just going to do a lot of writing and just see what gives. We're giving ourselves the luxury of just working on the songs," said Edge as quoted by Rolling Stone. It was previously reported that the band was going to work on the old songs that didn't make it to "How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb" (2004).
Helmed by Rick Rubin, this project is said to be a little bit different from the usual U2 sound. In December 2006 issue of Q magazine, Edge has revealed that the record is "A new found appreciation for pure melody. That seems to be what we're all interested in at the moment."
