U2 have stepped forward making an announcement that their twelfth major studio album will be dropped worldwide on March 2, 2009. Posting a message on their official website, the musicians wrote the upcoming album "No Line on the Horizon" was recorded in various locations, from their studio in U.K. to the warehouse in the Big Apple.
"Sessions for 'No Line on the Horizon' began last year in Fez, Morocco, continued in the band's own studio in Dublin," so they explained. "Before moving to New York's Platinum Sound Recording Studios, and finally being completed at Olympic Studios in London."
"No Line on the Horizon" is a follow-up to U2's 2004 studio effort "How to Dismantle An Atomic Bomb", which sold almost 9 million copies to date. The forthcoming record calls on the production talents of long-time collaborators Brian Eno and Danny Lanois, with additional production by Steve Lillywhite.
