"As regards Zoo TV, it's so logical for U2 to do this -- I don't think they understand exactly what they are doing and I like that. It takes guts."

Chris Blackwell Tweets About Hearing U2's New Album

@U2, May 27, 2013
By: Matt McGee

 

U2's new material sounds #betterthanever according to Island Records founder Chris Blackwell. He apparently got to hear at least some, if not all, of U2's new album late last week at Electric Lady Studios in New York City. (Blackwell referred to it as "electric lady land," but the studio's official name is Electric Lady Studios.) He ended his tweet with the hashtag #betterthanever.

After he tweeted, a number of fans retweeted him and ... as should be expected in social media ... it spread far and wide. It's already been reposted on several websites and is the subject of much discussion in our forum. All of which makes Blackwell's decision to delete his tweet kinda funny. For those who missed it, here's our retweet of it from Sunday morning.

Blackwell's tweet was posted on Saturday, which means he probably got to hear the new songs on Friday night.
