Edge: Six or Seven Songs Finished and 'Ready to Go'

@U2, February 18, 2014
By: Matt McGee

 

Speaking after last night's appearance on The Tonight Show, The Edge told Rolling Stone's David Fricke that U2 has about 30 songs "that we're excited about, in various states of being finished" and "six or seven [of those] are mixed and ready to go."

Fricke writes that the album is still "tentatively" set for release this summer, and that U2 was headed back to Dublin after last night's performance to get back in the studio.

About the band's songwriting process, Edge says "...we're so good at starting, not so good at finishing. That's always the way it's been. We don't abandon our songs if we really believe there is something there. We're going to keep pushing. We just don't give up."

Time for U2 fans to decide if the glass is half-empty or half-full. A discussion on Edge's comments is already underway in our forum -- feel free to join in.
