U2 in NYC: Mixing the New Album with Danger Mouse

@U2, May 30, 2013
By: Matt McGee


At least three members of U2 (Bono, The Edge and Larry) have been spotted in New York City over the past week. Bono has been seen walking the streets, posing with fans and in the doorway of Electric Lady Studios. That's also the subject of the now-infamous Chris Blackwell tweet, where the Island Records co-founder said he was listening to new U2 songs with the band and producer Danger Mouse.

So, what's going on?

According to well-placed sources, Danger Mouse has been mixing the album at Electric Lady and the band has recently joined in. U2 is apparently finished recording, and hasn't done any new recording at Electric Lady. There was a playback last week, which is apparently what Blackwell tweeted about.

Album mixing typically happens when recording is finished. It essentially involves putting all the pieces together, adding effects, making sure sound levels are correct, etc. That said, U2 is legendary for continuing to work on songs even during the mixing process. As Steve Lillywhite said in an interview last year, "They'll write the song after you've mixed it!"
