[I]n art and love and rock and roll, the whole had better equal much more than the sum of its parts, or else you're just rubbing two sticks together searching for fire. -- Bruce Springsteen, at U2's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction

Adam (and Ali Hewson) Talk About U2's New Album

@U2

Adam Clayton has been talking again about the next U2 album ... and Bono's wife Ali has been, too.

Adam was interviewed a couple weeks ago when he was doing appearances for the Walk In My Shoes effort, and one of those interviews has just appeared in the new issue of Hot Press magazine. Here's the part where Adam talks about U2's album plans:

We're here to discuss Adam's patronage of Walk In My Shoes, April 12's mental health day of action, but before getting down to business, he's willing to talk about the day job.

"We very much want to have a record out by the end of the year, September, October, November; that kind of time. We're working with Dangermouse who's a smart guy. He's on it; he's excited. It's a great team and feels very liberating at the moment -- anything goes. We have an abundance of riches, we could make three or four different records and justify that to ourselves, but to make the best record you can, you have to steer away from the ones you can make easily. We're really trying to get into territory that we're not comfortable in. If that makes sense..."

Ali Hewson also shared a quick comment about U2's next album in this interview with The Guardian:

They're well down the road on the new album and it sounds good. That's all I'm saying.

As always, keep up to date with all the news on our new U2 album page.
