You hold onto religion, you know, rules, regulations, traditions. I think what God is interested in is people's hearts, and that's hard enough. -- Bono, 2002

Adam: U2 EP is a Possibility

Clayton talks about future plans in U2.com member video

In addition to playing new songs during the current 2010 U2 360 tour, Adam Clayton says it's possible that U2 may put out an EP instead of a traditional album. He made the comments a few hours before last Friday's concert in Turin; the video is in the U2.com members' section. Adam talks about what the band did while Bono recovered from his back injury, and what the result of that work might be:

"We've been doing some rehearsing, but mainly we've been doing recording. That was the one thing that Bono was able to do during his recovery, so we've done quite a lot of recording. We've got quite a lot of tunes put away and we're gonna toss a few out into the show and see how they go down. If we could get, I don't know, maybe four songs into the show, it gives us a chance to get to know the songs better. It gives us a chance to evaluate how they play in front of a crowd and then you know if you're really, kind of, communicating. So you can kind of tweak them.

"We're kind of trying to break it up a bit. You know, the idea of doing another big record and going away for a long time doesn't appeal to us. But the idea of putting out tracks in the show and seeing what happens to them, maybe putting out a little EP at some point -- these are all possibilities we're thinking about."

Adam also talks about how great it is to be back on stage. But the quotes above are the most newsworthy. As always, you can keep track of U2's plans on our U2 new album page.
