Bono: Stay Tuned for Another U2 Album, 'Songs of Experience'

Admits: 'I know I've said that before...'
@U2

While we're all still getting our first listens to U2's new album, Songs Of Innocence, Bono says to be on the lookout for another album called Songs Of Experience.

That's from a letter to U2 fans posted a short time ago on U2.com where Bono basically re-introduces the band after the long hiatus between albums. In addition to talking about today's album release, he says we can expect a second album (while also admitting that he's said that in the past):

We're collaborating with Apple on some cool stuff over the next couple of years, innovations that will transform the way music is listened to and viewed. We'll keep you posted. If you like Songs of Innocence, stay with us for Songs of Experience. It should be ready soon enough… although I know I've said that before…

You might recognize the titles from your high school literature classes: There's a famous book of poetry by William Blake called Songs of Innocence and of Experience.

There's been talk for years about this idea of a pair of "sister" albums, and now it seems that's actually going to happen. Remember, too, that right before the Oscar Awards, Bono said there would be two new U2 albums.
