"We wanted [Bono] to play guitar, although he insisted on singing. Now we know why -- because he didn't have to buy or move any equipment."

Ryan Tedder: New U2 album is 'very accessible' but 'not pop'

@U2, May 20, 2016
By: Matt McGee

 

One Republic's Ryan Tedder, who had production credits on four tracks from Songs Of Innocence, is apparently co-producing Songs Of Experience, too, and talked about U2's progress in a recent Radio.com interview:

"What is the most modern thing you can do that still has the DNA and soul of U2 but just elevates the songs [by making them] more accessible? It's a very, very accessible sounding record. But it's not pop. It's just great. It's like: I would buy this album. And I know that a lot of our younger fans would buy, or stream, the album."

Tedder sounds like a fan of All That You Can't Leave Behind, because he says U2's new material is "the most exciting stuff" he's heard since that album.

Opinions aside, the most newsworthy thing from the Radio.com interview comes when Tedder says U2's next album may only have one or two songs that were remaining from Songs Of Innocence.
