I was a bit skeptical when an Irish Independent article yesterday mentioned that U2 is working on its next album, but this sounds much more re-assuring: Adam Clayton appeared on Irish radio on Tuesday of this week, mainly to talk about the Walk In My Shoes campaign that he's supporting. But, according to U2place.com, he also briefly mentioned what the band is doing at the moment:
"We are working on the next album. According to Bono, it may be published tomorrow but I think it will take a little longer."
Meanwhile, Dallas Schoo, The Edge's longtime guitar tech, apparently sent a note to Sadowsky Guitars confirming that "U2 is in the studio." The guitar company posted Dallas' note on Facebook:
Just received this report from Dublin, where U2 is in the studio...
Just a heads up on how wonderful your 4 basses are....beautiful instruments and so much "weight" and deep tone with a very light weight bass......amazing. The Will Lee is killer and the PJs so balanced. Adam has been tracking away and not having to break the momentum dialing in his sound.....Just a very good marriage of effortless tone that seems inherent with the overall design. The entire band and the production team could not be happier.
UPDATE: Sadowsky Guitars has since removed Dallas' note from Facebook.
