Shut the front door. Bono has finally said something about U2's new album. It happened during a recent interview with the German newspaper, Die Welt (The World), that was primarily about Mick Jagger. You probably saw a lot of quotes and headlines from Bono talking about Mick, but not until U2.com posted an English translation of the interview, did we see anything about a new album.
So, what did yer man say? Have at it:
I am a bit out of touch with the rest of the world at the moment, I am down in a big black hole with U2, as we are busy working on our next album. We don't know yet when it will come out. It could be finished within the next weeks, maybe at the end of the year. We are just lost in it, and we surely don't wanna wake up out of this until the dream is done.
You knew he wasn't going to go the entire pre-album cycle without saying something, right?
On an unrelated note, Bono was spotted Thursday night at the "Nuits du Sud" festival in Vence, France, where he was on hand for a Chic/Nile Rodgers gig.
