Bono's been talking some more about U2's recent work in the studio. He did an interview with the Irish Voice that has a couple signature Bono-isms (Edge is on fire, "We've hit a vein") and some specific praise for the bass player:
"There's a bass line coming up that you literally cannot believe. It's just unbelievable."
In a recent Billboard article, James Mercer of Broken Bells says that his partner, Brian Burton (AKA Danger Mouse) has been working with U2: "Right now Brian's doing U2; I think he's still in Dublin doing that." The article as published on Thursday, but there's no indication when Mercer made the comments.
In the Irish Voice interview, Bono says this of working with Danger Mouse:
"We're working with this special soul, Brian Burton. He listens in a very different way. There are things that have always been in our music but maybe not being accentuated. It's really very, very different. It's shocking how different it is."
