Gavin Friday, U2's longtime mate, appeared Saturday morning on RTE Radio One's Weekend On One program and, in between playing some of his favorite songs, he also spoke with host Cathal Murray about a variety of topics ... including U2. The short conversation included this exchange about U2's album plans.
Murray: Is it true they have a new record in the pipeline? They have a few new records in the pipeline, don't they?
Friday: They always have a new record in the pipeline and it's always their best. "Can you just shut up and just make it?" (laughs) -- is my advice.
Murray: Have you heard the new material?
Friday: I've heard a bit of -- Danger Mouse is producing it, so it's quite different.
Murray: Is there a release date yet?
Friday: I don't know with them. Next year, maybe.
