LA Times: U2 Album in April, New Song Called ‘Invisible’

Bookmark and Share

Steve Zeitchik of the Los Angeles Times spent what seems like a good amount of time with U2 earlier this month when the band was doing publicity for "Ordinary Love" in New York City. That included a visit to the studio as U2 continued to work on its upcoming album -- an album that today's article says is due in April. [Note: Most current rumors have the album out on March 31 worldwide and April 1 in North America.]

The article specifically mentions a new song called "Invisible," that's described as "an anthemic number about leaving one's hometown."

There are also a few descriptions (in the reporter's words) of the new album:

  • "...a collection of songs told partly from the perspective of an innocent and partly from a seasoned veteran."
  • "it has traces of the Clash and Sex Pistols and Kraftwerk ... but it also comes laden with soul and old-school R&B."
  • "Thematically, the album will center on the collision between hard-earned wisdom and youthful hunger."

The whole article is a good read -- check it out on LATimes.com.
