U2 fans that have been patiently waiting for the past four years to hear some new music from the band may not have to wait much longer.
Bassist Adam Clayton has reportedly told an Irish radio station that U2 is hoping to finish follow-up to 2009’s No Line on the Horizon by next month.
Clayton revealed to 98FM (via NME) that that group is aiming to wrap production on the LP’s twelve tracks at the end of November, leaving time for he and his bandmates to enjoy Christmas with their families.
Of the new album’s sound, Clayton confided, “I think it’s a bit of a return to U2 of old, but with the maturity, if you like, of the U2 of the last 10 years. It’s a combination of those two things and it’s a really interesting hybrid.”
Guitarist The Edge also added during the interview with 98FM, “We always try to bring out something different, every time we’re in the studio. But it’s the fans who decide that really.”
Meanwhile, NME reports that Coldplay singer Chris Martin and producer Danger Mouse have both been linked to the project, which will mark U2’s 13th release.
