The Edge confirms the preparation of a new U2 album
It's confirmed, U2 is indeed working on the successor to their 2017 album Songs of Experience. The Edge, the band's guitarist, spilled the beans in a recent interview with Rolling Stone, revealing in passing that he is working on a new song with bassist Adam Clayton.
I just have so much fun writing (a song) without necessarily having to think about where it's going to go. It's more about enjoying the experience of writing without having any expectations or limitations in the process," he said, admitting in passing that nothing final has been recorded yet.
It's also the occasion for The Edge to talk about a previously mentioned project that could put fans on edge. While Bono's band has just announced an anniversary reissue of their 1991 album Achtung Baby, the band could also revive the Zoo TV Tour. For the neophytes, Zoo TV is the name that U2 had given to the tour that followed the album between 1992 and 1993 and that remained in the annals in many ways because of a device as pharaonic as innovative.
The tour included a complete TV station that could transmit and receive images from around the world. Dozens of screens were set up on stage, broadcasting subliminal messages and live images to create an interactive experience denouncing the mass media in the wake of the Gulf War. I think Zoo TV could absolutely come back and be as relevant. We're not at the point where we're doing more than talking about it yet, but I wouldn't rule it out, The Edge finally said.
