U2 bass player Adam Clayton says the band plans to release their follow-up to 2009’s ‘No Line on the Horizon’ early next year

New U2 is on the way. According to bass player Adam Clayton, the guys have been working hard on their follow-up to 2009’s “No Line on the Horizon,” and they “hope to have it finished very, very soon.” Of course, that sounds very promising.

Clayton revealed the news during a chat with Irish radio. When asked about a specific release date for U2’s upcoming album, he answered, “Sometime early next year.” He added that the upcoming album is “a very exciting bunch of songs right at the moment” that should be well-received by old school fans and the band’s more recent followers.

“There’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,” Clayton said. “It’s a combination of those two things, and it’s a really interesting hybrid.”

He added that the guys hope to wrap things up by the holidays. “We’re trying to get these 12 songs absolutely right and get them finished by the end of November,” he said, “and then we can kind of enjoy Christmas.”
