U2 plan to release a new album in the next 18 months named ‘Songs of Experience’
U2 released their new album, “Songs of Innocence,” last month via iTunes, and while fans had to wait years to hear that new U2 album, the band’s next release may not be far off. According to a new Rolling Stone interview, Bono says the group has already plotted a follow-up to “Songs of Innocence,” called “Songs of Experience,” and he hopes it will arrive sometime in the next 18 months.
“We’re hoping ‘Songs of Experience’ will be less about intimacy,” bass player Adam Clayton added. “And more about a celebration of sorts.”
U2 fans have also been waiting for the band’s “Songs of Ascent” album, which the band announced in 2009 would be the follow-up to “No Line on the Horizon.” According to Bono, “Songs of Ascent,” will finally see the light, as part of a kind of trilogy with “Songs of Innocence” and “Songs of Experience.”
“Songs of Ascent will come,” Bono said, “and there are some beautiful songs.”
Bono also dropped the news that that U2 used a variety of producers for “Songs of Innocence,” including Danger Mouse of Broken Bells.
