A few weeks ago I mentioned that U2 were rumored to be eyeing a November release for their 12th studio record. Well Bono has squashed the rumors and the band is set to release the album sometime in 2009! "I’m always the one who underestimates how easy it is to simply 'put out the songs now', if it was just up to me they’d be out already! But early next year people will be able to start hearing what we’ve been doing. We want 2009 to be our year, so we’re going to start making an impression very early on …" Bono spoke to and mentioned many things that would get a U2 fanatic like myself, very excited. ‘This is our chance for us to defy gravity once again," Bono said, knowing that each record the band puts out has to out do the last.
The band has about 50-60 songs written and be sure to keep an eye out here as more news filters in during the coming months!
