Speaking to Q magazine, The Edge gave out some info on the upcoming U2 record, Songs of Experience and compared the LP to the band's 1993 release, Zooropa. In the same interview, Bono said that his bike accident in December 2014, helped the writing of the record. He said: "The gift of it was that I had time to write while in the mentality that you get to at the end of an album. There is a reason why all the great groups made their best albums while in and around touring, because the ideas have to come out of your head.”
