U2 have been reminiscing over their groundbreaking 90s album Achtung Baby with a remastered version, a music documentary called From the Sky Down, and a bunch of other paraphernalia. After coming off the highest grossing tour in all of music history, U2 are trying to reinvent themselves once again. Writers and fans alike are speculating a break up, but they’re merely misconstruing the words of the band.
“We’d be very pleased to end on No Line on the Horizon,” Bono told Rolling Stone. “I doubt that.”
No way would U2 end on an unsuccessful commercial album. Bono always said they want to leave the music world feeling as though they accomplished everything they wanted to and have nothing else to say. That time isn’t now.
“It’s quite likely you might hear from us next year, but it’s equally possible that you won’t,” says the Edge to Brian Hiatt of Rolling Stone.
In U2 terms, that means they won’t be around next year unless a miracle should occur.
Bono seems to be in his usual phase of getting lost in the music before announcing any plans for a release date. If they go by their usual cycle of releasing an album every four years, we’re bound to see U2 in 2013.
“We have so many [new] songs, some of our best. But I’m putting some time aside to just go and get lost in the music. I want to take my young boys and my wife and just disappear with my iPod Nano and some books and an acoustic guitar,” said Bono.Tags: Achtung Baby, Bono, Edge, From the Sky Down, No Line on the Horizon, Rolling Stone, U2
