“We’re still working some things out,” Bono said of the group’s thirteenth studio album, which he said was being prepped for a June release date.
The album’s lyrics are said to focus on the “collision between hard-earned wisdom and youthful hunger.”
While the previous version of the song, featured on the soundtrack to the Mandela biopic, Mandela Long Walk to Freedom, was produced by Danger Mouse, this new one was helmed by Adele collaborator, Paul Epworth.
Billboard reports that the band is looking to release their new album in April with plans to announce the official date in a commercial at this year’s Super Bowl, which will air February 2.
U2 has a brand new song–their first in three years–but it wasn’t written for their long awaited follow-up to 2009’s ‘No Line On The Horizon.’
