U2 frontman Bono has confirmed that the band are to begin work on what will be the group’s 13th release. But the iconic rock star has also stated that the band plan on getting it right, no matter how long it takes.
During an interview with The Sun (Via Live4Ever UK), Bono has explained, “U2 have been back and they’re really in fine fettle…They’re mad for it at the moment and they really want to make a new record.”
I bet you read that in your head in an Irish accent, right? But I digress. Now after so many years in the game, U2 seem to still maintain their high standards. Though they’re keen to get the ball rolling, they plan on making it perfect: “And they don’t care if it takes 10 years – they don’t care if it never happens again, they just want to get it right.
Bono adds, “Within the band we’ve been calling it ’10 Reasons to Exist’ – but I will tell you we might have at least six of them.”
U2 have been cooling their jets since 2011 after their massive 360 tour, which took a total of 25 months. Hard work pays off as it seems, with the tour earning the title of most profitable tour ever, raking in a cheeky $700,000,000.
