U2 Album On Hold As Spider-Man Finally Gets Off The Ground

06/16/2011
.
(Gibson) The musical Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark is go, after debuting on Broadway 14 June. The music is by Bono and The Edge of U2 and has been a long time arriving. IrishCentral.com said: "U2 haven't written ballads this affecting in years, possibly because they were busy being U2 the rock gods and not U2 the songwriters."

"We learned the hard way about how difficult this stuff is," Bono said on its premier. "We've come through the fire and this, this show is what it needed to be from the beginning. It's really working now. We're really happy with it," added The Edge. However, a full U2 album is now on hold. In 2009, U2 promised a "companion" album to No Line on the Horizon, then a dance-influenced release. But bassist Adam Clayton now says it will be 2012 before there is more genuine U2.

"When the record is finished, we'll know what it is," Clayton told Rolling Stone. The first a "meditative and processional" record dubbed Songs of Ascent was originally due before the end of 2009. The band later proposed an album of club music, recorded with producers Will.I.Am, David Guetta and RedOne and a "straight" rock album, produced by Danger Mouse. "We haven't had time to go back to that material and complete it," Clayton explains. "Everyone was a bit gutted, because I think it would have been great to have got to the end of this year and have a new record out. It's not my favorite decision to put it back, but it was the only sensible decision." more on this story
