They're hoping to have it done very soon...
U2's bassist says that fans won't have to wait much longer for new music. Adam Clayton appeared on Irish station 98 FM's Dermot and Dave show and said that the LP, which would be the first from U2 since 2009, will be out next year.
"We are still at it," Clayton said. "We hope to have it finished very, very soon. And it will be out, oh . . . sometime early next year. But it's a very exciting bunch of songs right at the moment . . . it's just about to be finished, so it's hard to know which way they'll go."
Speaking of the music's tone, he said, "I think it's a bit of a return to U2 of old, but with the maturity, if you like, of the U2 of the last 10 years. It's a combination of those two things and it's a really interesting hybrid. We're in the studio. We're trying to get these 12 songs absolutely right and get them finished by the end of November, and then we can kind of enjoy Christmas."
