A return to their "spiritual home"...
U2 are returning to the record label that discovered them for their new LP. Yahoo! News reports that the band will release their upcoming album via Island Records, which discovered the group in the late 1970s. U2 left the label about seven years ago after a dispute with the new label head, following former boss Jason Iley to Mercury Records.
However, earlier this year Universal Records shut down Mercury, moving most of their acts to Virgin/EMI. A source says that the band is headed back to Island, their "spiritual home," thanks to a change in management. The album is expected to be released in April of 2014.
