    U2 plan to release a new album in just 18 months. Titled 'Songs of Experience', lined up for next release. Bassist Adam Clayton told the new issue of Rolling Stone magazine: ''We're hoping 'Songs of Experience' will be less about intimacy and more about a celebration of sorts.'' Clayton's band mate Bono has also revealed an album called 'Songs of Ascent' - a record he previously claimed would be the follow-up to 2009's 'No Line on the Horizon' - could still be released as part of a trilogy of themed LPs.The singer said: '''Songs of Ascent' will come.

  • Bono Met Chess Champ Garry Kasparov, Supports His Bid to Run World Chess Federation

    Matt McGee
    13 Jun 2014 | 5:04 pm
    Bono recently met one of the all-time great chess masters in Dublin, Garry Kasparov, and talks about the visit in a letter that was posted today on Kasparov’s election website. Election? Yep. He’s running for President of FIDE, the World Chess Federation. And in the letter, Bono expresses his support for Kasparov to get the position, while also reminiscing about his own chess-playing dreams as a child in Dublin: I met the great man recently in Dublin, and heard he was running for President of FIDE. I can’t think of a more luminous mind to take that position. I became a child…

    Artist Fin DAC has created an enormous mural painting of Bono and The Edge inside the Gibson Hotel in Dublin. Gary P., our Dublin photographer friend, met up with the artist last Wednesday to shoot these photos as the project wrapped up. We’re told this is a permanent mural, so next time you’re in Dublin do check it out. The Gibson Hotel is right across from the O2 Arena (on the site of the old Point Depot). Here are some more photos – thanks Gary! The post PHOTOS: Giant U2 Mural at Dublin’s Gibson Hotel appeared first on @U2 Blog.
  • Bono turns up on old Orbison demo

    7 May 2014 | 1:39 pm
    Roy Orbison’s Mystery Girl is being rereleased with bonus material in celebration of the album’s 25th anniversary. Orbison died of a heart attack just days after finishing studio work on this highly-praised record, so the celebration is even more meaningful. One of the anniversary package’s bonus features includes a previously unreleased demo of Orbison working on the critically-acclaimed “She’s A Mystery To Me,” a song written for him by Bono and The Edge while on the Joshua Tree tour. Bono can clearly be heard giving instructions to Orbison and percussionist Jim Keltner on this…

    Steve Stockman lands in the U.S. this week for his 2014 Midwest tour starting Wednesday evening, March 26, at the University of Dayton. U2 fans may know his name–he’s the author of Walk On: The Spiritual Journey of U2, an engaging, entertaining, and informative look at how U2 have let their faith and their art intersect. If so, you may also know he’s a minister based in Belfast–which means folks in the States don’t often get a chance to catch up with him in person. And, you may know he has an interest in popular music, faith, and culture beyond the sounds of just…

    To the brood: My apologies for the delay in submitting the second part of this four-part series. I had initially intended to publish these entries on a weekly basis, but alas proverbial roadblocks associated with my day job as a journalist have proven significant. Consider that arguing U2’s relevance in a largely irrelevant music industry, where cookie-cutter hits continue their two-decade assault on mainstream pop, requires more than a quick offering halfheartedly written because high school football and public corruption (I cover the South Texas area…enough said) were still on the mind.

Avril Lavigne/Green Day – Really, anyone who ever claims to be ‘Punk Rock’ is hated and called a poser. Because if there’s one thing punks hate more than authority, it’s punk. Prince – I’m not sure why Prince gets such a bad rap. The dude is a musical genius. U2 – I don’t really care for their music, but also don’t harbor the animosity…
