U2 go "trance"

| No Comments


The new U2 album has been influenced by "trance" and will feature "hardcore" guitars, according to Bono. The Irish rock legends have been working on the follow to 2004's "How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb" with producer Brian Eno in recent months. Sessions in Africa are said to have progressed well and the band's singer claims the results will shock fans and critics alike. Speaking about the Moroccan recordings, Bono said: "We got this little riad, a small hotel with a courtyard in the middle and set up the band there, with a square of sky over our head. "The two great catalysts of U2's recording life, Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois, joined us. We'd record during the day and then disappear into windy streets of the medina at night. It was an inspiring experience and a drummer's paradise." Bono says people can expect a "dancefloor shock" from the new album, which is not currently scheduled for a release. "Normally when you play a U2 tune, it clears the dancefloor. And that may not be true of this", he explained. "There's some trance influences. But there's some very hardcore guitar coming out of The Edge. Real molten metal. "It's not like anything we've ever done before, and we don't think it sounds like anything anyone else has done either."
