As for the fate of his work on the highly anticipated U2 album, Burton claims to not have a clue despite the Irish band already releasing two songs from their sessions with him, the Golden Globe-winning and Oscar-nominated Ordinary Love and the single Invisible.
"I don't really know - I just know it's not done," he said.
But is he still the producer?
"I don't know. I'm working on [Broken]Bells right now I have no idea what they are doing. I've been working on it for YEARS but I'm sure they're still working on the record."
For me that quote says a lot, sounds like the same old story, instead of just going with it U2 is being anal again and bringing in more producers and probably working the music to a safe death, It's now over five years since the last album and it's pretty poor if they can't release a new album they are happy with after all that time.
Read the full Billboard article here. I could go on and on and on, but that would be pointless, suffice it to say that, if this is true, I will not be a happy bunny!
