Is the New U2 Album Out Yet?

Well, um, yes it is! Unexpectedly and released free on itunes on 9th September and available until 13th October. Called Songs of Innocence, and possibly part of a trilogy with the next album to come later this year (maybe, we know what U2 are like!)

It is a look back at the genesis of the band and the relationships,events and experiences that formed them - especially Bono, whose lyrics are achingly honest.

I'm still letting the music sink in and settle, but I can say, though it is not a classic, I do like what I've heard. A full review will follow in time.


  1. Lol. Seems like we were both inspired to write about it. I look forward to reading what you have to say when you're ready. But of course we will be chatting about it all in person in two weeks time! :)

  2. Yeah I need a little more time to let it all sink in, I hear new things every time I listen!
