Irish rockers U2 have postponed the release of their latest album, due to troubles with their ‘Spider-Man’ musical. The band, who have been in the studio working on the follow-up to 2009’s “No Line On The Horizon” , now aim to have the new album out by next year.
“We had to have a meeting and look at the schedule to see if we could pick up any extra time to work on it. We just realised that we couldn’t. To be honest, everyone was a bit gutted. But it was the only sensible decision,” U2 bassist Adam Clayton told Rolling Stone.
Remember RedOne the producer that worked on a couple of tunes with the boys? Well, Clayton said that:
”We have to focus on what we do best, and the work we did with Danger Mouse came closest to that. In the end, the thing we did with RedOne doesn’t feel like the right fit.”
RedOne works include Lady Gaga, and Ms Lopez and Danger Mouse - So for now we wait 2012 for a new album and you can expect the full power of the marketing machine behind them.
Spidey is expected to arrive June 14th and you can bet that Bono and The Edge will be happy that its finally ready to go - The preview season was longer than most runnings on Broadway. So lets get it running
