U2 headed back to where is all started for them. Island Records discovered them in the 70’s and the band left them more than 7 years ago, unhappy with the treatment at Island the boys moved on. However, the return to Island comes with new management, new possibilities and a new album.

Once Jason Iley moved over to Mercury, everything began take on a sour note.  The boys packed up and followed Jason over to Mercury a sister label to Island. Early this year, the parent company Universal closed down Mercury, moving many of the acts to a new company, Virgin/EMI, although a question mark remained over where U2 would end up, with the band and record labels remaining silent on what would happen.

Sources have confirmed that the band will head back to Island, which has had a change of management since their departure. "They are going back to their spiritual home," the source said.

U2 displayed their affection for the label by continuing to include its logo on their releases even though they had headed to Mercury.

The boys dropped by Island to meet the staff and check out their new home and everything seems to be shaping up for something big for 2014. New management, New label its clear that the band has a lot riding on this next release.

This message posted on the website may suggest that the band plans for another world tour. Or it might be just a reference to way they feel about Paul.

"Sometime soon, U2 will begin a new adventure around the world and we totally understand and respect Paul's desire to not run away with the circus – AGAIN."
