U2 Best Studio Work Since 1979

Just in from RTE a interview where Bono speaks about the time in the studio. Commentary from video clip. The interview starts at 2:03:00 amazing interview and insight -

“Looking for the perfect pop song. Edge is in denial of his genius. I’m a little too sure of my own. Larry is suspicious of both and Adam sees merit in both. They’re unbelievable. They really want it, though, I will say that. As a band there’s no sense of entitlement. I think they’re very aware that U2’s gotta do something very special to have a reason to exist right now, so that’s what we’re doing. We’re song writing — you know the process. But it’s — they’re amazing men. They really are extraordinary. They really, really want it.”

“There won’t be a U2 album unless there’s something really special. You just gotta go to that place. You gotta dig a deep well and see what you can pull up. We’ve been through many songs and there’s some great stuff. I would say we had the best three weeks in the studio that we’ve had since, like, 1979. Three weeks is all it should take….”

U2 Mystery Studio Clips (Listen)

The chatter starts when nothing is reported. Frankly this is one of those items that has gone without notice. Could someone have linked some new U2 songs without anyone even noticing ?  The fan site U2 Valencia has reported that the songs have been recorded around Feb 2012 - No way to really prove or disprove the suggestion at this time. However we have pulled the clips down and will be running them over pro tools which is the standard tools used in studio recordings to see if we can catch a date. Watch for more news about the mystery U2 clips -

Again its a bit early to be sure that this is part of anything new - So lets call it a rumor for now -
