In the two minute clip, Bono opens up with some rather prophetic statements about the band’s new work. “These songs were always destined,” he’s heard to remark as they tune up instruments.
“But rather than it being paint by number where it’s very disciplined and prescribed.
I always think of the zen artists – they spend all their time mixing the ink.
And it’s those last few minutes where those gestures are recorded. That’s the way all our albums go.”
The video depicts the band’s tight space, playing with hard guitar lines, different vocal styles and discussing how imagination and art work together.
And even though the studio looks like a rather poorly lit place, rest-assured Bono doesn’t lose his sunglasses.
