Some interesting new information is emerging about U2's upcoming studio album, courtesy of the band's longtime producer, Daniel Lanois, and via Globe and Mail music reporter Brad Wheeler. In a series of Twitter messages, the journalist has been revealing some details Lanois recently shared with him about the project.
Wheeler says that Lanois, who isn't overseeing U2′s next album, tells him that Bono recently visited at his home in Los Angeles and treated him to a preview of some of the new tracks. According to Brad, Lanois says the album "sounds 'amazing' and 'big,' with some Achtung Baby adventurism."
As for his feelings about not working on the record himself, Lanois tells Wheeler he didn't mind, noting, "I don't know if I'd survive the experiment."
