When U2 were writing and recording their 2014 album Songs of Innocence, controversially given away for free on Apple's iTunes last fall, the Irish rockers had more than enough material to fill one album. "It became obvious that we were working on two separate albums," the Edge told Rolling Stone last year.
Now, with Bono, Edge, Larry Mullen Jr., and Adam Clayton nearing the finish line of their massive Innocence + Experience Tour--it ends with four shows in their native Ireland in late-November--the group will get back to work on that record, titled Songs of Experience.
When EW caught up with Bono to talk about the making of their classic 1991 album Achtung Baby for our 25th Anniversary issue, the lead singer also shared an update on their next album's progress. As of now, he reveals the group has around 18 tracks completed, which they will whittle down to around a dozen for the final record.
