U2's new album

No Line On The Horizon, the new studio album from U2, will be released on Monday 2nd March 2009.

Written and recorded in various locations, No Line On The Horizon is the group’s 12th studio album and is their first release since the 9 million selling album How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb, released in late 2004.

Sessions for No Line On The Horizon began last year in Fez, Morocco, continued in the band’s own studio in Dublin, before moving to New York’s Platinum Sound Recording Studios, and finally being completed at Olympic Studios in London.

The album calls on the production talents of long-time collaborators Brian Eno and Danny Lanois, with additional production by Steve Lillywhite, who has reportedly said that the new album is U2's best ever.

If you like U2's old stuff - you can listen to the entire album of Boy here.

Hmmm, interesting. That's over 4 years since their last album - which I thought was rather mediocre.
With every U2 album comes an insider's claim that it's their best. As much as Zooropa, Pop and All That You Can't Leave Behind had their lovable moments; Achtung Baby, their last decent complete album, sure is a long time ago.
With bands like Muse and Radiohead (just two examples from a very long list) delivering high quality, ground-breaking music more often to their fans, I think (and I don't really like to say this as I was once a Bono Disciple) that U2 are getting past it and not providing any quality.
Come 02/02/2009, I hope that my faith in the dilapidated juggernaut that is U2 can be somewhat restored - I can't say that I'm overly hopeful.
