During a festive hometown break Bono revealed the working title for the new U2 album...

The Hot Press Newsdesk, 02 Jan 2013



In a rare interview, Bono spoke to the lovely Amanda Brunker for Sunshine 106.8FM over the Christmas break.

During the interview, the singer opened up to Amanda about U2, and revealed how things are on track for the band to release their first album since 2009's No Line On The Horizon.

"They're mad for it at the moment and they really want to make a new record. And they don't care if it takes 10 years, they just want to get it right."

"Within the band we've been calling it 10 Reasons To Exist but I will tell you we might have at least six of them."

The U2 frontman had been lying low in Dublin recovering from flu, which he caught over the holidays and had even caused the singer to miss his annual family day out at the Leopardstown Racing Festival on St. Stephen's Day.

"It's the first time I've been sick in three years, but I'll be damned if I'm going to let it beat me. I've loved being home – I've had the best Christmas, possibly ever."

You can listen to the full interview with Amanda Brunker over on the Sunshine FM website.
