When Songs of Innocence – and its unorthodox release – became the biggest story in music, it served as reminder that U2 remain the biggest band on planet rock.
In the new issue of Hot Press (with the famous Dublin act on the cover), Olaf Tyaransen joins Bono, Edge, Larry and Adam on a two-hour flight, discussing the new album, the iTunes experiment, and everything else concerning the band on everyone’s lips. He finds the four in rare form, eager to discuss a record that many have ranked amongst the best of their long and decorated career.
“It absolutely represents where we are,” says Adam of the album, “As a band that’s been around a long time. I’m always a little bit wary of looking back and trying to rationalize where you came from, but I think, in certain ways, it revitalised some of the things that made us.”
For U2’s thoughts on technology, taxation and plenty more besides, pick up the new issue of Hot Press, on shelves tomorrow!
