U2 frontman Bono has confirmed the band have tentatively begun work on a thirteenth studio effort, but admitted they are happy to wait ten years if it takes that long to get the album right.
“U2 have been back and they’re really in fine fettle,” he is quoted as saying in The Sun. “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 don’t care if it never happens again, 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.”
U2 have been on a break since wrapping up their record-breaking 360 tour in Canada in July 2011. By then, the tour had become the biggest grossing of all time after raking in well over $700,000,000 during its 25-month run.
