Bono has revealed that U2 have around 18 new tracks completed for their next album, Songs of Experience, and they will whittle that down to about a dozen songs for the album’s final track list.
“We’re well into it,” Bono tells EW. “Edge just came up with a cracker the other day! It’s provisionally titled ‘Tightrope.’”
Bono says of that track, “It’s very epic. It’s very up. And, you know, that’s probably what the experience has taught us: to be fully in the moment and that fun is respected, and joy is not to be let go of.”
