Way back in November, we were pumped to hear that U2's new album was almost complete, with the help of key collaborator Danger Mouse.
While the main album sounded like it should be pret-ty good, we were especially excited for the additional dance CD release, which we learned would "run as an additional album," featuring collaborations with will.i.am, David Guetta, and RedOne.
Now, we're bummed to hear that not only is the album delayed until 2012, but U2 is dropping the "futuristic" tracks they put together with RedOne!
Here's what U2 bassist Adam Clayton had to say about it:
"We had to have a meeting and look at the schedule to see if we could pick up any extra time to work on it. We just realized that we couldn't. To be honest, everyone was a bit gutted. But it was the only sensible decision."
"We have to focus on what we do best, and the work we did with Danger Mouse came closest to that. In the end, the thing we did with RedOne doesn't feel like the right fit."
So what about the rest of the dance stuff? Is that not happening anymore??? That would be such a shame! Sounded like a VERY cool idea to us!
What do U think about U2's delay and changes to their album? Do U approve?
