U2 Working On New Album In Morocco With Old Pals Daniel Lanois and Brian Eno

June 1, 2007 1:12 PM ET

Earlier this year Rolling Stone asked the Edge whether U2 would ever work with producers Daniel Lanois and Brian Eno again. "You might be surprised how quickly that happens," he cryptically replied. The man wasn't kidding. The legendary production duo behind many of U2's greatest albums (Achtung Baby, The Joshua Tree, The Unforgettable Fire, and All That You Can't Leave Behind) have recently been spotted in Dublin where they're said to be working again with U2. A few days ago the team moved recording sessions over to Fez Morocco, a familiar spot for U2 who shot the surreal video for "Mysterious Ways" in the African city. It's unclear whether Rick Rubin, who cut two tracks with the group for a hits collection last year, is involved with the new album. Bono and the Edge are also working on the music for a forthcoming Broadway musical adaptation of Spider-Man. "It will be a while yet before it's going to see the light of day," The Edge told Rolling Stone in April. "I think it's going to be pretty powerful."

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
