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

By |

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."
