Bono Shines on Lanois CD

Producer releases first album in a decade

Daniel Lanois will release his third solo album, Shine, on
April 22nd on Anti-/Epitaph. For the highly regarded producer, who
has worked with U2, Peter Gabriel, Bob Dylan, Emmylou Harris and
numerous others, the album will be his first as a recording artist
since For the Beauty of Wynona a decade ago.

Lanois handled production duty and played most of the
instruments himself, though he did enlist some prior collaborators
to add vocals to the album. Emmylou Harris sings on the opener, “I
Love You,” while U2’s Bono sings on “Falling at Your Feet,” which
he co-wrote with Lanois. Lanois also enlisted drummer Brian Blade,
with whom he worked on Harris’ Wrecking Ball, for the
album.

“I wanted the album to be one of those that you put on and you
never take off,” Lanois said. “I wanted it to have songs that could
be embraced by all — popular songs — and also mystery songs,
snapshot songs, smaller songs, and I wanted to include tripped-out
psychedelic instrumentals that take people on a journey.”

I Love You
