Another Band Returns! U2 New Album Sessions Started Months Ago

They never could keep out of the limelight for very long. With David Bowie announcing a shock return, Irish rockers U2 have opted to steal some of the returning legend's thunder by revealing to The Sun that they themselves are also back in the studio with a new album on the way. The multi-million selling group haven't been away for nearly as long as the Thin White Duke, or even pop stars Destiny's Child and Justin Timberlake, both who revealed their long-awaited comebacks last week. Their last album was 2009's No Line On The Horizon, whilst the group were touring as recently as 2011.

Nevertheless, the announcement that they're to return will provide yet more fuel for a 2013 that's musical year is already ablaze with anticipation. “U2 have been back and they’re really in fine fettle" the group's front man Bono told The Sun. "They’re mad for it at the moment and they really want to make a new record. And they don’t care if it takes ten years – they don’t care if it never happens again, they just want to get it right." So that wasn't a definite on whether their new album - the group's 13th - would see the light of day this year, but it certainly sounds like they're getting on with it.

For many fans of the band, it'll be a relief to see Bono back behind the microphone doing his day job, with many getting increasingly exasperated at the singer's move into the political arena. The band have also faced accusations of tax evasion in recent years, though it's something that they've always vehemently denied.
