Head of Interscope Confirms 2014 U2 Album Release; Music Video in the Works

August 21, 2014 · Leave a Comment 

It has been an arduous year (decade?) for U2 fans desperate for new music.

Indecision, producer changes and the occasional promising tweet – always immediately deleted – were all fans had to go on.
