So, for those of us who don't follow the threads closely, can we get a brief recap in the first post, Digitize?

He could have called this 90's vs. 00's discussion.

I just saw the Tweet from the old thread about why Bono is being quiet. "It's just about making it now rather than discussing it." Hmm. Is he saying that because the others told him to be quiet or because he realizes that he overdid it last time? Either way, it only adds to the mystery.

Also, here's hoping that we have actual new album news to discuss before this thread reaches 1000 posts.

Recap: there might be a new album this year. Maybe, we'll see.

It would be nice if the mods could keep the first post updated with what we know, at least.

Can someone clarify what Bono meant by the Iovine comment on the SATS video on the last page of the previous thread?

Was he suggesting that he was a good influence? Or am I being a bit dim?!

So this time around we won't be hearing the following:
Punk rock from Mars
Edge is on fire
Best two weeks in studio in last thirty years
Worst of all.... Beach Clips
So for the next few months we are going to:
Fight about Pop, Rush, the Burton's (Tim, Richard and DM) and so on. This is gonna be a long hot summer.

And there could be a promo tour followed by another release and another larger tour.

Danger Mouse is still shoving Bono.

I guess if there's any good news to speak of it that this year has been a really good year for music. The Strokes and Atoms For Peace albums are great and there are some other great artists (Deerhunter, The National) releasing albums soon as well. Should be enough to hold us over for a while.

From my reading of it, he sounds a bit peeved off at the way that Iovine pressed the band down a particular path and perhaps had too much of a say over their commercial/singles choices. As I said over in the other thread, the dead giveaway is Edge's (feeble) attempt to stop him from saying something he'll regret - he interrupts after the first sentence to say 'Ready?'

But then there's the other side of the story...

Here's what Iovine told Rolling Stone in April 2012 about the record:
Quote:
As the head of their record company, what was your opinion of U2′s last album, “No Line on the Horizon”?
Jimmy Iovine: It wasn’t finished. The way they record — they don’t go, “OK, we have eight songs. Now we’re up to the ninth.” Forget it. The end of one song is the hook in the next one. The Edge comes in upside down, at the last minute. Bono is in five studios. [Shrugs] They didn’t finish it.
He also had this to say in Billboard back in 2008:
Quote:
I met with the guys in U2, and they say to me, 'You know what? This album needs two more songs, and it will be exactly what we have in mind.' I go there and I listen, and I agreed with them. It's a great record, but it deserves the time. Labels need to work with artists to help them achieve their best work, not to jam records out that are half-baked or three-quarters baked.

It was stupid of me to not post a recap in my first post. Unfortunately, it's too late for me to edit. However, if I have time later today, I'll type a recap up and ask a moderator/administrator to edit it in for me. Alternatively, if someone else wants to type something up before I have a chance, I give a moderator/administrator permission to add it into my first post.

Looking back at 2011 discussion about it, there was controversy about the meaning. But I'm taking it as a dig at Iovine. The "look at how that worked on the last album" (or something like that; I can't remember the exact wording at the moment) comment sounds sarcastic to me. Iovine runs one of the labels that U2 works with (I can never keep up with what exactly that situation is), and I wouldn't be surprised if he was pushing for "hits". Obviously, that push backfired, and I get the impression that Bono was talking about that. But perhaps my interpretation is incorrect.

i'm glad they're trying to focus on making the album rather than hyping it - if it's not up to scratch, it doesn't matter how much they talk it up - maybe B-man actually realises that this time

Yes. And whether or not they actually achieve something great is one thing, but either way, I appreciate the effort that the band is taking to keep everything behind closed doors this time. It gives the perception that they really are trying to surprise us with something real special.

Bono talks in mysterious ways.
