Le groupe irlandais de rock U2 devrait donner un mini concert d'un quart d'heure, samedi soir vers minuit, sur les marches du Palais du Festival de Cannes, avant la projection de "U2 3D", un film en relief sur un de leurs concerts, selon des sources concordantes.

Le chanteur Bono, accompagné par ses musiciens, chantera trois morceaux pour le plus grand plaisir du public, avant la projection, hors compétition, du film co-signé par Catherine Owens et Mark Pellington, qui devrait débuter vers 0H30.

Samedi après-midi, ce mini-concert mobilisait encore l'organisation du festival, absorbée par la sonorisation et la sécurité d'une opération inédite sur la Croisette.

"U2 3D" restitue en 55 minutes un concert filmé début 2006 lors d'une tournée en Amérique Latine, diffusé en trois dimensions, avec un nouveau procédé qui ne nécessite pas de lunettes.

Il est projeté hors compétition au 60e festival qui s'est ouvert mercredi et se terminera le 27 mai.

Mise à jour : C'est avec un peu de retard que U2 est arrivé sur le fameux Tapis Rouge des marches du Palais des Festivals à Cannes pour présenter le film U2 3D.

Retard, tel a été le maitre mot aujourd'hui. Déjà dans la journée, des contraintes d'aéroports avait privé la conférence de presse du film de la présence du groupe. Et ce soir, c'est la longue ovation donnée à la fin de la représentation du film de Michael Moore qui a fait que le groupe est arrivé avec une quinzaine de minutes de retard.

Mais le mini-concert a quand même eu lieu et, après la fameuse introduction avec Arcade Fire, U2 a joué Vertigo, à la fin de laquelle Bono a chanté un bout de "Ca plane pour moi", et Where The Streets Have No Name. Ensuite, le groupe est vite rentré dans le Palais. La séance pouvait commencer.

Le Festival de Cannes
s'offre un concert de U2

Le groupe de rock irlandais a donné un mini concert samedi soir, en marge de la projection d'un film en 3D sur un de leurs concerts.





U2, avec au centre le chanteur Bono, sur les marches du Palais des festivals (AP)
Pour sa 60e édition, le Festival de Cannes s'est offert un mini-concert du groupe irlandais U2 samedi 19 mai au soir en haut des marches du grand escalier du Palais, dans une ambiance électrique devant des milliers de spectateurs massés derrière les barrières juste après minuit.

Le chanteur Bono et son groupe étaient venus présenter le documentaire "U2 3D", de l'Irlandaise Catherine Owens et de l'Américain Mark Pellington. Ce documentaire d'un peu moins d'une heure et en trois dimensions, sur la tournée "Vertigo Tour" du célèbre groupe de rock, était projeté hors-compétition en séance de minuit.

Des batteries, des cuivres et du matériel acoustique avaient été installés sur une estrade à roulettes en haut des marches, qu'a gravies le chanteur Bono, entouré de ses musiciens et des réalisateurs du film.

"Bon anniversaire, Cannes!", a-t-il scandé en français, dans une atmosphère surchauffée et sous les flashes des photographes et projecteurs des caméras de télévision.


"Le monde est à vous"

Casquette à la Fidel Castro, gros anneau à l'oreille gauche, veste militaire noire avec le gros rond "Peace and Love" clouté à l'endroit du coeur, lunettes teintées de rose, le chanteur a interprété "Vertigo", avant de clamer d'autres phrases à la foule, en français: "Ca plane pour moi", "Le monde est à vous", "Mon coeur bat la chamade" ou "Ce soir, c'est magnifique".

Descendant et remontant les marches revêtues du traditionnel tapis rouge, Bono a interprété une seconde chanson, "Where The Streets Have No Name", avant de saluer longuement la foule puis de prendre congé, rentrant avec son équipe dans la grande salle du Palais pour la projection du film.

Le documentaire ayant été tourné en 3D, les 4.000 spectateurs s'étaient vu remettre une paire de lunettes spéciales, sur l'étui desquelles était écrit, en anglais et en espagnol, un avertissement précisant qu'elles n'étaient pas destinées à protéger des rayons du soleil. La projection a débuté quelques minutes plus tard, peu après 1h du matin. (AP)

Long black car through the empty park
Feel you like a rainbow in the dark
I got a million dollars and a broken heart
Someone out there could use




They know my name, the thieves and louts
They got no soul, just techno and house
And you're not even as old as my tattoos



I am the Blues
I am the Blues

I talk real sweet, I talk real slow
I'm the voice you've loved on the radio
A pirate with a breast of gold
That stuff makes slaves get bought and sold


Help me, help me ,realise
I just forgot the colour of my own eyes
All we do is hurt and break and bruise



I am the Blues
I am the Blues

I'm as blue as the Côte d'Azur
And both of us are not so pure
Do I still belong to her?
Aidez-moi, aidez-moi, I can't choose



I am the Blues

Falling through the cracks
The ticker tape and tax
Getting up the back of the music
whores and hacks



I stood up to dance
I lost my balance
But my faith in France
Some things you can't lose



I am the Blues, oh I am the Blues
I am the Blues, I am the Blues
I am the Blues, oh I am the Blues
I am the Blues

notamment WAVE OF SORROW dont le texte vient seulement d'être fait
par Mister BONO sur une mélodie de 2O ans :

Heat haze rising
On hell’s own hill

You wake up this morning
It took an act of will
You walk through the night
To get here today
To bring your children
To give them away

Oh… oh this cruel sun
Is daylight never done
Cruelty just begun
To make a shadow of everyone

And if the rain came
And if the rain came… now

Souls bent over without a breeze
Blankets on burning trees
I am sick without disease
Nobility on it’s knees

And if the rain came
And if the rain came… now
Would it wash us all away
On a wave of sorrow
Wave
On a wave of sorrow

Where now the holy cities?
Where the ancient holy scrolls?
Where now Emperor Menelek?
And the Queen of Sheba’s gold

You’re my bride, you wear her crown
And on your finger precious stones
As every good thing now been sold

Son, of shepherd boy, now king
What wisdom can you bring?
What lyric would you sing?
Where is the music of the Seraphim?

And if the rain came
And if the rain came… now
Would it wash us all away
On a wave of sorrow
Wave
A wave of sorrow
Wave.

Blessed are the meek who scratch in the dirt
For they shall inherit what’s left of the earth
Blessed are the kings who’ve left their thrones
They are buried in this valley of dry bones

Blessed all of you with an empty heart
For you got nothing from which you cannot part
Blessed is the ego
It’s all we got this hour

Blessed is the voice that speaks truth to power
Blessed is the sex worker who sold her body tonight
She used what she got
To save her children’s life

Blessed are you, the deaf cannot hear a scream
Blessed are the stupid who can dream
Blessed are the tin canned cardboard slums
Blessed is the spirit that overcomes

U2 Play surprise surprise in london

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ecUeE1mhSao&feature=related











Le public de l’Union Chapel de Londres, venu écouter We Are Scientists, Biffy Clyro and The Courteeners, a eu l’heureuse surprise de voir arriver sur scène Bono et Edge, annoncés comme "un guitariste qui n’a pas joué depuis longtemps et susceptible de faire quelques erreurs" et un chanteur "un peu timide qui n’articule pas très bien".

Acclamés par le public, Bono et Edge ont joué en acoustique 4 chansons : Stay, Desire, Angel of Harlem et Wave of Sorrow avec Edge au piano.

Bono a expliqué que Wave of Sorrow était une chanson inspirée de son voyage avec Ali en Ethiopie en 1985, “un moment important pour sa vie et celle du groupe"

Adam était présent au balcon durant tout le show.

Band dust off rare track for acoustic show
U2’s Bono and The Edge played a surprise gig tonight (November 23) at London’s Union Chapel.

Playing as part of Mencap’s Little Noise Sessions, the duo surprised the audience with a four song set which included rare track ‘Wave Of Sorrow’.

The identity of the ’special guests’ was shrouded in mystery when introduced by host Jo Whiley as “a new band with a lot of potential…Dave the guitarist is very nervous…If he makes a mistake forgive him, he’s new. The singer is very shy.”

The band opened with ‘Zooropa’ track ‘Stay (Faraway, So Close)’ with Bono reading the lyrics off a sheet on a music stand.

The singer changed the lyrics: “You can go anywhere/ Miami, New Orleans, London, Belfast and Berlin” to “ You can go anywhere/ Miami, New Orleans, Belfast and Islington,” which was met by roars of approval from the crowd.

After the track finished The Edge said : “I hope you like our new direction.”

Launching into ‘Desire’, Bono ad libbed parts of INXS‘ ‘Need You Tonight’ into the track. He sang the lyrics “I’ve got to let you know / You’re one of my kind.”

He started clapping before taking out a harmonica to play on the track’s distinctive finish.

Bono introduced ‘Angel Of Harlem’ by saying : “This is our only Christmas song.”

After a false start which saw the singer sing the start of ‘Like A Rolling Stone’ by Bob Dylan over The Edge’s riff, the duo continued.

At one point Bono said : “Merry Christmas Yoko.”

When the song finished the pair shook hands.

Bono then introduced the next track by saying : “So about 20 years ago we started a tune on ‘The Joshua Tree’ and yesterday we just finished it. This song is based on the experiences that my lovely wife Ali had in Ethiopia.

“You forget that this was the land of the Queen Of Sheeba…I was 25 and it was an extraordinary time to be there…It was an overwhelming experience.

“This (song) has never been played before. Just don’t tell Larry (Mullen) and Adam (Clayton) we’re doing it…Oh Adam’s here! This is for you sir.”

They played ‘Wave Of Sorrow’ with The Edge playing the keyboards.

Bono said : “Thanks for being so generous,” and The Edge said : “I hope you didn’t notice there were a few mistakes but I was told that was okay…I felt the love.”

Sundance star Bono sees world through rose-tinted glasses
Band takes front row at film premiere










Monday January 21 2008

It's not very often U2 get the chance to join their audience to enjoy one of their own shows.


But that's what happened when the band turned up for the world premiere of their ground-breaking new movie in the US at the weekend.

U2 3D, the live action movie shot in digital 3D during the South American leg of the band's 'Vertigo' tour, was one of the show-pieces of the Sundance Film Festival in Utah.

The band was given a tumultuous reception on Saturday night when they arrived for the screening at the Eccles Theatre in Park City, accompanied by Hollywood star and Sundance chief Robert Redford.

The 'Salt Lake Tribune' reported yesterday that the U2 event was a "must-get ticket" with the theatre audience screaming as the band entered with Redford.

It was a rare moment at the festival when Redford wasn't the most famous person in the room, the newspaper said.

"But when he walked into the Eccles Theatre with the members of U2 -- Bono, the Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen Jr -- and took seats next to Nobel Peace Prize laureate Al Gore, the fame-o-meter hit the red zone."

The audience -- including the band -- donned special 3D glasses to watch the movie shot with nine hi-tech digital cameras during the band's onstage performance in Buenos Aires before 80,000 fans. The cinema audience erupted into even louder cheers when Sundance festival director Geoffrey Gilmore called the band up to the stage.

"There's a lot of love and Irish whiskey in the air," Bono said, adding a joke: "If this festival were in Dublin, it would be Raindance".

Bono praised the film's directors, Catherine Owens and Mark Pellington, for taking a risk with newly invented 3D cameras.

"Normally, you'd try it under laboratory conditions," he said. "We took it to South America with a rock band."

The foursome posed in their 3D glasses before the movie started and the audience treated it like the rock show that it was, cheering and applauding and occasionally singing along.

In one arresting moment, some of the movie-goers held up their mobile phones, like candles, when the movie's South American audience did the same.

At the end, the band and the movie were given a standing ovation and fans later wrote internet blogs saying it was just like being at a U2 concert.

It is now hoped that an Irish premiere will be staged next month and bookings have already been taken for screenings in selected cinemas throughout the country from next month.

Promoters boast that the film will give fans the chance to experience what it's like to be in the front rows at a U2 gig.

The movie will go on show at a number of selected digital 3D cinemas in Ireland -- movies@Dundrum and movies@Swords and Cineworld in Parnell Street, Dublin, IMC in Dun Laoghaire and at the SGC complex in Dungarvan, Co Waterford -- from February 22

U2 writes Sundance soundtrack with new film '3D'

PARK CITY, Utah — Bono and The Edge walk across a footbridge over an ice-crusted stream, surrounded by onlookers whose cellphone cameras are raised in a kind of group salute.
The U2 bandmates have just finished a lunch with Sundance Film Festival founder Robert Redford, and now they're heading away from the actor's ski resort in snowy Provo Canyon for the hour-long trek back to Park City, where the annual movie showcase is in full swing.

BLOG: The latest buzz from Park City

It's Saturday, and this evening the band will gather at the town's 1,200-seat high school auditorium for the premiere showing of their new concert film, U2 3D, a state-of-the-art three-dimensional immersion into their 2006 Vertigo tour that opens in select theaters nationally on Wednesday.

The Edge hops into the back seat of the SUV, and Bono takes shotgun. (Their driver, Jordan, says the singer likes to play with the stereo.) Some of the dozen or so fans gather at the passenger side, pressing their hands against the windows, and the singer and guitarist roll them down to wave goodbye.

One man in his mid-20s has watery eyes over his encounter with one-half of the world's biggest rock band and offers blessings, choking for words. Then they are off, leaving the onlookers with only memories. What's it like to have that intense effect on people?

"It's the weight of responsibility," The Edge says in mock graveness. He smiles. "And it's fun, really. It's fun."

Bono leans back. "Which is it, Edge? A weight of responsibility or fun? Come on, now. You can't have it both ways."

The Edge says flatly: "The first was irony on my part."

Bono: "Sorry, I might have missed that. We hate whinging rock stars. Come on, why else do this?"

Throughout the long drive through the northern Utah countryside, the pair banter like the schoolyard friends they are, discussing their past, present and future in the context of a movie they hope will set a new standard for concert films. By the end of the ride, they're playing a demo CD of songs they hope to include on an upcoming album.

The Vertigo tour grossed roughly $377 million from March 2005 to March 2006, a tally surpassed only by the Rolling Stones' Bigger Bang tour, according to Billboard. The band has sold more than 30 million albums domestically in the SoundScan era (since 1991) and won 22 Grammys.

U2's hits have resonated through the culture for decades with Sunday Bloody Sunday, Beautiful Day and One. They joke about it, but there is a power there.

"It's only when it's finished that you start thinking about … how people are going to receive it out there," The Edge says. "We're objective enough to know if we have a song that's going to resonate beyond just the way we're feeling about it at that minute. Objectivity is hard to keep."

It's all about the music

Bono says the movie tries to put the focus only on the music, not the personalities.

"This is what people don't understand. There are such strong attachments to the songs that we have nothing to do with," he says. "I went to see Bruce Springsteen, and he played Promised Land. I was screaming! I was grateful to Bruce, but what was going on was what was in my life when I heard that song first. That's the humbling bit that performers don't want to admit to; they're only a small part of what's really going on."

Sheer rock canyon walls drip with ice as the car maneuvers the icy road. Bono turns and says they try to write songs less about their internal feelings and more about the world outside themselves. "To express yourself, the kind of modus operandi for the iGeneration, can lead to some unpleasant results."

U2 3D, with its three-dimensional camera-roving, aspires to not just put the moviegoer in the best seat in the house, but the 50 best seats.

When he talks about the film, Bono grins and raises his eyebrows behind circular purple-tinted glasses. "It's got some rock 'n' roll. It's got some swagger, and that'll either annoy you, or it won't. But in the end, it's the emotional force of it."

He says his favorite sequence is the song Miss Sarajevo, which includes an opera part originally recorded by the late Luciano Pavarotti. "It takes on a lot of extra resonance, and it's very hard to listen to that." The Edge nods quietly, and Bono goes on: "It's my favorite U2 song, I have to say. Normally, when I hear a U2 song on the radio I cringe. Either, a) I sound like a girl, or the lyric isn't finished. … But there are some songs that I really, really do enjoy. Miss Sarajevo is one of them."

The Edge says, "For me, it was great to see the film for the first time because I've actually never seen U2 live." Bono laughs, and The Edge jokes: "I've been to a lot of U2 concerts, but I've never seen the band! So this is the closest I've ever seen to what the fans experience."

Bono says knowing he was going to be captured by some of the most advanced camera technologies in the world created a few moments of personal anxiety. "I think I was on the summer holidays, and I can, uh … I can put on weight when I'm on my holidays. I like to eat and drink wine."

When the band arrived in Mexico to start the film production on the South American leg of the tour, he says, "I'm embarrassed to say I wasn't looking the best. I don't think I'm the most vain of rock 'n' roll stars you'll meet, but I had a panic attack at the thought of a 3-D, 40-foot arse. But by the time we got to Buenos Aires, I was back on track. But some of the shots I can see, I can't help thinking, 'You fat bastard …' "

The movie also has had an effect on band unity, giving them all a clearer perspective on what the others do. Bono marvels at bassist Adam Clayton's renewed prowess, while The Edge says he wondered if Larry Mullen Jr. felt isolated stuck on the top platform of the massive stage with his drums.

"He's very assertive, Adam is, in this," Bono says. "On this last tour, he really came out of himself. He's kind of the 'wise owl' of the band, and he has become a bit of a hermit. He withdraws to his fine art and quite cerebral life, and on this movie, he's a real proper rock star."

Keeping emotions in check

Bono recalls the performance in Sydney during the early 1990s when Clayton "had a terrible turn" struggling with alcoholism and missed a show, threatening the unity of the band. In those days, Bono says, Clayton "was hanging on to his bass for dear life, and he's frightened about what's happening to him. You cut to where he is now, this person who is filled by the music and strength and joy … and he's with his friends, and he's alive and loving being alive. You can never know what that feels like."

Though fans might not notice such nuance, Bono says the movie captures the inner lives of his friends. "I see Edge's frustration. He was going through some tricky things at the start of this tour in Buenos Aires, and there's proper violence in the guitar playing. That is the right arena for your despair."

The Edge adds, "Some of my best shows and indeed probably the worst shows I ever played in U2 were filmed for this 3-D movie. The final show of the tour, for some very sort of personal reasons to do with family and health, what have you — it was the only time I ever played a U2 show where I didn't want to be there. Thankfully, looking at the film I can't see that."

What surprised him about the footage was "how separate we are onstage. When I'm playing and Bono is singing, we're lost in the music, and our physical proximity to each other is not actually that important. But when you see that happen in a 3-D movie, you see that Larry is at the back, and for a minute I thought, 'Wow, that must be a slightly lonely place,' to be sitting at the drums giving it everything he has as he does every night, but it's like his bandmates are scattered around this huge room."

Another reason they wanted to do the movie was to reach out to fans who can't afford tickets. Bono says they try to keep the price of some seats low, but there are never enough. "I'm hoping that all the people in high school or who are college-age and don't have the cash to go see us can go see us for a low price with this film."

So why Sundance for the premiere? Both men have been to Sundance as moviegoers in the past, and say they simply enjoy it. "There's a great nobility to the Sundance Film Festival," Bono says, describing it as "a nexus of art and commerce, culture and politics."

A wide, frozen lake spreads out next to the salt-whitened Utah freeway, and Bono points out the gauzy sundown, the sun slipping beneath white clouds that blend with snowy mountaintops in the distance.

"Can I interrupt this broadcast?" he says. "There's an amazing moment in Ireland, where we live, when the sea and the sky can have the same color and the line of the horizon disappears. And I look at these mountains, and it's just about to happen here."

He reaches beneath the seat and pulls out a CD case, withdrawing a hand-labeled disc. "I have just the right song for it … if I can find it."

He slips the CD into the player and heavy distortion fills the car. It's a song called No Line on the Horizon, which the band is developing for their next album. "It came out of a new distortion box that my guitar tech got," The Edge says.

"This is a little full on!" Bono shouts. "But it's worth it, just to get a flavor of this. It's only a demo."

The song is rough, weaving between brutal guitar blasts underscoring the mellow title refrain. "These are just first drafts," Bono explains. He slips in another CD, this one U2's version of a lively Irish folk ditty about folk singer Ronnie Drew, one of the founders of The Dubliners.

Bono sings along with his own voice from the speakers, stopping to point out when Sinead O'Connor and Andrea Coor come in to sing the chorus: "Here's to you … Ronnie Drew …"

The bandmates say they conceived it as a way to cheer up the 73-year-old Drew, who is ailing with cancer. They may put it out as a single in the next few months.

Since the recordings are still in the embryonic phase, it's not clear what direction the band will be headed with their next collection of songs, but as the car winds through the traffic of Park City's bustling Main Street, Bono and The Edge provide some clues to their mind-set while talking about what they like in other movies.

"Joy is the hardest thing, always, for any artist, for any writer, for any photographer," Bono says. "It's the hardest thing to capture because it's impossible to contrive, whereas despair — you can have a good go at despair."

"You don't have to try too hard to summon it up," The Edge adds.

"It's a little bit too easy," Bono agrees. "Or melancholy, which we can sometimes suffer with."

The car pulls up at their destination, they bid farewell and step out to where the crowd of fans from the start of their journey is seemingly waiting for them at the end of it. Different faces, of course, but they share the same expression. And it's definitely not despair.

Bungling Bono blamed for leaked U2 tracks

BONO should be more careful about where and when he decides to blare out tracks from his band’s new album.
The U2 rock lord has been stung by a cheeky holidaymaker who overheard the singer indulging his own ego last week.

Most families have a bit of Club Tropicana by WHAM! rattling out of a tinpot stereo on their hols.

But the music idol is quite rightly proud of his abilities and was playing tracks from the Oirish band’s eagerly awaited new release.



U2ube ... logo is mocked up for Bono's bungling
The fan couldn’t believe it as he strolled along the beach by Bono’s palatial villa in the South of France when he heard that famous voice thundering out the windows.

And the savvy passerby was sharp enough to record what he heard then race home to stick the clips on YouTube.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


The band have recently put the finishing touches to their first studio album in four years.

Universal Music Group, which owns the band’s Interscope label, have registered the domain name No Line On The Horizon — suggesting that will be the CD title.

It sounds like a self-help book BRITNEY SPEARS might read.

Four songs have been posted including the title track and Sexy Boots, which will be the first single.

The other two leaked tracks are thought to be called Moment Of Surrender and For Your Love.

Super producer and long-time U2 collaborator DANIEL LANOIS, who has produced the album with BRIAN ENO, reckons it’s the best he has ever recorded with the band.

He said: “I think we can safely say it’s one of the great, innovative records from U2. Bono’s in great form, singing fantastic.”

I’ve heard the leaked tracks and it definitely sounds like a return to form.

Their last album, How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb, was great — as was the Vertigo Tour — so they have a lot to live up to.

The album is pencilled in for release in November with Sexy Boots strutting its stuff a couple of weeks before.

The names of several other tracks on the album have also been leaked and include Love Is All We Have Left, One Bird, If I Could Live My Life Again and The Cedars of Lebanon.

Bono is notoriously secretive about new material.

You’d think one of the richest men in rock would have a pair of decent headphones.

NOUVEL ALBUM U2 EN 2OO9

discussion avec Mister Bono


03.09.2008
'We want 2009 to be our year'

'We’ve hit a rich songwriting vein and we don’t want to stop.' Bono has been talking to U2.Com about how the songs are shaping up for the new record and plans for 2009 to be their year.


‘This is our chance for us to defy gravity once again, ‘ explains Bono, calling in from a break in recording sessions in the south of France. ‘ We have what it takes, we have the songs, new rhythms and a guitar player who is not ready to re-enter earth's atmosphere until he's taken a slice of the moon!
'It's been fun, it's been maddening... there have been injuries and recoveries, no babies born that I know of, but this one is nearly ready for the new year of 2009.'

The band have been writing and recording the follow-up to ‘How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb’ since last year, and the feeling is that they’ve hit a creative groove so there are no plans to stop. Everyone, he says, is excited about where the recording is taking them.

‘When we set out on this record it was Larry who came up with the plan not to have a plan. He put up this idea that wouldn’t it be great just to make music for its own sake, not for the purpose of a live show or on album but just to see what we’re capable of…’

It’s an idea that’s paid off. Following sessions in Morocco, in Dublin and through the summer in France, the band have written ‘fifty or sixty’ tracks. And counting.

‘We’ve hit a rich songwriting vein,’ he explains. ‘It gets a bit dark down here but looks like we've found diamonds not coal. I thought a while back we might have the album wrapped by now, but why come up above ground now if there's more priceless stuff to be found?

For now, they’re keeping a promise they made to themselves when they started writing: ‘We said to each other that if we got to the great place then we wouldn’t stop…’

So the writing and recording continues and while they now know what shape most of the album will take, they're not leaving the studio just yet.

‘We know we have to emerge soon but we also know that people don’t want another U2 album unless it is our best ever album. It has to be our most innovative, our most challenging … or what’s the point ?’

They have no doubts that it will be as important a release for U2 as any. ‘It’s a brand new chapter for us, and everyone we’ve played the tracks to has said that musically it feels like another departure.

‘The last two records were very personal, with a kind of three piece at their heart, the primary colours of rock - bass, guitars and drum. But what we’re about now is of the same order as the transition that took us from The Joshua Tree to Achtung Baby.’

He also mentions that the recording in Morocco was the first time the band have worked in a studio open to the sky: ‘On that track you can hear the sound of a swallows nest close to the building - it’s beautiful.’

Longtime collaborators Danny Lanois and Brian Eno have joined the band at different times, and, more recently, Steve Lillywhite – usually a tell-tale sign that a record is nearly done. ‘Steve has that ear for a top line melody and a good hook.’

But while Bono is itching to get the music out he says it’s going to be early 2009 when we first get to hear the songs.

‘I’m always the one who underestimates how easy it is to simply 'put out the songs now', if it was just up to me they’d be out already! But early next year people will be able to start hearing what we’ve been doing. We want 2009 to be our year, so we’re going to start making an impression very early on …’

New Edge interview 11/20/2008
U2 Album Still Not Finished

But Edge confident as deadline looms, learns MOJO’s Danny Eccleston.

WITH THE RELEASE of U2’s 12th studio album delayed until February, and the band still mixing furiously in a London studio MOJO are unable to name for fear of an instant fan-siege, guitarist The Edge has called the MOJO office with a progress report.

In line with U2’s late preference for enigmatic titles, the album seems certain to be called No Line On The Horizon – although Edge insists that anything can still change (U2 have even been known to record backing vocals in the mastering suite).

He goes on to reveal that they’ve shelved the songs recorded with Rick Rubin in 2006 and that much of the material dates from sessions with stalwarts Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois, who co-write. Confirmed track titles include Moment Of Surrender and Unknown Caller.

There follows the director’s cut of the interview reported in the issue of MOJO magazine that’s on the shelves right now…

MOJO: Well, my first question has to be, have you finished yet?
Edge: [Coolly] Not quite. That’s why we’re here.

So, why finish up in London?
Well, it’s good to get out of familiar surroundings when you’re looking for a different perspective. Get out of the comfort zone.

If you’d stayed in Dublin, would you have just carried on producing material rather than bringing everything to a conclusion?
Maybe. Also, a good mix room is always important. Our studio in Dublin is more like a glorified rehearsal room really. It doesn’t have proper acoustic treatments for mixing and whatever. So we always mix in a studio that’s properly set up for that process.

Is the album still going to be called No Line On The Horizon, or is that a red herring?
It’s not totally firmed up but it’s still the working title.

So, what the hell does it mean?
It’s an image. It’s an image, Bono tells me [laughs]. It’s like when you’re moving forward, but you’re not exactly sure what you’re heading towards – that moment where the sea and the sky blend into one. It’s an image of infinity, I suppose – a kind of Zen image.

Is it a metaphor for how U2 make their records? No deadline on the horizon?
[Laughs] Guilty your honour! We were talking about this. Our work process is all about allowing inspiration to arrive at any time during the process. So there’s no finality, there’s no formality, until it’s in the shops. U2 albums never get finished; they just get released.

So do you think that helps the record? You can use material you started months ago, but as long as you’re re-examining it right at the last it can still sound contemporary?
Yes, I think that’s true. Song titles, lyrics, melody lines can change right up until the last minute. I think our records are always… it’s the last few weeks when things really come into focus. It might take us a long time to establish the basis of the record musically, but then a lot of stuff will change.

Famously, Chris Blackwood came down when we were doing Achtung Baby and with a week to go he said, There’s just no chance you’re gonna finish this album; I’ll come back in a month’s time and check on your progress. So he left town, and sure enough we finished at the end of that week! It’s like this ground rush. You seem to be going nowhere and then suddenly you hit the last period and then everything starts to move and everything clicks into place. It’s just the way we do it because I suppose inspiration is the ultimate thing for us. It’s not craft. So when things start to really get close, it’s a really inspiring time and everyone just gets onto a whole other level of creativity and we go into overdrive and all these ideas start coming through.

Has anything survived from the first bout of sessions [from September 2006], the Rick Rubin material?
We actually laid all that stuff to one side. Really out of deference to Rick and that set of songs we just said, Ok, that’s that, and we drew a line. So none of the Rick material went into this project. Everything has been written subsequently.

Is that because you weren’t that keen on it in retrospect?
I think there are some fantastic ideas there and they will, I’m sure, be finished off and see the light of day. We just felt like we wanted to put off the decision about what kind of record we wanted to make. And then we went in with Brian [Eno] and Danny [Daniel Lanois], literally just as an experiment to see what would happen. And suddenly there was this excess of stuff, ideas… and we just thought, OK, this is clearly where we are at our most potent at this moment, working with Brain and Danny, so let’s follow that idea down the road and we’ll get back to the material we started with Rick at some point.

What were the Rubin tracks like? Were they unusual for U2? He’s quite hands-off isn’t he, as a production “entity”?
Rick’s just an amazing intelligence and a guy with a huge love of music and an instinct for it. He gave us great advice as much as anything. His whole thing is, Don’t go near the studio until you know exactly what you want to do… which of course is the opposite of how we usually work.

But we were following Rick’s approach with Rick and we were working on songs and working on ideas and they’re still there. So I’m still excited by the possibility of trying that approach. It reminds me of what happened on our first album [Boy, 1980]. We went in, we had all the tunes – although even then we didn’t have all the lyrics – we had all the arrangements down to the point where we could just go in and record the album. We could have done it in a day, and of course the backing tracks had a great completeness, because we knew exactly what the tunes were.

The way we do things now, there are drawbacks. I feel for Larry [Mullen, drums] sometimes. He’ll be playing drums to Song A and then somewhere along the line the whole song gets thrown out, but we keep the drums, and then something else happens over those drums. Then sometimes we’ll replace those drums at the very end because he plays differently depending on what the vocal is. So even if it’s the same tempo, the same backbeat, the same chords, if the vocal’s different, the drums don’t feel quite right. So, there is something to Rick’s approach and it just means you make all your decisions early… for better or for worse. Ultimately, I feel, for us, it is those last couple of weeks when you get those amazing new ideas.

How would you describe the overall personality of the new album?
It’s a record of two halves. One half is songs that came virtually fully-formed out of sessions we did with Brian and Danny – stuff we’ve only played once or maybe twice and that’s it: just the raw moment of creation. Then the other half is material we’ve kicked around a while and went through the usual cycle of versions and incarnations. It sounds like a U2 album but it doesn’t sound like anything we’ve done before and it doesn’t really sound like anything that’s happening at the moment.

Can you talk about a couple of specific tracks?
There’s a song called Moment Of Surrender, which is seven and a half minutes long. Brian got the ball rolling with a suggestion for some chords and then we made a few adjustments and got to this set of changes that we really liked and then just kicked it off and we immediately realised there was something powerful going on. And when that happens, it’s like you don’t have to say anything in the room; people know it’s going off. Then Adam came up with this incredible bass part and Bono had a couple of melody ideas on the spot, so it was really quick. There’s something really thrilling about a piece that comes together like that, because you really don’t have time to think. There’s something great about that. It’s the purest moment, often, when you don’t have an opportunity to step back and consider anything; you’re just in it.

So it’s a trance-y thing?
It’s hard to describe really. It’s very 21st Century. It’s a beautiful song, amazing rhythms, great lyrics and [laughs] fantastic guitar playing!

And then there’s another one from Fez [Morocco, where U2 recorded in May/June ’07]. Similar kind of situation, in a session where we’re just trying out ideas and this piece of music just came through and we all knew at the time that it was good. It seems to be everyone’s favourite or second favourite tune on the album. It’s called Unknown Caller.

Can you hear the influence of Fez?
To some degree. A couple of the tunes were recorded there. We had some local percussionists come down one day – but I’m not sure that the tune they did has made the record. With Unknown Caller the sound of Fez is there because we were recording in this riad [town house]. The way they are constructed, they have this big atrium and that’s where we were set up. So the roof was open and the swallows were flying into the atrium and nesting, so at the beginning of the tune you can hear these swallows. So it really has this very tangible atmosphere of the space that we recorded it in. So Fez is there in that sense. But we’re not into musical tourism. It’s the same with Achtung Baby, there was something in there but it wasn’t overtly German, you know, and this isn’t overtly Moroccan… It’s just a flavour.

Lanois has been quoted a couple of times recently in the Canadian press and the word he seems to be favouring with regard to this record is “innovative”. After all these years with the same team can U2 still be breaking boundaries?
Well, that’s what we get off on – hearing something that we’ve never heard before. It’s so great to work with Brian; he’s always doing things that are completely fresh, and we as a band don’t really come alive unless we feel like we’re exploring some uncharted territory. So, it’s not easy to get something that you’re really excited about, but once you do, you know, and that’s everything for us. We wouldn’t want to be working with anyone else on that front. Both Brian and Danny are hugely inspiring to work with, breaking us out of our comfort zone in our writing or playing.

Your relationship has endured longer than almost any other band/producer match-up, but it’s more than that this time. Did I read that Brian and Danny were writing with you?
We decided at the beginning of the project that we would make that offer to Brian and Danny to see what it might lead us to and I think it was really great. I think they were both flattered and I think it gave them a great boost of affirmation and confidence. So those sessions had this great atmosphere; everyone was in a great mood and we got some great shit out of it. That doesn’t mean that we didn’t have to go off and write as U2. Bono and I did a lot of work on material on our own as well, but it was those sessions that set the tone for the album and they wouldn’t have panned out as they did if we hadn’t asked Brian and Danny to co-write with us.

After a couple of straight-ish rock records in All That You Can’t Leave Behind and How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb, was it time for U2 to stretch out again? Does knowing you’re in a position of strength mean you can do something wilder?
I think for us it’s really about keeping it fresh. Making All That You Can Leave Behind and How To Dismantle… inspired us at the time. This time we wanted to try something different and we didn’t really know what it was. We just knew that we wanted to fall in love with the process of making music and see where it led us. So, initially, we didn’t really think about where the music was going to go; we were just playing together and seeing what happened. And, by not concentrating at all on making an album I think an album started to emerge. So, it’s really us following our creative instincts. In some ways it’s very uncontrived. People tend to think of our music as being a manifesto of a kind but this is really organic; it’s just what is interesting to us right now in music and going for that.

What’s Bono banging on about this time?
I think there are some interesting third person characters in the songs. It’s giving Bono an opportunity to change his perspective in the lyric writing. I think the last two albums were really personal and first-person. But I think this one has a more panoramic scope lyrically, so it’s still personal and it’s still ultimately written from experience and Bono’s perspective, but he just has more freedom.

Did his piano lessons come in handy?
Yeah! He’s been working a lot on material on his own and that’s fed into various different projects that we’re working on. It’s cool. We’re all still in a phase where we can learn, develop and change. I don’t think we’ve actually stopped that process of being born, so to speak. And it’s very inspiring for me to see Bono coming up with very strong musical ideas. That’s what being in a band is all about.

You always manage to find – in every record – a piece of technology that you engage with immediately, and that throws up a song. Where The Streets Have No Name came out of your dabblings with the Infinite Guitar box, and this time you mentioned your Death By Audio pedal…
It’s this particular kind of 21st Century distortion. Guitar is such a versatile instrument, but it’s very easy to get in a cul-de-sac in terms of how it sounds. I love anything that just gives it a different personality and this particular set of distortion pedals I think, are a different colour. It’s like a different personality and that, for me, is a great jumping-off point. I used Death By Audio’s Supersonic Fuzz Gun on the song No Line In The Horizon, and a couple of others I think. It was Ben Curtis who turned me onto them. He’s one of the Curtis Brothers from Secret Machine – he’s got a new band now called School Of Seven Bells, who are pretty interesting.

So how much work is left to do?
Way too much, as usual, but we will get there. We’re not f**king around this time. This is personal!

01/12/2008 |
Des musiciens vedette comme Bono, John Legend et Jay-Z ont lancé un site de musique en ligne destiné à collecter des fonds pour lutter contre le sida en Afrique.
Plusieurs morceaux exclusifs, dont une nouvelle version de "Acid Tongue" interprétée par Jenny Lewis dans un vidéo-clip, étaient consultables sur l'internet, à l'adresse du site (RED)WIRE.

"La musique de qualité sauve des vies, j'ai une torche et vous entrez dans la planète de (RED)WIRE", annonce sur le site le chanteur Bono des U-2. Lancé le jour du 20e anniversaire de la Journée mondiale du sida, le site propose un abonnement de 5 dollars par mois, et offrira de nouveaux morceaux une fois par semaine. La moitié des abonnements seront versés au Fonds mondial contre le sida, ont annoncé (RED)WIRE et MSN, partenaires dans le projet.

"Ce lancement représente une chance incroyable d'écouter et voir des artistes exceptionnels, tout en aidant à sauver des vies", a précisé Lisa Gurry de MSN dans un communiqué. John Legend, Dixie Chicks, The Killers, Elton John, The Police, Elvis Costello et Sheryl Crow figurent parmi les musiciens se produisant sur l'internet lundi.
Après son lancement, le site enverra à ses abonnés des morceaux exclusifs une fois par semaine.

Bono espère que le spectacle musical Spider-Man imposera de nouveaux standards
lundi 1er octobre 2007, par Corinne/Dead


Bono le chanteur du groupe de rock irlandais U2 est confiant pour ce qui est du nouveau spectacle musical sur lequel il travaille Spider-Man à la composition musicale et pense pouvoir surprendre le public car il s’agira de "quelque chose de totalement inédit, du jamais entendu ou vu".

Le chanteur oeuvre à la production de Spider-Man avec son pote de U2, Edge et la réalisatrice Julie Taymor, dont le dernier film Across The Universe vient de sortir sur les écrans britanniques et américains et dans lequel, il interprète un rôle secondaire.

Nos deux stars de U2 et Taymor sont pour l’heure en quête d’une salle new yorkaise suffisamment grande pour accueillir leur projet et Bono prévient déjà le public qu’il devra se préparer à de l’inattendu.

Il déclare : "Si nous parvenons à ce que nous tentons de faire, ce sera quelque chose de jamais vu ni entendu.

"Ca va être une expérience hallucinogène pour ceux qui assisteront au spectacle. Nous possédons l’énergie visuelle que nous procure (Taymor). Le mythe de l’arachnéen et l’élasticité des personnages et tout ça peut renverser la salle."

Et Bono et Edge visent un éventail de musique le plus large possible pour cette production.

Et Bono d’ajouter : "Nous avons là du punk rock et du bel opéra."
