U2 dropped its 13th studio album, “Songs of Innocence,” today without warning.
The Irish band made the announcement at Apple’s event in Cupertino, Calif.


REVUE

http://www.hitfix.com/news/album-review-u2s-songs-of-innocence

Below is a first-listen review: my take on each song by only listening to it once as I play the album straight through.

“The Miracle (Of Joey Ramone)”: A chugging, mid-tempo track that recalls the moment that the members of U2 first heard and saw The Ramones and how it opened up the world to them. “I woke up at the moment the miracle occurred/I get so many things I don’t deserve,” Bono sings. It’s an intensely personal track. Musically, it’s not an homage to punk pioneers, but it captures the innocence of musical discovery. GRADE: B

“Every Breaking Wave”:  Gentle, mid-tempo track anchored by Larry Mullen’s steady drum beat then breaks open to a more expansive tune about chasing things we know will beat up.  The refrain echoes OneRepublic, which is not surprising given that Ryan Tedder produced the track with Danger Mouse. A very radio friendly effort. GRADE: B

“California (There is No End to Love)” The track opens with Bono chanting “Barbara Santa Barbara” in both a tribute to the city and the Beach Boys’ “Barbara Ann,” before giving way to a synth and beat-laden echo-y, propulsive track about how California/Hollywood dims your light if you let it. Written about the band’s first trip to SoCal, it sounds like it could have been on “No Line on the Horizon.” GRADE: B

“Song for Someone”: Sounds like another love letter from  Bono to his wife, Ali, whom he met when he was 14. “You’re got eyes that can see right through me/You’re not afraid of anything they’ve seen…I don’t know how these cuts heal/but in you I found a rhyme.” The Edge gets some nice restrained solos in here. Deeply romantic. GRADE: B+

“Iris (Hold Me Close)”: Staccato, trademark playing by The Edge serves as the bed for this track about Iris, Bono’s mom, who died when he was 14.  She collapsed at her own father's funeral, only to die herself a few days later. It’s extremely personal, yet the love expressed is universal in its appeal. GRADE: A

“Volcano”: One of the most distinctive tunes on the track starts with a wicked bass line from Adam Clayton. It turns into U2 crossed with Oingo Boingo as Bono’s voice bounces all over the place in the electronic-fueled cautionary tale. Fun and quirky, especially as the voices rise in the background like ghosts of tunes past. New Wave is alive and well. GRADE: B

“Raised By Wolves”: Driving track framed around a 1974 car bombing that killed 33 people in Dublin. “I’m in a white van as a red sea covers/metal crash I can’t tell what it is,” Bono sings. “The worst things in the world are justified by belief,” he adds, a very strong statement for someone who has always worn his religious convictions on his sleeve. The skittering track is propelled by sharp keyboards and Mullen’s relentless beat. GRADE: B+

“Cedarwood Road”: About as hard rock/metal an intro as U2 has ever recorded, “Cedarwood Road” then transforms into one of its more traditional mid-tempo tracks (it’s a shame…it would have been interesting to see where they’d gone with the song if they’d kept the metal edge consistently instead of referencing it only occasionally as the song proceeds). The song, dedicated to Bono's childhood friend, Guggi, is about the street he grew up on and the tumult both out in the open and behind closed doors.  “And friendship once it’s won/It’s won…it’s one… A heart that is broken/is a heart that is open.”  GRADE: B-

“Sleep Like A Baby Tonight”: U2 switches it up again on this slinky, electronic track that starts out with a hypnotic, programmed loop and benefits from a distorted, fuzzy switch up. “Tomorrow dawns like a suicide/ But you’re gonna sleep like a baby tonight,” Bono sings. Then he surprises again by going into a ragged falsetto. Probably the album’s most adventurous track musically. GRADE: B

“This Is Where You Can Reach Me Now”: Dedicated to The Clash’s Joe Strummer, the standout on the track is Edge’s piquant guitar work. Just as “The Miracle (Of Joey Ramone)” pays homage to the Ramones, this track is a tribute to The Clash guitarist-- a soldier, in Bono's eyes-- and, more specifically, the group’s classic, “Sandinista!” GRADE: B

“The Troubles”:  The title, of course, refers to what the fighting between the English and IRA was called, but this dreamy track refers to more than that. The lyrics address that issue obliquely but the song is more about how we give away our soul without even realizing it. Interesting choice to have backing vocals/refrain sung by a chorus reminiscent of Duran Duran’s “Come Undone.” GRADE: B

Dans un article paru hier dans le Irish Times, Bono revient sur la génèse de Songs Of Innocence.
U2Achtung vous propose de retrouver ci-dessous l'intégralité de la traduction de l'article.

Dans cette longue interview le chanteur revient sur les intentions du groupe avec ce treizième album, sur la présence très forte du souvenir dans sa mère, et sur les jeunes années des quatre paddies, dans le Dublin des années 70. Ce n'est pas tout : il aborde également le sentiment qu'il a sur le groupe, la collaboration avec Apple, le prochain album (déjà !) et la tournée à venir.

Une interview touchante et intéressante, qui permet de voir cet album sous un angle différent.


Le Dublin de Bono : 'Loin de chez moi'

Au moment où U2 luttait pour boucler leur nouvel album, ils ont été chercher leur inspiration dan le Dublin des années 1970, un endroit empli d'une violence invisible, le lieu d'origine d'une scène musicale new-wave et d'un groupe d'ami qui n'étaient pas encore U2. « On a remué beaucoup de merde », raconte Bono.


Bono se penche vers moi de sorte que nos nez se touchent presque, et il change, seul, « La vie commence par le premier regard, le premier baiser et la première danse, on se demande tous pourquoi on est là, dans la Crystall Ballroom sous le chandelier...Nous sommes les fantômes de l'amour et nous hantons cet endroit, dans la salle de danse aux lumières de cristal, tout le monde m'accompagne ce soir ,tout le monde sauf toi. ». C'est du chant traditionnel irlandais avec des lunettes.

« Il faut que je te dise quelque chose de vraiment bizarre à propos de cette chanson » dit-il. « Elle s'appelle The Crystal Ballroom, c'était le nom de McGonagles dans South Anne Street (démoli depuis). Toute une génération de dublinois y allaient pour danser, et beaucoup de couples se sont formés là-bas. Ma mère et mon père avaient l'habitude de danser ensemble au Crystal Ballroom, du coup la chanson que je viens de te chanter, qui n'est pas encore sortie, raconte comment je m'imagine sur la scène de McGonagle's avec ce nouveau groupe auquel j'appartiens, appelé U2...nous avons joué pas mal de concerts importants là-bas au début de notre carrière. Je regarde alors le public et je vois mes parents qui dansent ensemble tendrement au son de U2 jouant sur scène ».

Bono inspire longuement, et dit en parlant doucement : « Je viens de réaliser que ma mère est morte il y a 40 ans hier, et nous voici aujourd'hui à jouer notre nouvel album qui parle de Dublin, de ma famille, et de ce qui m'est arrivé quand j'étais adolescent.
« Ma mère est morte alors qu'elle assistait à l'enterrement de son père, elle a eu une rupture d'anévrisme. J'avais seulement 14 ans. Dans cette chanson, je chante « Tout le monde est là ce soir, tout le monde sauf toi ». Parce que je voudrais voir ma mère danser encore au Crystal Ballroom, et qu'elle voit e que son fils est devenu. »


Tout sur ma mère

Nous sommes dans une pièce sans fenêtre au QG d'Apple dans la Silicon Valley, dans la ville californienne de Cupertino. U2 vient de donner un coup de main au lancement d'une gamme de produits Apple, et on vient d'annoncer que leur nouvel album Songs Of Innocence était offert aux clients d'iTunes.

The Edge est là aussi. Il fouille dans son téléphone, trouve The CrystalBallroom et appuie sur la touche lecture. La pièce est silencieuse pendant que passe la chanson. Après une longue pause, un Bono visiblement secoué murmure : « Son esprit était avec nous aujourd'hui » .
Ce nouvel album de U2 pourrait être le Tout Sur Ma Mère de Bono. Sur la chanson Iris (Hold Me Close) (Iris est le prénom de sa mère), Bono raconte sa mort prématurée. « Cette douleur dans mon cœur Fait tellement partie de moi...Serre-moi fort et ne me lâche pas...J'ai ta vie au fond de moi...On se rencontre à nouveau ».
Alors qu'il se lève et arpente la pièce, il insiste sur un vers de la chanson « Je chante ce vers qui dit 'Iris qui se tient dans l'entrée, elle me dit que je peux tout faire' et c'est un vers typiquement maternel lorsqu'elle me dit 'Tu seras ma perte'. Mais ce n'était pas moi. Je n'ai pas causé sa perte. Je n'ai pas causé sa perte.
« L'image de la mère est tellement, tellement importante dans la musique rock. Montrez-moi un bon chanteur, et je vous montrerais quelqu'un qui a perdu sa mère tôt. Il y a Paul McCartney, il y a John Lennon. Prenez Bob Geldof et ce qui est arrivé à sa mère.
« Dans le hip-hop, à l'inverse, il s'agit surtout du père : être abandonné par son père et être élevé par une mère célibataire. Mais pour moi, il s'agit surtout de la mère. J'ai eu de la peine et de la colère pour ma mère. J'ai toujours de la peine et de la colère pour ma mère. J'ai canalisé ces émotions dans la musique, et je le fais toujours. J'ai très peu de souvenirs de ma mère, mais tous ceux qui me restent sont dans la chanson Iris ».

La mère de Bono l'a vu sur scène une seule fois, avant U2, mais Bono a dit que s'il pouvait revivre un seul et unique moment dans sa vie, alors il retournerait à l'instant où il chantait pour sa mère pour la première fois. Lorsqu'il avait 14 ans, Bono (juste Paul Hewson à l'époque), avait des rapports difficiles avec son frère Norman (de 8 ans son aîné) et son père, alors qu'il grandissait sur Cedarwood Road, à Glasnevin dans le nord de Dublin, juste après la mort de sa mère.
Orphelin de mère, Bono allait frapper chez ses voisins : les Rowen pour le déjeuner, les Hanvey à l'heure du thé. Derek Rowen allait devenir Guggi. Fionan Hanvey allait devenir le musicien Gavin Friday, des Virgin Prunes.
Dans le nouveau titre du groupe Cedarwood Road, Bono parle du cerisier en fleurs dans le jardin des Rowen. « Je cherchais une âme qui soit réelle. Puis je suis tombé sur toi, et ce cerisier en fleurs était une porte vers le soleil ». Dans les banlieues de Dublin des années 1970, le cerisier en fleur « était la chose la plus luxueuse qu'on pouvait imaginer » dit Bono.
The Edge se joint à la conversation, donnant quelques détail sur la politique du Comté de Dublin en matière de cerisiers. Je n'ai pas la moindre idée de comment il peut savoir tout ça.


Finglas, Cabra, le SFX
Songs Of Innocence, c'est U2 qui essaie de retrouver ses racines d'adolescents de la fin des années 70 à Dublin, sa scène musicale new-wave qui tournait autour de McGonagles, du Dandelion Market et des virées bizarres au SFX ou au Top Hat, à Dun Laoghaire.

« Il s'agit de nous, nous demandant ce qui nous a donné envie d'être dans un groupe de rock au tout début, des personnes qui gravitent autour du groupe et de nos premiers voyages, géographiques, spirituels et sexuels. C'était difficile et cela a pris des années. Disons-le ainsi : on a brassé beaucoup de merde », dit Bono.
Avec des chansons parlant de Finglas, d'aller voir les Ramones jouer au Cabra Grand, et de prendre le bus jusqu'au pour aller voir les Clash jouer au Trinity College, cet album semble à des années-lumières de leur dernier. D'une certaine manière, il l'est.
Quand Bono s'est confié au Irish Times au moment de la sortie de No Line On The Horizon en 2009, il a invité le reporter dans le bureau de sa maison de Dalkey, a ouvert les fenêtres et lui a montré la vue sur la Mer d’Irlande, un panorama dans lequel aucune ligne n'était visible à l'horizon (en tout cas ce jour-ci). La récession en Irlande empirait, et une star du rock multimillionnaire donnait à son album le titre de la vue magnifique dont il pouvait profiter tous les jours.
Mais l'image qu'a donnée le groupe à voir au monde entier cette semaine, depuis la fête de lancement Apple à Cupertino, a été très différente : un album type vinyl qui imite le style de la première sortie du groupe en 1979, l'EP U2 Three.


Les attentats de Dublin
En 2009, Bono m'avait montré des œuvres d'art que Frank Sinatra lui avait fait connaître. Aujourd'hui il parle de Superquinn à Finglas (le tout premier endroit où on lui a demandé un autographe, après la toute première apparition du groupe au Late Late Show), il parle du U2 qui faisait les premières parties des Stranglers au Top Hat (« Ils nous traitaient comme de la merde, alors on a volé tout leur vin et on s'est juré que lorsque notre heure de gloire arriverait, on traiterait tout le monde avec respect »), il parle aussi de prendre le bus jusqu'à Marlborough Street pour aller fouiner chez les disquaires du coin.

Cette expérience se retrouve dans la nouvelle chanson Raised By Wolves, une espèce de Sunday Bloody Sunday qui évoque les attentats de 1974. « Les bombes étaient programmées pour exploser toutes à la même heure, un vendredi soir à 17H30 », raconte-t-il. « A cette heure-là, en 1974, je me serais trouvé au magasin Golden Discs dans Marlborough Street, juste à l'angle d'où les bombe sont explosé. Mais ce jour-là j'étais allé à l'école en vélo, alors je n'ai pas pris le bus pour aller en ville comme d'habitude ».

Mais cet album n'est pas empreint de nostalgie. Bono se souvient aussi de la violence et des raclées infligées aux membres de U2 et à leur copain des Virgin Prunes. « Je ne parle pas tant des Black Catholics ici que de la façon que nous avions d'attirer la violence, à cause de notre look et des groupes que nous aimions », dit-il. « Gavin Friday avait l'habitude de se prendre des coups à la tête tout le temps. Mais à cette époque Gavin avait une grosse tête débile ».
« Je suis allé encore un peu plus loin et je me suis souvenu de toute la violence infligée aux femmes par leurs maris, les raclées que prenaient les enfants de la part de leur père et, surtout à cette époque, des prêtres qui abusaient des jeunes enfants ».
Et il y avait du dégoût musical de soi-même ; Quand Bono avait 17 ou 18 ans il pensait ne pas avoir la moindre chance d'être dans un groupe. « Parce que je chantais comme une fille. Je n'avais aucune chance de devenir un chanteur punk-rock ou un chanteur de rock avec ma voix de fille. », raconte-il. « Mais j'ai trouvé ma voix grâce à Joey Ramone, en l'entendant chanter une fois à Dublin. Joey avait aussi une espèce de voix de fille quand il chantait, et ça m'a permis de me lancer ».
Plus tôt ce matin, à la keynote Apple, ils ont joué leur nouveau titre The Miracle (of Joey Ramone) ; qui a transporté tous les techos de Cupertino au Cabra Grand, qu'ils le connaissent ou pas.


J'aimerais qu'on soit un meilleur groupe
Le dégoût musical est toujours là. « Honnêtement, j'aimerais qu'on soit un meilleur groupe. J'aimerais qu'on soit un groupe plus talentueux. La raison pour laquelle nous avons mis des années à faire cet album, c'est ça », dit Bono.

The Edge précise : « En tant que groupe, nous avons toujours balancé entre la puissance et le bruit. Mais maintenant U2 a énormément de zones sombres. Il ne s'agit plus de puissance, ce qui est bien, ou de bruit, ce qui est mal. Il faut savoir quand ça ne fonctionne pas entre nous, et la chose la plus destructrice est d'avoir presque réussi. »
« Il s'agit également de l'insoutenable humilité dont je dois faire preuve en ce moment », dit Bono. « Le fait que je nous pense incapable d'atteindre l'excellence. Jimmy Iovine, un ancien producteur de U2, m'a dit quelque chose de très dur. Il m'a dit 'Tu est très loin de chez toi'. Et ça m'a fait mal. Je vis à Dalkey, amis je suis de Cedarwood Road, et je sais ce qu'il voulait me dire lorsqu'il a dit ça. Ça m'a vraiment mis mal à l'aise d'entendre ça. C'est précisément la raison pour laquelle cet album est centré sur Dublin. »

Albums, argent et tournées

Le deuxième album
Bono explique qu'un petit frère à Songs Of Innocence, baptisé Songs Of Experience, va bientôt sortit. « On va collaborer avec Apple pendant un petit moment sur des trucs très sympas, et Songs Of Experience devrait être bientôt prêt. Je sais que j'ai déjà dit ce genre de chose auparavant »...

Le fin mot de l'histoire
Contrairement aux annonces disant que U2 avait donné Songs Of Innocence à Apple afin qu'il soit distribué gratuitement, Bono confirme que le groupe a reçu de l'argent pour cette opération. « Nous avons été payés, dit-il. « Je ne crois pas à la musique gratuite. La musique est un sacrement. ».

La tournée
« La date de la prochaine tournée de U2 n'est pas encore définitivement fixée, mais ce sera l'an prochain »explique Bono. « Il nous faut de bonnes idées pour pouvoir repartir sur la route en live. Attendez-vous à quelque chose de nouveau, quelque chose de frais ».

LETTRE DE BONO

09 September 2014
'Remember Us?'
A letter from Bono, on the arrival 'of our new baby' - Songs of Innocence.

'Hello, bonjour, ciao, hola, hallo, zdravo, dobar dan, Dia duit, hæ, hej,hei, cześć, olá, ćao, namaste, sawatdee, jambo, pozdravi, Γεια σου, привіт, שלום, مرحبا, こんにちは, , سلام, 你好, Привет….

Remember us? Pleased to announce myself, Edge, Adam and Larry have finally given birth to our new baby… Songs of Innocence. It’s been a while. We wanted to get it right for you/us. We just finished it last week and thanks to Apple and iTunes it’s with you today. That’s already amazing to me as it normally takes a few months to turn this stuff around.

Part of the DNA of this band has always been the desire to get our music to as many people as possible. In the next 24 hours, over a half a billion people are going to have Songs of Innocence… should they choose to check it out. That is so exciting. People who haven’t heard our music, or weren’t remotely interested, might play us for the first time because we’re in their library. Country fans, hip hop afficionados from east LA, electro poppers from Seoul, Bhangra fans from New Delhi, Highlifers in Accra… might JUST be tempted to check us out, even for a moment. What a mind blowing, head scratching, 21st century situation. Over 500 million people… that’s a billion ears. And for the people out there who have no interest in checking us out, look at it this way… the blood, sweat and tears of some Irish guys are in your junk mail.

You’ll have noticed the album is free to U2.com’ers from the band. It’s also free to everyone on iTunes thanks to Apple. To celebrate the ten year anniversary of our iPod commercial, they bought it as a gift to give to all their music customers. Free, but paid for. Because if no-one's paying anything for it, we’re not sure “free” music is really that free. It usually comes at a cost to the art form and the artist… which has big implications, not for us in U2, but for future musicians and their music... all the songs that have yet to be written by the talents of the future… who need to make a living to write them.

We’re collaborating with Apple on some cool stuff over the next couple of years, innovations that will transform the way music is listened to and viewed. We’ll keep you posted. If you like Songs of Innocence,  stay with us for Songs of Experience. It should be ready soon enough… although I know I’ve said that before…

I hope after listening to our new long player a few times, you’ll understand why it took so long. We really went there… it’s a very, very personal album. Apologies if that gets excruciating… actually, I take that back. No apologies if it gets excruciating. What’s the point in being in U2 if you can’t go there?
There is no end to LOVE.'
BONO

Life begins with the first glance, the first kiss at the first dance, all of us are wondering why we’re here, in the Crystal Ballroom underneath the chandelier . . . We are the ghosts of love and we haunt this place, in the ballroom of crystal lights, everyone is here with me tonight, everyone but you.”

“I need to tell you something really weird about this song,” Bono told the Irish Times. “It’s called The Crystal Ballroom, which used to be the name of McGonagles in South Anne Street [now knocked down]. A whole generation of Dubliners would go to the Crystal Ballroom for dances, and many couples first met there. My mother and father used to dance together in the Crystal Ballroom, so that song I just sang you, which hasn’t been released yet, is me imagining I’m on the stage of McGonagles with this new band I’m in called U2 – and we did play a lot of our important early gigs there. And I look out into the audience and I see my mother and father dancing romantically together to U2 on the stage.”

I have just realised that my mother died 40 years ago yesterday, and here we are today playing our new album about Dublin, which is about my family and what happened to me as a teenager.

“My mother died when she was at her father’s funeral. She had a cerebral aneurysm. I was only 14. And in this song I am singing, “Everyone is here tonight, everyone but you.” And it’s me wanting to see my mother dance again in the Crystal Ballroom and for her to see what happened to her son.”

In the song “Iris (Hold Me Close)” Bono sings about his mother’s untimely death.

“The ache in my heart is so much a part of who I am . . . Hold me close and don’t let me go . . . I’ve got your life inside of me . . . We’re meeting up again.”

“I sing this verse which has ‘Iris standing in the hall, she tells me I can do it all,’ and then there’s a typical mother’s line when she says to me, ‘You’ll be the death of me.’ But it wasn’t me. I wasn’t the death of her. I was not the death of her,” says U2’s frontman.

“The mother is so, so important in rock music. Show me a great singer and I’ll show you someone who lost their mother early on. There’s Paul McCartney, there’s John Lennon. Look at Bob Geldof and what happened to his mother. In hip hop, by contrast, it’s all about the father – being abandoned by the father and being brought up by a single mother. But for me it’s all about the mother. I had rage and grief for my mother. I still have rage and grief for my mother. I channelled those emotions in music, and I still do. I have very few memories of my mother, but all of them are in the song Iris.”

As a young teenager, Bono, who back then was just Paul Hewson, had strained relationships with his older brother Norman and his father after his mother’s death. Growing up on Cedarwood Road, in Glasnevin, in north Dublin, Bono would knock on the doors of his neighbors the Rowens at lunchtime and the Hanveys for teatime.

Derek Rowen would go on to become the artist Guggi. Fionán Hanvey would become the musician Gavin Friday, of the Virgin Prunes, the Irish Times reports.

The new song ‘Cedarwood Road’ describes the cherry blossom tree in the Rowens’ garden.

“I was looking for a soul that’s real. Then I ran into you, and that cherry blossom tree was a gateway to the sun.”

Bono says that in the Dublin suburbs of the 1970s, a cherry blossom tree “seemed to be the most luxurious thing.”

About the new album, he says: “It’s us trying to figure out why we wanted to be in a band in the first place, the relationships around the band and our first journeys – geographically, spiritually and sexually. It was tough and it took years. Put it this way: a lot of sh*t got dragged up.”


The song ‘Raised By Wolves’ remembers the Dublin bombings of 1974.

“The bombs were set to go off at the same time on a Friday evening, at 5.30pm,” says Bono. “At that time on Fridays in 1974 I would have been at the Golden Discs shop in Marlborough Street, just around the corner from where the bombs exploded. But that day I had cycled to school so didn’t get the bus into town afterwards as usual.”

He also recalls the violence and the beating given to the band’s members and their friends in the Virgin Prunes.

“I’m not really talking about the Black Catholics here so much as how we just attracted violence for the way we looked and bands we liked,” he says. “Gavin Friday used to get his head kicked in regularly. But then Gavin’s always had a stupid, big head.

Then I went a bit further and remembered all the violence meted out to women by their husbands, the beatings children experienced from their fathers and how, at that time particularly, priests were sexually abusing young children.”

Dave has a special place in U2 folklore - not only has he been playing their music since the late 1970's but every time a new album arrives, he gets to air the lead track first. So if you haven't got time to listen to the whole of Sunday's show, here's eight things we learned from Dave's chat with Bono.

The release of Songs of Innocence via iTunes was the technological equivalent of fly-posting the band’s lyrics all over Dublin back in the 1970s.
'Mrs Edge, our first roadie,' recalled Bono, 'Used to drive us in the VW Beetle in the middle of the night with rolls of wallpaper with the lyrics of our songs, and all sorts of things on, and we used to fly-post all over Dublin, aged 18 or 19. The whole point of being in a band, in the days of punk rock, was to be in your face. Even if you weren’t looking for us, we were there.'
With Songs of Innocence, he explains: 'People who would not normally be exposed to our music have got a chance to listen to it. Whether those songs will be important to them in a week’s time, we don’t know. But they’ve got a chance - and that’s got to be exciting for a band that’s been around for as long as we have.'

Songs Of Innocence is not an experimental album. It's about songs.
'Why is it not like Zoo Station? Why is it not like Zooropa? It is not an experimental album. It is easy for me to blow your mind sonically. We can play with the desk and set off fireworks - U2 can do that all day. But this is about songs, which is a much more difficult thing to pull off... The production is not what we were about here. We were about getting out of the way of the songs.'

‘Iris’, written about Bono’s mother, contains a name-check for Kraftwerk.
'My mother [died] just as I was discovering girls. One of the girls I was discovering was Ali... she arrived at Mount Temple in the same month. The first lover’s gift I gave Ali was a Kraftwerk album called Man Machine. So I referred to that.' ‘[It was you made me your man/Machine.’]

The new album was released, through sheer coincidence, 40 years to the day that Iris died.
'Sometimes the things that have the most powerful influence over you are from way back. You’re looking at the night sky and those beautiful stars - a lot of them are gone, even though you’re still in their light. The idea that [Songs of Innocence] went out the same day, 40 years after she left us, is kind of magic.'

'Invisible', released earlier this year to support the fight against AIDS, will feature on the physical album, coming in October.  
‘Invisible’ is about U2‘s first ever journey to London. In fact, the album is “all about first journeys. California’ is about first time in LA and all of that. ‘Song for Someone’ is about the awkwardness of falling in love and sex...'

The band needed a woman’s touch on this album.
It arrived courtesy of Swedish singer-songwriter Lykke Li, who provides the hypnotic vocal to the chorus of ‘The Troubles’ (described as 'an uncomfortable song about domestic violence').  'She puts us all under a spell with her music. We needed a feminine spirit; she was the right one.'

Expect a companion album, Songs of Experience, to arrive a little sooner than this one.
'I think Songs of Experience will come a lot quicker,' says Bono. 'But to explain the wait: we wanted to keep pushing up the level. We wanted songs that would stand up if you played them on an acoustic guitar or piano... eternal songs, the ones that people hold onto ... these songs are rare, they’re like miracles, and they’re almost impossible. If you hear ‘Every Breaking Wave’ played on a piano, you just fall over. And if it doesn’t move you, you’re either deaf or dead, or you should be.'

Bono challenged Steve Jobs to transform iTunes.  A visually captivating digital format is in development.
'Five years ago I began a conversation with Steve Jobs. I said to him, ‘For a person who cares about how things look and feel more than anyone else in the world, how is it that iTunes looks like a spreadsheet? Why can’t we dip into artwork like we used to before with the gatefold sleeve? Why can’t I disappear into a world created by artists? So he made a promise to me that we would work on this together, and we have ... It’s not ready yet for Songs of Innocence; it will be ready for Songs of Experience.  It’s a new format. I’m very excited about that.'

Cover Story
The band have completed the artwork for next month's physical release of Songs of Innocence.

The visuals reflect the new songs and their inspiration in the early years of U2 as teenagers in Dublin.

Glen Luchford's striking cover image of Larry Mullen Jr, protecting his 18year old son, resonates with the band's iconic 1979 debut album Boy - and the album War, four years later.

Both featured the face of a child, Peter Rowen, the younger brother of Guggi, Bono's childhood friend growing up on Cedarwood Road.

'We've always been about community in U2, about family and friends,' explains Bono. 'Songs Of Innocence is the most intimate album we've ever made. With this record we were looking for the raw, naked and personal, to strip everything back.'

The idea of the unique relationship between a parent and child, the image of a father and son, came from the band. The shoot with Larry and his son was initially an experiment but everyone loved it as a visual metaphor for the record.

If you know the album, reflects Bono, you'll see the themes in the visual language, how 'holding on to your own innocence is a lot harder than holding on to someone else's.'

The physical release of Songs of Innocence on October 13th comes in three formats which are available for pre-order here and through Island Records, and U2.com.
Pre-order digital here.

Deluxe, 2 CD Format which comes with 2 x 16 page booklets, the 11 track album on CD1 plus additional tracks on CD2 including a 6-song acoustic session along with Lucifer's Hands, The Crystal Ballroom, The Troubles (Alternative Version) and Sleep Like A Baby Tonight (Alternative Perspective Mix by Tchad Blake).

2 LP 180gram White Vinyl Format featuring the 11 track album on sides 1, 2 & 3 with bonus track The Crystal Ballroom 12" Mix on side 4.

Single CD Format with a 24-page booklet along with the 11 track album.

Stories Of Innocence

Songs Of Innocence is inspired by the band's earliest days in Dublin – the gigs they went to, the places they hung out in, the friends they made.

That story of U2's emergence in the late 1970's  is nowhere captured better than in North Side Story, the special Hot Press publication for U2.com subscribers.

Here's some of the ways in which Songs of Innocence and North Side Story are a perfect combination.

1. Playing Ramones songs to the music press.
'After the Ramones', writes Bono, in the sleeve notes to Songs of Innocence, 'I could try and be myself as a singer.' Seeing Joey Ramone sing ('like a girl') had inspired the U2 frontman to find his own style, but when influential Hot Press staffer Bill Graham came to a band rehearsal in the earliest days, it's fair to say they weren't entirely being themselves. Paul McGuinness recalls the incident in North Side Story.
'They played some songs which Bill immediately spotted were Ramones songs, which was a bit embarrassing,' he recalls. 'But he was impressed all the same. It is well documented that it was Bill who subsequently introduced me to the band and told me that I was going to manage them.'

2. Within spitting distance of the Stranglers
'We were in love with the punk rock scene', as it says in the SOI sleeve notes. The teenage band members were in the house to see the Ramones and the Clash in Dublin during those formative years, and 'The Miracle' and 'This is Where You Can Reach Me Now' (see below) pay homage to Joey Ramone and Joe Strummer respectively.
But in October '78, the band grabbed the chance to play their own part in the emerging scene, scoring a  prized support slot for The Stranglers, at the Top Hat, Dun Laoghaire. Larry had been visiting (promoter) Pat Egan's record shop in Duke Street, drumming home the message that U2 were worthy of a bigger stage. 'He was a very polite as well as a very persistent young fella,' recalls Egan in North Side Story. 'So when The Stranglers' people told me they weren't bringing a support act with them I thought, 'Okay, I'll give these U2 guys a go.'
Turns out The Stranglers were late for their sound-check, so U2 didn't get one. Edge's guitar kept cutting out, and the 1,800 Stranglers fans didn't just hurl spit but lit cigarettes at the band. Rumours were, too, that U2 had upset the headliners by stealing beer from their dressing room. Yet still, the Hot Press review - which you can read in North Side Story - was kind: 'They won't look back at it as one of their most satisfactory sets... but the gig was a giant step. Given the circumstances, they've acquitted themselves with pride.'

3. Complete Surrender
'I can vividly remember when I first saw the Clash,' recalls Edge. 'It was in Dublin in October 1977 at a 1200 capacity venue at Trinity College. It had a massive impact around here. This wasn't just entertainment. It was a life-and-death thing. They made it possible for us to take our band seriously. They showed us what you needed. And it was all about heart.' As 'This Is Where You Can Reach Me Now' puts it, 'We signed our lives away/Complete surrender...'

4. Ireland in the 1970s, a tough place to grow up in.
'It was a war zone in my teens,' sings Bono on Cedarwood Road and lifelong friend, Gavin Friday, 'who lived at the top of the road', concurs. 'It felt like this wasteland,' he recalls, in North Side Story. 'The way I remember it, there was incredible violence everywhere in Dublin at the time. The amount of beatings I got was incredible, even going down to the bus...'
He remembers going to see U2 at the Baggot Inn, Dublin, when 'this crowd that called themselves the Black Catholics came and started throwing stuff at the stage. I think Bono jumped down and went for them ... It was always Bono and Guggi that defended me.' Cedarwood Road itself was 'full of people I still admire and love', Bono writes in the sleevenotes. 'Like Gavin Friday.'

5. 'All of us are wondering why we're here...
...In the crystal ballroom underneath the chandelier.'  The map 'North And South Of The River:Wandering In U2's Dublin', published with North Side Story,  carries dozens of notable landmarks, including the location of McGonagles in South Anne Street, originally known as The Crystal Ballroom. A generation of people went to dance there, including Bono's parents. 'The song, 'The Crystal Ballroom', is me imagining I'm on the stage of McGonagles with this new band I'm in called U2 – and we did play a lot of our important early gigs there - and I look out into the audience and I see my mother and father dancing romantically together to U2 on the stage.'

6. The cover star of Boy was also one of the neighbours
Just along the way from the Hewsons on Cedarwood Road lived the Rowens. 'That family were like an Old Testament tribe,' Bono writes in the sleeve notes. 'I learned a lot from them.' His close friend Derek Rowen - aka Guggi - was one of the clan (see below). But one of the younger Rowen siblings, Peter,  also came to  prominence in U2 iconography - being photographed, as a five-year-old, for the cover of Boy, and later War, and appearing in the video for Two Hearts Beat as One.
'Bono was over in our house quite a lot,' Peter remembers in North Side Story. 'I was only a little kid, but one of my older brothers said he used to eat us out of jam sandwiches. His mum died when he was quite young, so his own house was often empty and he'd come around for a bit of company.'

7. Early artistic influences on Cedarwood Road
Guggi has been friend and confidente throughout U2's career. 'I painted with Bono from childhood,' he reminisces, in North Side Story. 'His Dad set up a couple of little tables for us in the garage of the semi-detached house on Cedarwood Road, where he lived, and we would go out to the garage and draw and paint. Bono's dad, who himself was a painter, would give us critique and watch our progress.'
Guggi went on to become, in the words of Hot Press Editor Niall Stokes, 'one of the most successful artists of the modern generation in Ireland.'
'While the atmosphere of stagnation in Dublin was profound for boys growing into, and becoming, young men, underneath all that, currents of far-reaching change were swirling,' Stokes remembers. 'Gradually clawing their way out of the anonymity of their North side suburban upbringing, U2 and their cohorts would in many respects come to embody what that change was all about.'
Painting remained an important part of the artistic relationship for the former Cedarwood Road residents. 'Later on, during the making of the Joshua Tree,' writes Guggi, 'the band had this huge house in the Dublin hills with lots of spare rooms where they had set their studio up, and Bono asked myself and Gav [Friday] whether we would go there and paint, and we did. The three of us had painted on a Wednesday night for a number of years.'

8. Stronger than Fear
Another of the Rowen clan, Andy ('Guck Pants Delaney, we used to call him,' writes Bono in the sleeve notes) inspired the song Raised By Wolves. He was in Talbot Street, locked in his dad's van, on May 17th 1974 when a bomb went off, killing 33 people. As the lyric goes: 'I'm in a white van as a red sea covers the ground.'
Introducing the book, Niall Stokes describes how the artistic and cultural ferment in 1970's Dublin played a crucial role in helping young people counter both the social deprivation and the political troubles. 'The sectarianism and isolationism which gripped the country for... 50 years had a shockingly negative, repressive effect,' he says. Yet at this pivotal moment in the city's history, 'a less conventional breed of artists and activists - painters, poets, playwrights, actors and musicians gathered [at haunts such as the Project Arts Centre] in a spirit of experimentation and adventure.'

9. Blood orange sunset brings you to your knees.
The sleeve notes again: 'LA seemed like the polar opposite of Dublin. We love being somewhere between extremes. I remember Edge, Larry, Adam and me getting off a plane in California and looking at each other like 'This is better than the movies' and that was just the airport!'
It was the spring of 1981, when U2 landed in California for their first ever gig in LA. And Charlie McNally,  Dublin exile living in LA, was on hand to watch the band launch their US invasion, and report back for Hot Press. The band played the Country Club, he reported, 'the most prestigious venue in Los Angeles' and  'the showcase gig in LA of everyone from local hot shots Naughty Sweeties to Ry Cooder.' U2 'took the place by storm.'
A young Paul Hewson had asked McNally two years earlier if U2 could play support 'for nothin'' to his own band, at the Stardust [nightclub] in Artane. 'Little did I think that only two years later I'd witness that same band playin' their asses off in Sunny Califonria,' wrote McNally. 'Tonight, I had the pleasure of observing a tiny paragraph in Irish rock music history - U2's debut in LA.'

Avec ce premier single de leur treizième album, les irlandais de U2 rendent hommage à Joey Ramone, le leader des Ramones. Groupe punk des années 70, les Ramones ont influencés un grand nombre d'artistes dont les Clash, Green Day et biensûr U2.

The Miracle of Joey Ramone revient sur la jeunesse de Bono et de ses premiers émois en découvrant Joey et son groupe changeant le cours de l'Histoire du Rock.

Bono cheats death after private jet door falls off: U2 singer 'extremely lucky' after plane's tailgate becomes detached during flight to Berlin with four friends

A source close to the singer told the Irish Daily Mail: ‘He was extremely lucky, the plane could have gone down. About an hour into the journey they heard a big thud coming from the rear of the plane.
‘They were startled for a bit but they continued on and made the descent into Berlin airport. When they landed they were horrified to learn that the compartment at the rear of the plane had completely detached.
‘The entire door along with Bono and his companions’ luggage had fallen out mid-air. They don’t know if the door and the contents landed over water or land but they were extremely lucky. They were at an altitude where anything could have happened and they are all feeling very lucky to be alive.’

BERLIN, Germany — Bono says a mid-air mishap in which the luggage-compartment door fell off his Learjet into the woods of Germany was a "bit scary" — but his real concern is the animals that were down below. "The worry is where is the door, where are those bags?" the U2 rock star said on the red carpet at an awards ceremony in Berlin on Thursday night. "You know there may be a few cows or sheep in the German countryside with a very sore head. We trust that nobody was hurt because we would have heard by now and that was actually our first concern, cause we were fine."

The singer and four friends were taking the private jet from Dublin to Berlin on Wednesday and were about 25 minutes from the airport when "there was a kind of bang," he said. "We thought we'd hit turbulence — maybe the wheel landing gear was coming down or something — but it was 25 minutes. The real relief was that the particular design meant that the plane did not decompress." German aviation officials say the pilots didn't know until they landed that the rear hatch, which was about 32 inches by 40 inches, had detached from the aircraft and fallen 15,000 to 20,000 feet, along with two suitcases. The incident remains under investigation.

L’avion du chanteur Bono perd une porte en plein vol


Le chanteur du groupe U2 a frôlé la mort ce mercredi 12 novembre. Selon les informations du Irish Daily Mail, relayées en France par Le Figaro, une partie du jet privé de Bono s’est détachée en plein vol, entre Dublin et Berlin.

Le leader de U2 pourra dire qu’il a échappé au pire. La porte arrière de l’avion de Bono s’est en effet détachée en plein vol, emportant avec elle un morceau de hayon de la soute à bagages. « Environ une heure après le décollage, ils ont entendu un bruit sourd venant de l'arrière de l'appareil » raconte un proche du rockeur. « Ils ont été surpris à bord de l'avion mais ont poursuivi la descente vers l'aéroport de Berlin. Quand ils sont arrivés, ils ont été horrifiés d'apprendre que le compartiment à l'arrière de l'avion s'était complètement détaché » a-t-il poursuivi. Le chanteur et les autres passagers du vol auraient ainsi perdu tous leurs bagages.

Selon les autorités allemandes, « à aucun moment, l'avion n'a risqué le crash ». Une enquête a toutefois été ouverte pour définir les causes de l’accident. Heureusement pour les passagers, la soute étant en dehors de la zone sous pression de la cabine, il n’y a pas eu de perte de pression. Il n’a pas été nécessaire d’utiliser les masques à oxygène.

La star irlandaise de rock Bono, leader du groupe U2, va être opéré après s'être blessé au bras dans une chute de vélo à Central Park, à New York, a annoncé le groupe dimanche. La déclaration des membres du groupe (Edge, Adam et Larry) n'apporte pas détails sur la blessure ou l'opération à venir.
Blessure au bras à Central Park


Ils ont cependant annoncé l'annulation de leur participation prévue une semaine dans l'émission humoristique «Tonight Show» sur la chaîne de télévision américaine NBC. «Il semble que nous devrons faire notre résidence au Tonight Show une autre fois. Il nous manque un homme», ont déclaré les musiciens.
«Bono s'est blessé au bras dans une chute de vélo à Central Park et doit être opéré. Nous sommes sûrs qu'il sera complètement rétabli bientôt, donc nous serons de retour! Merci beaucoup à Jimmy Fallon [animateur de l'émission] et à l'équipe de l'émission pour leur compréhension», ont-ils écrit.

The New York City surgeon that operated on Bono has detailed just how serious Bono's injuries were following a bicycle accident Sunday in Central Park.

Rolling Stone spoke with Dr. Dean Lorich, who performed the five-hour surgery on Bono Sunday at New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center. Lorich paints a pretty gruesome picture of Bono's condition, which includes broken bones around his eye and left arm/shoulder, not to mention bone
http://blog.lesoir.be/frontstage/2014/11/19/bono-chute-a-velo-u2-tremble/







breaking through his skin. Bono had a second surgery on Monday for a broken left pinky finger.

Dr. Lorich says Bono "will require intensive and progressive therapy, however a full recovery is expected."

The full, official statement from Dr. Lorich as given to Rolling Stone is below.

On November 16th, Bono was involved in a high energy bicycle accident when he attempted to avoid another rider.  Presented as a Trauma Alert to New York Presbyterian/Weill Cornell's Emergency Department, his Trauma Work-up at that time included multiple X-rays and CAT scans showed injuries that include:

1. Left facial fracture involving the orbit of his eye.

2. Left scapula (shoulder blade) fracture in three separate pieces.

3. Left compound distal humerus fracture where the bone of his humerus was driven though his skin and the bone was in six different pieces. He was taken emergently to the operating room for a five-hour surgery Sunday evening where the elbow was washed out and debrided, a nerve trapped in the break was moved and the bone was repaired with three metal plates and 18 screws.

4. One day later, he had surgery to his left hand to repair a fracture of his 5th metacarpal.

He will require intensive and progressive therapy, however a full recovery is expected.

Bono, le leader du groupe U2, a subi une opération de plus de cinq heures dimanche à New York après un accident de vélo à Central Park. Les dégâts causés par la chute sont plus graves que prévus.



Bono l'a échappé belle. Le leader du groupe U2 était tombé à vélo dimanche dans Central Park alors que U2 se préparait à chanter tous les soirs cette semaine dans l'émission «The Tonight Show» à New York. Ces performances ont été annulées, avait annoncé le groupe sur leur site internet. L'accident serait survenu alors que l'Irlandais de 52 ans a tenté d'éviter un deuxième cycliste, a expliqué Dean Lorich, chirurgien orthopédique au New York Presbiterian hospital, au magazine «Rolling Stone».

Après la collision, Bono a été opéré pendant 5 heures. Il souffrait de blessures au visage, au niveau de l'orbite de l'oeil, trois fractures à l'épaule gauche, au coude gauche et l'un de ses os du bras brisé en plusieurs morceaux qui avait traversé sa peau a dû être réparé avec trois plaques de métal attachées par 18 vis. Lundi, le chanteur a dû subir une seconde intervention pour réparer l'auriculaire de sa main gauche. «Il devra suivre une rééducation intensive et progressive, mais il devrait retrouver l'intégralité de ses moyens», a ajouté le médecin.

LA NOUVELLE TOURNÉE RETARDÉE ?

On ne sait pas de quelle manière cet accident va affecter les projets de concert du groupe. U2 prévoyait une grande tournée l'an prochain, la première depuis leur précédente qui s'était achevée en 2011 après deux années de concerts gigantesques. Pour le moment, la seule date du groupe annoncée est le 14 décembre: U2 doit jouer à Los Angeles dans le cadre d'une soirée de charité organisée chaque année par une radio.

Depuis la sortie du dernier album de U2 «Songs of Innocence» en octobre dernier, la chance ne semble plus sourire à Bono. Le 17 octobre dernier, il annonçait souffrir depuis une vingtaine d'années d’un glaucome -une maladie dégénérative de l'oeil, qui entraîne une perte progressive de la vision, jusqu'à parfois la cécité- qui l'oblige à porter des lunettes de soleil la plupart du temps. Le 12 novembre, l'arrière de l'avion dans lequel il voyageait de Dublin à Berlin s'est détaché en plein vol. Un accident rare, qui aurait pu coûter la vie à la voix de U2.

Band Aid 30″: l’affreux projet de Geldof, Bono et One Direction contre Ebola
Alors que depuis sa sortie le 17 novembre, le single “Do They Know It’s Christmas” interprété par le Band Aid 30 et son leader Bob Geldof est critiqué de toutes parts, Lily Allen raconte avoir refusé d’y participer, trouvant le projet bien trop “condescendant”.

The Edge provided fans with an update on Bono’s biking accident and injuries while speaking with KROQ’s Kevin and Bean on Wednesday morning to announce U2’s world tour and the news that U2 wouldn't be performing at the radio station's Almost Acoustic Christmas concert.

Edge confirmed that Bono’s accident occurred on Sunday morning, Nov. 16, while he was cycling in Central Park as part of his workout regime, and that the injuries were akin to being in a car crash. "There were a lot of people in the park and he just wasn’t paying enough attention," Edge said. "He was going fast down a bit of a hill and somebody come out onto the cycle way. He swerved to avoid them and just went straight over the handlebars.”

After saying that Bono was made of tough stuff, Edge described the injuries: “The poor guy. Basically his left elbow was shattered, so a lot of the work was reconstructing the joint and putting in wires and plates. He showed us an X-ray a couple of days later and it looked like a miniature of the Eiffel Tower was in his elbow. Then the same had to happen with the fracture of his pinkie. The joint there was totally messed up. That needed a bone graft. Then the most vulnerable was his upper back and scapula. They couldn’t put any plates in there. They decided to not do surgery. So, basically he’s got to be very still and not move around until that’s healed.”

Edge said Bono’s doing physical therapy twice a day to keep his joints active.

Because of Bono being sidelined, the band almost canceled out on the World AIDS Day event in New York City, but didn't because it was a charity event, Times Square was shut down for the night, and they were fortunate to have a little help with lead vocals. “It was an amazing experience, but it feels a little bit like we were cheating on Bono,” he said.

Edge told Kevin and Bean that he has never performed without Bono. “It never happens and it’s not an experience I want to repeat again.” He reiterated that as one of the reasons why U2 was pulling out of the KROQ Acoustic Christmas event. “We can’t have somebody fronting U2 for a whole show. That would be ridiculous.”

prochain single :






Le rockeur irlandais Bono serait à nouveau sur pied après avoir subi une opération suite à une chute de vélo à New York.

Rappelons que le chanteur du groupe U2, tombé à Central Park en novembre dernier, a souffert de plusieurs fractures au bras gauche, au coude et au doigt, et qu’il a dû être opéré afin de se faire poser trois plaques en métal, ainsi que 18 vis dans le bras.

Du coup, il n'a pas pu monter sur scène avec son groupe lors du concert du World Aids Day à New York.

The Edge, le guitariste du groupe, avait d'ailleurs confié que son ami devrait rester allonger pendant deux mois, le temps que ses blessures cicatrisent, mais il semblerait que le chanteur prend du mieux plus vite que prévu, puisqu’il serait déjà sur ses deux pieds.

Les photos, prises les 13 et 14 décembre à Dublin, montrent Bono se promenant en ville avec le manteau couvrant son bras blessé.
