In an exclusive interview with U2's guitarist the Edge, RollingStone.com reports that the Irish megastars are already in the studio working diligently on the follow-up to their Grammy-winning 2004 release, How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb.
"We're working on new songs and getting lost in the music," he said. "I don't think we're going to try and think too much about what we're going to do with it yet, we're just going to do a lot of writing and just see what gives. We're giving ourselves the luxury of just working on the songs. There's some amazing things coming through."
There were no more details revealed, but we reported a few weeks back that U2 is collaborating with super-producer Rick Rubin.
The Edge is also in the process of organizing his latest fund-raising initiative, Music Rising, an upcoming auction offering rare rock memorabilia. All proceeds generated from the auction will go to musicians affected by hurricanes Rita and Katrina. Who said that Bono was the band's only do-gooder?
