Official U2 Album News

Found this a few days ago. I guess it's time to start thinking about my U2 Tour plans!!!

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Irish rockers U2 have named their new album
"No Line On The Horizon," and will release it worldwide in early March,
their label said on Thursday.

The quartet's 12th studio album was originally expected to be released
by the end of this year, but the band announced in September that it
would keep writing more tunes. Recording took place in Morocco, Dublin,
New York and London.

Interscope Records will release "No Line On The Horizon"
internationally on March 2, and a day later in North America.

It marks the follow-up to "How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb," which was
released in late 2004 and went on to sell 9 million copies worldwide,
according to Interscope. It also garnered U2 their second album of the
year Grammy, following 1987's "The Joshua Tree."

The new album was produced by long-time collaborators Brian Eno and
Daniel Lanois, with additional production by Steve Lillywhite. Tunes
recorded in 2006 with producer Rick Rubin, the man behind Johnny Cash's
comeback, have been jettisoned.

Tour plans have not been announced. The "Vertigo" world tour for the
last album ran from March 2005 to December 2006.
