New U2 Album On The Way For March 2009

Welcome back, kids. We're here in San Francisco all bright eyed and bushy tailed from a few weeks off, so we hope you're ready to reimmerse yourself in some tasty HAD lovin'!

First up on the docket is the new record from U2. Sure, some of you will roll your eyes, and cite Bono's near-constant media exposure as being just about unbearable. And to some extent, we agree with you. That being said, we're not about to diss the artistic legacy that the band has, especially when they're collaborating with Eno, Lanois, and Lillywhite.

Their latest, No Line On The Horizon, teams up with that exact bunch to deliver he bands 12th studio album. Frankly, we're hoping it will be far more All That You Can't Leave Behind than it will be How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb. The band has a pretty solid history of delivering a killer album, and then a less admirable stepchild. If the pattern holds true, then we're solidly on track to get a killer album delivery.

According to an Interscope announcement, the record is on queue to drop on March 3rd in the US. As you may recall, some of the tracks famously leaked when Bono was listening a tad too loud in his apartment. Unfortunately, we missed the boat on that one, so we're going to have to wait for the record to give some insight. We're certainly looking forward to it.
