The album calls on the production talents of long-time collaborators Brian Eno and Danny Lanois, with additional production by Steve Lillywhite.

U2 are confirmed to perform their new single on The Brits on 18th February in London.

That ear-splitting shriek you just heard? Yep, that was me. You have to understand, U2 is my band-of-the-forever. The band I've loved since I was a little girl. I confess to having a massive crush on Bono. It has a lot to do with his Irish accent, I'm not going to lie, but mostly it's his singing and his lyrics.

To see the track listing, cover art, and hear the new song, go here. I am still listening to it, still deciding whether or not I like it, but I am super excited for the new album nevertheless.
