"U2 To Trance It Up On New Album"

Bono took time off from saving the world to illuminate - or horrify - U2's fan base by announcing that the Irish supergroup's new album will have a "trance" feel to it. Over the past few months, U2 has been working with Brian Eno in Africa and Bono is pleased with the results.

"Normally when you play a U2 tune, it clears the dance floor and that may not be true of this. There's some trance influences but there's some very hardcore guitar coming out of The Edge. Real molten metal," reportedly crows Bono. "It's not like anything we've ever done before, and we don't think it sounds like anything anyone else has done either."

We have faith in Bono's assessment; although the same things probably could have been said in advance of Zooropa.
