Bono and Larry have talked to U2.com about their work with Danny Lanois and Brian Eno in Fez, Morocco.
Lanois and Eno are known for their production work, but this time things are a little different as the two have joined the band to write songs, rather than produce. Says Larry: ‘It’s the first time we’ve worked with Brian and Dan in a purely songwriting capacity, so it’s very different, quite experimental and kind of liberating because of that…’ Here come the warm jets, anyone?
Bono is quick to add they don’t know where these songs will end up: ‘We have no plans for the music yet, we’re just going to make it until we can’t not put it out!’
