U2 mount songwriting sessions in Africa

Bono and co invite special guests to Morocco

U2 are writing new songs in Fez, Morocco.

The band have decamped to the African country with long-term production collaborators Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois, though the pair’s involvement so far has been strictly about song writing.

“It’s the first time we’ve worked with Brian and Dan in a purely songwriting capacity,” Larry Mullen Jr told U2.com. “So it’s very different, quite experimental and kind of liberating because of that.”

However the band are reluctant to say that the new tracks will be on the band’s next album, yet.

“We have no plans for the music yet,” explained Bono. “We’re just going to make it until we can’t not put it out!”
