Meanwhile, U2 recently spoke out about how frontman Bono’s recent health scare helped shape the songwriting on their long-awaited new album. The band revealed that the “personal and political apocalypse came together”, when things took a hit after Bono experienced a “serious” but unspecified health scare.
“Edge wasn’t fibbing when he said that we had to stop and take account of what was going on in the world,” Bono told Q. “He just didn’t want to mention what was going on in my world. I don’t want to get too into the details of it, for fear of the melodramatic reality TV kerfuffle. A lot of people have these moments. I’ve had a few. Not quite at this level.”
Speaking of the impact of Bono’s scare, guitarist The Edge added: “It was serious enough that he genuinely had a major fright. But where that brought him to as a writer was an amazing place.”
