Bono isn’t sure when U2’s next album will be out. In a new interview, the singer said the band is waiting for drummer Larry Mullen Jr. to recover from surgery. He explained, “Starting work on new songs is somewhat tied to Larry’s situation. Could he commit to an album project? I don’t know.” Bono also said when they do finally get an album out, it has to be something special. He said, “I don’t think the world is waiting on the next U2 album. I think we have to give them a reason to be interested in it. I just want to write great tunes, because that’s where U2 started – with big choruses, clear ideas. And let’s go back there, but do it with some petrol and some matches.”
