U2 Strikes A Pose ( photographed by John Wright U2 is still hard at work on their follow up to 2009’s No Line on the Horizon, according to U2 bassist Adam Clayton who gave small details on how the album is coming along and when folks can expect the album.

While appearing Irish station 98 FM’s Dermot and Dave show Adam had the following to say about the new U2 album: “We are still at it. We hope to have it finished very, very soon. And it will be out, oh . . . sometime early next year,” Clayton said. “But it’s a very exciting bunch of songs right at the moment . . . it’s just about to be finished, so it’s hard to know which way they’ll go.”

With regards to the length of the album and its sound Clayton said, “I think it’s a bit of a return to U2 of old, but with the maturity, if you like, of the U2 of the last 10 years. It’s a combination of those two things and it’s a really interesting hybrid,” Clayton said. “We’re in the studio. We’re trying to get these 12 songs absolutely right and get them finished by the end of November, and then we can kind of enjoy Christmas.”

Clayton, 53, married Mariana De Carvalho last month in a lavish ceremony held south of France, has rarely been able to spend time with his new bride as he continues working on this new U2 album.

U2 were in New York this past June, working with Danger Mouse on the new album at Electric Lady Studios; Coldplay’s Chris Martin was also seen at the studio. U2 had planned originally on releasing the album before the end of the year but with U2 things always change. Let’s hope the delay is worth the wait.
