Will 2013 be the year U2 release their follow-up to 2009’s “No Line on the Horizon?” Maybe, if you believe longtime U2 manager Paul McGuinness. When asked about the status of a new U2 album during an interview with The Independent, McGuinness stated, “There’s always activity, so certainly expect a new record.” Sounds promising.
In other U2 news, for the fourth consecutive year, U2 frontman Bono and some of his famous friends walked the streets of Dublin, Ireland, on Christmas Eve, singing festive songs while collecting donations for charity.
According to the AtU2.com fan site, Bono -- along with musicians Glen Hansard, Sinead O'Connor and Damien Rice, among others -- sang tunes on Grafton Street on Christmas Eve. Some fans caught video of the group singing “Silent Night,” “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home),” “Silent Night” and U2’s “Desire.” Happy Holidays!
