Ryan Tedder Has Never Seen U2 This Focused


(Radio.com) U2 is currently working on the follow-up to their Songs of Innocence album, to be titled Songs of Experience. And one of the band's co-producers, Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic, says that it's sounding like a great addition to U2's already classic catalog.

Tedder and OneRepublic were at Radio.com to discuss their own new single, "Wherever I Go," (watch the video here, and look for our full interview with OneRepublic next week) and Tedder offered his opinion on the new U2 project: "I've never seen them this focused."

He noted that the Songs of Experience will consist mostly of newly-written songs, with just a few songs that didn't make it to Songs of Innocence. "It's a new record. There might be one or two songs from Songs of Innocence [included]."

He said that U2's classic 2000 album provided a benchmark of sorts. "It's the most exciting stuff I've heard since All That You Can't Leave Behind. And that album cover was on the wall; [it was] saying 'Match or beat this record.'" Read more here.
