The 22-time Grammy-winning rock band U2, formed in Dublin and fronted by Bono, needs a safe space.
U2 says it needs to rethink its new album and a future in which Donald Trump is president of the United States. So it’s delaying the release of its new album because of the election results.
David Evans, the U2 guitarist known as “The Edge,” said in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine that the band had planned on completing and releasing its latest work, “Songs of Experience” — until “the world changed” when Trump won the presidency on Nov. 8. So the band is going to “regroup.”
