Do not hold your breath waiting for the next U2 album. God is the band's A&R manager Bono tells David Letterman.
Bono was a guest of the Late Show With David Letterman this week and explained why there has not been a new U2 record since 'No Line On The Horizon' in 2009.
'You know Quincy Jones said to me 'Bono, you've got to wait for God to walk through the room' and I said 'Q, why is God so unreliable in the music department'. And he said 'Just to teach you to wait', so we are waiting,' Bono said.
Bono explained that there was no rush for the next album. 'We have a deal with our audience, they give us a great life and they expect us to be great and that's tricky,' Bono said. 'As you get better you get very good and very good is kind of the enemy of great. You can mistake it for great. People don't get excited about us being very good. Who needs a new U2 album? There are loads of them out there. We have to make a great U2 album and they don't care waiting as long as it's great'.
