U2 Announce New Studio Album For 2009

Bono finally took some time off from his busy schedule of being the most charitable person alive, and look what happened -- U2 are releasing their first studio album in five years, No Line on the Horizon, in March.

The band announced the release today, and the March 2 release will be the band's 12th studio LP. Sessions for the album began last year in Morocco and continued in the band's home studio back in Dublin before moving to New York and then wrapping up in London.

Production credits on the album include long-time collaborators Brian Eno and Danny Lanois, as well as Steve Lillywhite.

It'll be interesting to see how our new and unimproved economy takes to No Line on the Horizon, since their 2004 release How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb sold 9 million copies in 2004.
