Whether you’ve always loved them or think they’re best days are behind them, U2 continues to shock, even frustrate, music fans worldwide. Last year, they gave away their new album to all iTunes users.
Well, this year, they’re at it again, but this time, they’re not just releasing an album. They’re unleashing a flood.
That’s right! As of this morning, U2 has announced their intentions to cover Sonicflood’s first album and release the results—once again—for free.
“Few bands have been able to shake up and reinvent a genre like Sonicflood did for worship music, and we’d like to honor that while also partaking in a bit of a sonic pilgrimage,” U2 frontman and sunglass aficionado Bono said during this morning’s press conference.
“I can’t really speak to their intentions,” stated Jeff Deyo, former lead vocalist for Sonicflood, “but I’m not opposed to this project.”
Several other former members of Sonicflood were approached for this article, but they declined to comment, except to ask when they could expect to see any royalties.
Not wanting to stilfe the create journey they have embarked on, U2 would not reveal the album’s expected release date, but they did hint that we should be expecting “something special in your stockings.”
Merry Christmas, 90’s praise and worship fans!
