'Songwriters aren’t touring people,' says Bono. 'Cole Porter wouldn’t have sold T-shirts. Cole Porter wasn’t coming to a stadium near you.'

The band are on the cover of the international edition of Time Magazine and telling Catherine Mayer 'about another new album in the works—and its secret Apple project that might just save the music industry.'

Preview here.

Time have also posted a video of the band discussing news stories that shaped them when they were young - from Neil Armstrong landing on the moon to the death of Elvis. Watch the clip.

i love these guys so much !!!!
A great article to read & video snippets, I was with Larry, the death of Elvis because this had a huge impact on me too, I was around 8 years old when Elvis died, my mam was a fan and always had his music on & used to listen with her & became an instant fan & I still am at 45, he was the king of rock n roll & he always will be. I still cannot watch footage of his funeral without crying !!!!!

still rock n rolls hottest ticket
U2 twice on the cover dont forget Bonos Time cover appearance too with the Superbowl stars n stripes leather jacket. Songs of Innocence is so great, but I reckon Songs of Experience will be the main event
