Last week the guys at @CascadeGuitars posted a great photo of U2‘s recording studio. It’s a second-floor view and shows how Bono, The Edge, Larry Mullen and Adam Clayton situate each other and their gear during the recording process.

Starting from the drums and going clockwise: drums, piano, bass, vocals, synth, keyboards, and guitar. Did we miss anything?

U2’s New Album

U2 is currently working on their 13th studio album tentatively titled 10 Reasons to Exist. (Editor Update: The final title for U2’s 13th studio album was “Songs of Innocence”). The long overdue album was originally intended to be a “companion” piece to their last studio album, No Line On the Horizon, which was released in 2009. At the time, Bono predicted that the “companion” record would be out by 2010. Hopefully, 2013 is a lucky year for U2’s 13th album.
