No Line On The Horizon, the platinum album from U2 was released on March 3, 2009 (on Interscope Records) and features the new single “I'll Go Crazy If I Don't Go Crazy Tonight.” It is the band’s 12th studio album and their first release since the nine-million selling album How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb, which was released in late 2004.
Produced by Brian Eno, Daniel Lanois and Steve Lillywhite, sessions for No Line On The Horizon began in Fez, Morocco, and continued at the band’s Dublin studio, New York’s Platinum Sound Recording Studios, and Olympic Studios in London.
The cover artwork for the album is an image of the sea meeting the sky by acclaimed Japanese artist and photographer Hiroshi Sugimoto.
The album was released in a standard format with a 24- page booklet and in digipak format. The digipak includes an extended booklet and the album’s companion film “Linear” by Anton Corbijn. A limited edition package with album, cd and 64-page magazine is also available, featuring the band in conversation with artist Catherine Owens, and new Anton Corbijn photographs. No Line On The Horizon was also released on 180-gram vinyl.
The band's U.S. summer stadium tour begins on September 12th.
