Irish rock icons U2 are returning to Island Records, the company that discovered them over 30 years ago.
U2 has long considered Island Records home, but when their friend and label big boss Jason Iley was moved to sister company Mercury Records, the band followed him there.
In 2013, parent company Universal shut down Mercury Records, leaving the band with no label. Now, a source confirms to The Guardian newspaper that U2 is going back to “their spiritual home” with Island Records.
The last album U2 released was “No Line on the Horizon” in 2009. Their new record, the band’s 13th studio album, is set to hit the shelves in March 2014.
