Well, it's just a rumor. Anyway, one of the RedOne songs was already in a movie, wasn't it? And it did not sound too shabby.
But why do the publicity people of U2 believe working with "Lady Gaga's producer" were good for how the band is perceived in public? I mean it's not like those little monsters read album credits and get interested in U2 this way. I mean there are no credits with a download.
But us U2 fans read credits. I got into Daniel Lanois and Howie B this way. Thanks U2.
However, the band has always been in good hands with Larry for keeping it real.
