U2 find they can leave Island behind

There's gossipy rumours that U2's shift within Universal Music Group from Island to Universal proper has been driven by conflicts between band and executives (or, rather, executives and executives), but Universal rushed to deny this:

A spokesman for Universal has rubbished the rumours though, commenting: "We foster strong relationships at Universal Music. We have the best artists and the best executives and we're proud of how closely they work together."

Which does, then, raise the question of why U2 believe they'd be better off under the Universal banner instead of the Island marque which has served them pretty well for twenty-six years.
