g friday talks about new u2 album
« on: August 18, 2012, 01:38:05 AM »
just had a listen to gavin friday on the radio in ireland early this morning when asked about u2s new album he did not seem to want to say too much but he did say he thought it would be out in 2013 and he had listened to some of the songs dangermouse was working on and they sounded very different to anything he had heard u2 do before (that concerns me a little) oh and he said the edge was on fire  8) ok that part was not true ;D

Thanks for sharing.  I hope they do put out a new album next year.

I hope Gavin gives Bono a big kick in the ar*e and tells him to get the album out pronto.

Thanks Imedi!  His not wanting to say too much may actually be a good thing. Thanks for the update!

$100 says there will be no U2 album of new material in 2013.

Any takers ?

I don't think U2 can afford NOT to put out something in 2013 (or before).

"afford" monetarily or "afford" artistically.

They haven't given a crap about artistic integrity since Pop.

And how do you know that? Which member of the band are you? How can you say they don't care? It's pretty bold to attack an artist's integrity with such a shallow statement.

I think the albums released since Pop speak to the point made by JTbaby. I wouldn't necessarily say that they don't give a crap about artistic integrity, but it's certainly not foremost in their minds and it shows. Just listen to songs like SUC.

Well obviously they had songs that are just straight crap, but it's not like their whole albums since Pop are void of artistic integrity, that's going too far.

I wouldn't go as far as to say their void of artistic integrity; I'm actually listening to NLOTH as I type this. There are definetly some good tunes since Pop. I just don't think artistic integrity is as paramount as it once was for U2.

I can agree with you on that. But for JTBaby to say they haven't given a crap at all since Pop is not true and unfair to U2.

Exactly. Amazing this stuff needs explaining.
