Caught the re-post of the audio on the website.

That was kind of a bummer. Not much info about new music at all, Bono's still referring to the band as "them" (WTF?), no album title hints...

As usual with the U2 hype machine, it's more much ado about nothing.

Bono sounds like he's in no hurry, memorable quotes are:

'They don't care if it takes 10 years'

'The band are calling it ten reasons to exist and I can tell you at the moment we have six of them'

'We have some tunes you can hear through very thick walls'

She didn't do too much fishing, I was expecting a little more.

What does that even mean, "we have some music you can hear through very thick walls"? You can hear anything through thick walls if you crank up the volume.

So that implies six songs done, I guess.

Well, whoever was hoping for a double album will surely be disappointed!

Not even 11!  Bono said 10 I think...
They better be 10 damn good songs.
But seriously how long does it take to record another 4 or 5 songs from this point?  Should not be more than 2 months max.

Who here is still holding on to hope for a 2013 release after all this new barrage of hyperbolic deceptive meaningless declarations from Bono?

Cheers,

Well, I still am. In what way was it hyperbolic and deceptive? Only indication he made was there are 6 songs done for the album. The only hyperbolic statements I've heard recently are from you. Relax and wait for the album.
