Should Bono be trusted with numbers? I mean, there's the "uno, dos, tres, catorce" and "count on two fingers" stuff... 10 might be pushing it.

Lol! Count on two fingers! Another Bono lyrical gaffe (after atm machine)

Bono added "All you count on two fingers" to Walk On way back when they performed it at the Grammys. At least that's the earliest I remember him adding it.

Some of the forum cynics thought it's a reference to how many more albums U2 would record before they became irrelevant and lost their mojo.  ::)

After listening to the Larry Mullen interview and reading this article in Spin,
I really do believe we will get a new album before Christmas this year:

It sounds like they are planning on releasing the Danger Mouse album first, since that has
the best chance of being a commercial success, and then release a more experimental album in 2014...
Which may be the club-sounding album they've discussed... and put fear in the hearts of some U2 fans.
So, there seems to be at least some discussion within the band to follow the Achtung Baby-Zooropa model. 

I know some here are very skeptical we will see an album this year, but hearing Larry confirm the late-2013
release plan makes me feel pretty good about it.

They're working with the writer for one direction? No no no no no no no.

What's more, the Guardian has picked up a report in the usually dodgy Sun in which Bono reportedly says the new album is tentatively titled 10 Reasons to Exist. The band is "in fine fettle" and "really want to make a new record," he's quoted as saying. The Sun has been accused of fabrication by just about everyone, but when the Guardian picked up its report that Paul McCartney would be fronting a reunion of the surviving Nirvana members, that's what actually happened.

Jaesus, what's wrong with these people!?! They're already sourcing @U2 in the article, just look further into the front page or pop onto the forums for two seconds and you'd find out where the TR(i)TE quote came from, listen to the audio and work out that Bono wasn't being serious FFS!   ::)

Well, with the announcement of a Vampire Weekend album, I have plenty to look forward to in 2013 non-U2 (Daft Punk, Phoenix, Arcade Fire, etc), so I'll be patient with them.

A VW announcement? My day just got even better!

Yes, look in the General Music Thread!  :)

I think beginning of May, though the date escapes me.

I hope this is true, I don't want to go another full year with nothing! NLOTH has been played to death on my ipod - thankfully I still love it.

Remember reading something about utilizing an App. Might it be something similar to this?:

Central to the album campaign will be a new Bon Jovi app, which uses augmented reality to bring alive the album artwork and reveal hidden content. Despite some baffling talk of "zSpace" and "2.5D" at the press conference, Bon Jovi said the band was fully involved in its development, describing the technology as a way "to stay relevant, because it's harder and harder to sell records."

But he also said he hoped fans would still buy the physical CD of the album.

"If anything, to me, this would help you want to have the package," he said. "Because when you take the CD package home from a retail outlet and put it up on your wall, not only will the app work, but we'll update that living, breathing piece of paper every night during the course of the tour. It makes it that much more engaging for the younger fan who isn't as old as I am!"
