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.

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: http://www.spin.com/articles/u2-new-album-september-drummer-10-reasons-to-exist-bono 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.
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.
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.
