working title of new album: "Ten Reasons to Exist"

Well, the title will not likely survive, but other than "Songs of Ascent,"  (long dead) it's the only one we've got:


New album named 10 Reasons To Exist
By GORDON SMART, Showbiz Editor


FOR anyone wondering if BONO still hadn’t found what he was looking for – I think he has.

Well, at the very least a new working title for the 13th U2 album: 10 Reasons To Exist.

The band have been in the studio for months and the new name seems to be inspired by the graft they have put into staying together for 36 years.

Frontman Bono – who halted work in December because he was suffering from flu – said: “U2 have been back and they’re really in fine fettle.

“They’re mad for it at the moment and they really want to make a new record. And they don’t care if it takes ten years – they don’t care if it never happens again, they just want to get it right.

“Within the band we’ve been calling it 10 Reasons To Exist – but I will tell you we might have at least six of them.”

Bono spent a large part of last year doing posh backpacking holidays around the world with his family.

Perhaps that was one of the ten reasons? That and Guinness.

Oh my! Seems to be going around in the "press" - You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login Check out the link above to our forum thread on this.

Bono says that WITHIN THE BAND we are calling it this.

Here's what Bono said in his radio interview w/ Guggi between  Christmas and New Year's. You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login 

If these "reports" are true, maybe Bono is trying to lessen the heat Larry may have turned up w/ his recent comments. Go, Larry!

How anyone can interpret that phrase Bono threw out in that Amanda Brunker interview as an album title is beyond me. It was pretty clear to me he was just saying, within the band we're operating under the mentality that the 10 songs we come up with for a new album need to be good enough for us to justify releasing them.

OMG, I just heard the new album's title is "The 10 songs we come up with for a new album need to be good enough for us to justify releasing them."

Guess that's a bit like me, every day I come back to check for some credible news of a new album. When will I learn?

"10 reasons to exist" sounds way much better than "Project 01", their previous working title for this.

Why does it matter what any of these working titles are ? There is ZERO chance that any of these will be the title of the next album.

i actually thought about this a bit last night...
what if...

they really called it that and released one song/reason each month starting in September with the summer tour starting on the 10th song/reason in June of 2014?

perhaps that is why they are taking so long as they want 10 singles!

or perhaps it was just a strange dream...

Hm...not that I'm anywhere near an expert on how radio works, but I don't think that's gonna get them on the radio any more than GOYB did.

Cool idea though. I would love for it to happen and absolutely rock.

yeah, i was a broadcaster in the late 80's and 90's and terrestrial radio/chart ranking has gotten very confusing and for the most part very 'inaccurate'. the 'web release' compared to the 'radio release' is a weird dynamic.
