I think an announcement is a fortnight away or so
I just don't know why artist would sit on an album. I quite like what Muse and The Killers did. Release the album in September and tour right away. I can't believe they would wait 5 months to start touring

Well, just because they've finished the album doesn't mean they know how the heck they're going to deal with it in a live setting. Muse and The Killers are a little different because they're not as averse to U2 to bringing other musicians onstage, which makes taking a studio recording to a live setting a little more straightforward. For U2 to play things how they record them is basically impossible, and I think that's probably even more true on this upcoming album...I think Danger Mouse is going to have some heavy production magic worked in...that doesn't mean it'll sound "over-produced" like top 40 radio, but I think it will be intricately woven stuff.

Plus, I don't mind U2 taking more time to release and tour if it means that they're working on developing music video ideas, album artwork, promo materials, and stage/show planning that all fit into a comprehensive, logical theme that goes along with the music. It'd be cool for them to figure out what their story is and stick with it...kind of like the whole concept behind ZooTV. ATYCLB had some really great theming IMO too. With their last season of activity, they seemed kind of crossed up, releasing a strange hybrid album and supporting it with a tour that while impressive, didn't have a real theme until they randomly decided it was sort of "space themed" because the stage looked like a spaceship...

They've worked hard on it, maybe harder than anything else in their career.

We have literally zero way of knowing that. :p

have no fear sir Ken, the next two years will have more U2 than a teddy bear can handle. I have faith... Two albums, lots of discarded b-sides, a new direction for the first time since 2000, And a tour.......it's all ahead
