Normally I would say no, but to leak this kind of thing so close to the release? I think there's something to this.

The pertinent question is...who have you trusted to think it is close to the release?

Though I am wishfully-thinking along the same lines.

I think all the members of the band have directly indicated that the album's release is immanent. So to my mind, Bono's claim here is completely different from his claim in 3/09 that SOA would be out before the year's end. That was a promise months away from possible fulfillment, whereas this one's more easily falsifiable.

But then, it's Bono, so who knows? That kid spends half his time talking about of his @$$.

Three thoughts:
1) Bono should drink during all interviews, he's more entertaining.
2) "There's two of them now" means albums or songs?
3) I want to hear the acoustic polka and harmonica album.

There ARE two albums, there have been two albums the entire time. Yes, the first album was delayed a few times but they have been saying there are two albums for the last two and a half years.....

They are working on an acoustic harmonica driven polka album with Coldplay if this is to be believed...

It's going to be hilarious when they decide against releasing one of them and go back on their years of hints, innuendos and confirmations.

Last year, Larry and Adam both said they were aiming for September, then the end of 2013.

If they were in the media as often as Bono, you wouldn't trust them either.

Bono would release the album/s sooner rather than later. There are other band members, particularly one I'm close to, who are responsible for how long it's taking. ;)

Amanda seems to be a decent girl and all but she missed her big scoop when she virtually let the 2 album quote go unchallenged. Very amateurish. She could've pressed Bono on it but it seemed to go in one ear and out the other.

It looks like a quick one-two punch rather than a double album then.

The Chris Martin influence is sure to annoy some here. I'll reserve my judgement. Coldplay have some great tunes and some not so great. Looks like no earlier than July if there are two albums.

Bono's statements about u2's plans in interviews are things I have learnt to not treat seriously...

It may seem that way but Bono and Amanda have known each other since they were kids or at least since Bono was a teenager and she was a small child. They both grew up on Cedarwood Road. I think any interview they have is naturally going to be laid back and informal so I would think she wouldn't press him like she would other people. You just wouldn't do that to a personal friend of yours.
