New album will be out 2021 based on my statistical analysis.

In January 2016, Bono said the new album will sound like the early Police records. You are not allowed to view links.
Unfortunately, Sting is releasing an album next month that will actually sound like The Police. So U2 are back to the drawing board.
I have also predicted that whenever the next album comes out (even if I am proven wrong and it will be before 2021), it will not be called "Songs of Experience". You are not allowed to view links.
I also think U2 were blowing hot air about the next album being released in a new digital format. I think Apple has already swept U2 under the bus and want nothing to do with the band for future promotions.
So back to where we started: It will be 2021. It won't be called Songs of Experience.
