Expecting a NLOTH type record... one full of good ideas, but conflicting views and a shiny overpolish that combine to become a confused album.

I was really hoping for a summer single. Now it's October.

Christmas single
even modern day u2 aren't that desperate...

I don't know... didn't they do that Father Christmas song in this century?  I'm sorry, I can't and don't want to pin down its time as I'm showing my age when I think of 2005 as just a few years ago.  I hated that song anyway; I much preferred the Christmas Baby (Please Come Home) they did way back in the 80's.

No idea...Does not register with me at all.

I am sure the poster didn't mean a Christmas single as in a 'Christmas' one though!

Right... but I thought you were suggesting one ;) 

And of course they did do a New Year's single once... I recall it was quite a good song.

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. Register or Login

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. Register or Login

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.

Cheers,

J

jick, you take so much flak for saying it, but you're right.  U2 are so formulaic and predictable nowadays... the cycle repeats.

I don't wanna wait until 2021 for the album... but I also want jick's equation to be right.

This fear of failure is killing them.
And what does working until Christmas mean? Travelling the globe without the other band members and meeting up at a studio every now and again? Working on it separately, or is there another way it can be done? And with that will they get a better result compared to putting some time pressure on themselves to risk over-polishing down to a nub?

Always pushing the album back. I hope this will be worth the wait and us patient supporters are rewarded with some killer tunes

The problem with spending all this time polishing up commercial hits for radio is that they still don't get much radio play anyway. Have a look at the singles from the last two albums.

To my mind Adams recent comments on RTE and in Cleveland make it pretty clear. They are in deep musical problems. They would have liked to put out the record earlier but they weren't able to. They are scared of failure. There must have been arguments in the band.

In my opinion the tour will not start before summer.

what is two years since the last album?

if they deliver another in the next 12 months it will be the quickest follow up in over 20 years won't it?...

Why the impatience?...
