Mindless speculation on the next album.

What the subject title suggests, really. Anyone mindfully speculating will be reported to the mods.

The "December 2008" option is in case they pull a sudden download release and announce the CD release for next year. I personally can't see that as likely, but 'tis possible.

I think if the release is right after new years we would at least have a confirmation of the first single by now. My guess is march (like POP in 1997).

the joshua tree was also released in march.i think people should just try puttting a pattern to when u2 might release a new album ,oh it has to be released then because they released this album at the same time !!! it will be released when there ready and not before and i don't think they follow a set pattern really .

I agree... They will release it when they are ready..... Now, that does not mean that we cannot play a bit  with our hopes of seeing the album as soon as possible right?.....

BTW this is my first post on the new forum. Very cool... Loved the poll thingy.....

With mixing in progress - confirmed, they must surely be close to the home straight on this project.

I'd go with March, with a single prior to this, probably early Feb - if this pans out, we should be getting radio airplay(pre single release) in January.

I'm hoping for February (would make a nice birthday present.....) but I picked March because I think that might be a little more realistic..... ???

My guess is March with a single in January - 2009 will be their year Bono said so I think they will get in early with tour kicking off April moving to Summer Outdoor shows (probably Europe) and then back to arenas with tour concluding year end.

Well, I thought that was more about actual news, rather than random wondering, but it's probably a fine distinction.

By the way, I'm seeing some vague rationalisations going on here and I don't approve. Mindless speculation, people!*

I voted for Q4 2009.  It's their usual time period these days, and it seems like they are going to keep pushing this thing back farther and farther.

Happy Birthday Adam, it'll be March (I think).  A single-I'd say Happy New Year, Happy New U2 single!!
