An advisable, perhaps, update to the most recent post on the main @atu2 site:

In an exclusive interview with Kevin & Bean on KROQ FM this morning, Bono himself confirmed the December 1st release date of SONGS OF EXPERIENCE during a brief chat about the new single "You're The Best Thing About Me."

B-man responded to a direct question asked by one of the DJs about that specific date (not sure if it was Kevin or Bean). But it was indeed an affirmative and - as it comes from an actual band member - I'd say fairly definitive response.

You can listen here to the full interview (Bono's response to the question comes at the 1:38 mark), which is fairly amusing, as Bono chats often are.

I guess if they were planning to do so much radio then it makes sense to save something newsworthy and not just post everything online.

This. I won't believe it until there is an official announcement. I don't think he has ever agreed on a specific date like he does here before though has he?

I thought for sure it would have been mentioned on Jimmy Fallon last night.  Bono didn't want to comment, and Edge said the album is finished.  That's it.

I'm starting to think they are going to drop the album as a digital download/stream very soon, but the physical release will be  Dec 1. Doing all this promo for a single, but an album that won't be available for 3 months seems strange. Unless they really are waiting to see the reaction to the single before deciding an actual tracklisting or whether more work is needed.

Tune in tomorrow evening to see the band perform the song live for the first time on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon, and if you’re a U2.com subscriber, keep an eye out for a special visual art piece coming your way.

Yeah I think rather than it being delayed past Dec 1st, they'll just release it sooner. The JT tour ends Oct 25th right? Kind of pointless to take all of November off. Not like the SoE tour is going to start up right after. They can release the album and then announce the tour later on. Wishful thinking perhaps but it sounds logical.

December 1st seems far off if they've already released the first single.  I predict October 1st.
