I really don't care. They should do whatever they feel like doing. The main thing I would like them to do is to put a time limit on it so it doesn't become over processed. That is what seemingly happened with Pop as they had to get the album out. Worked pretty well then. Moment of Surrender was also done in a day.

That approach would also get us a new album quicker, but alas given a tour ahead and then presumably a decent break before they even think about another album, whatever is next is probably 5 years away at least.

We probably have a Joshua Tree tour DVD to look forward to for Xmas 2018, a SOE tour DVD for Xmas 2019, then a greatest hits 2000 to 2020 for Xmas 2020. 2021 might be quiet, then a new album in 2022!

2022 for the next album is a definite possibility as the tour next year will likely go into 2019 and then they will really need to take a break from touring. Hitting North America in 2015, 2017, 2018, and likely 2019 is really over saturating the market for them live given their usual schedule in the past. Its possible they could release an album in late 2020 and then tour in 2021 although that might be to quick of a return to the road. The 20s are coming. What might the 20s bring in terms of music?

Their next album should be their last one, release it in 2020 that way they get another #1 in the USA and be the only band with #1 albums in 5 decades as it seems those are their goals now.

Why should their next album be their last?

U2 should do whatever they want for their next album.

A quick dump...

No need to wait another 4 or 5 years in this environment.

They will have to wait close to that amount of time to allow the market to recover for the tour. They have hit some of the same cities in North America on tours in 2015, 2017, and now 2018 and potentially 2019. They have not toured that often since the early 80s in North America. They will need a good break after the next tour to allow the market to recover so they can play to full houses again.

Crumbs From Your Table type rock n roll. All 4 of them in the room together type record.

Similar to how Noel Gallagher puts it

i don't think they're thinking about a next album right now.  They just completed their five year plan, or will with the upcoming tour.  There is no Songs of Ascent out there.  It became the two albums they've just released.
