"I assume there値l be another album" Larry Mullen says
« on: September 30, 2018, 03:20:31 AM »
Hello everybody,

in the sunday times interview, Larry Mullen "assume there値l be another album".
When ask if he'll resume acting, the U2 drummer answered: "I壇 like to, but I had to put all that stuff on hold. The problem is if the tour gets changed, the album gets released at a different time and all bets are off".

Does he mean there's a U2 album on the go anytime soon?

I hope so.
But maybe wishful thinking ...

Not the way I read it. Sounded more him explaining why he didn稚 pursue the acting career. I think reading the article it痴 suggesting there is a big question mark over the whole thing.

Everyone痴 being over dramatic and thinking there is an Achtung/Zoo tour 2 is absurd. There will be another album and another tour. But it痴 going to be 4/5 years just as 360-IE was.

No chance, the world and U2 need a break from one another.
The band need a break themselves, they aren't 25 anymore and this article is telling in that regard.

The article left me feeling very sad that they may well call it a day soon. We should definitely make the most of this tour. And I知 even more worried about Bono痴 health now.

That is the GREATEST U2 interview I have ever read.

Typos and missing quote marks aside.

I enjoyed that article, but the author was clearly spinning the story to fit the narrative of 填2 are old and need physical therapy to perform, the end is near!

I mean, the end MIGHT be near.  They may take some time off and realize that they don稚 have anything left to say, no passion for it anymore.  More likely, though, is that they値l take a well deserved break in 2019.  Then they値l begin work in the next album, which will take a couple years.  I wouldn稚 expect an album anytime before late 2021, which would be 4 years since SOE.  All signs point to a band who just needs a break for awhile.

Thanks for posting this! It appears to be an earlier draft of the article that appeared in The Times. So, a little messier but more stuff! Great article.

The world has changed and they need to take stock....they'll be back.  Spend some time mentoring the Music Generation in Ireland and that might help bring back some hope.  The younger generations are said to be some of the most optimistic?

It certainly sounds like they need a break, but they are artists. Bono will need to write, Edge will need to create. The one that worries me is Larry. I never thought about how banging sticks year after year has taken it痴 toll on his body. I hope a good rest will do them all a world of good.

At the end of this rolling stone article, it is mentionned that Experience Tour maybe extended in 2019

One thing for sure, if Experience Tour is about going home, and the final date is november 13th,
then, let's say Berlin is U2's home... Another Achtung Baby on the way?
