Title: Is SOE coming in December?
Post by: monopoly on March 16, 2017, 07:15:49 PM
I find it odd they're doing a photo shoot with snow. Definitely a winter vibe. Perhaps this is for the new album?

A photo shoot? All I saw was one pic posted on Instagram. I hadn't heard of any sort of photo shoot.

In any event, the album will definitely be out by year's end. I think it'll be October or November with a tour to follow in early 2018.

It was in fact a photo shoot. More photos are beginning to surface of them being photographed and posing lol

How about they just use one of The Joshua Tree re-shoots as the cover and duet with Lady Gaga for a few EDM tracks... what the hell do we know at this point?

Could be just a random picture...could be a photo shoot for a magazine maybe ? Certainly interesting that it featured all four members which usually indicates some promo photo work.

These kinds of shoots have happened before and little came of them. I wouldn't get too excited just yet.

Right, that's what I'm saying. I'd like to see an article talking about it, rather than speculation.

Even then, they could very well be using those photos for other purposes. Doesn't necessarily mean they'll use'em for the new album.

Sounds like a whole lot of speculation on their part.

No chance. They'll extend the JT30 tour. I think.

If Bono is already talking about the first single being "The Best Thing",
it means the "Songs of Experience" is imminent. "The Best Thing" is a summer song.

Saw that article today. If they don't release it this year and move into 2018 with still no album it will be beyond a joke. How can you tell the world for sure that you will release an album in 2015, then do the same for 2017 only to say it "maybe" will be out in 2018.

I know there is no official word yet or quotes from that article, but just saying that makes me laugh, and not in a good way! :)

Depends how long they want off after finishing the current tour.

A single & album release this year is possible. Then start a tour around April 2018.

Not sure about Adam's quote from a few months ago, that the delay was due to Trump winning the election.

U2's albums haven't been political since the 80's. SOI is about their childhood.

I hadn't read anything that SOE was going to be a return to flag waving. Just that it was going to be more experimental.

"Next year (2017) is gonna be a big year for the U2 group, we have "Songs of Experience" coming"
There's no "maybe".

They have changed their minds after Trump won the election.

This is Christmas. Trump had already won.

But they may postpone anyway.

Good point.

I wonder why they sent the video saying SOE is coming out in 2017 after Trump had won.

Then said the album is being delayed because errr, Trump won ?

Anyway the Youtube annoncement may still be kept to with a 2017 release. But then again...
