I just had a troubling thought - Adam's interview was about the stage set-up, rather than the songs, about how they would make up for not having the claw. He explicitly mentions the tours of zoo tv and popmart, rather than the albums or songs. Is it possible he was just saying that, because they don't have the 360 stage, they're going to compensate with a more pop-tv style thing, and wasn't actually referring to the songs at all?  :-[

If U2 has taught me anything, it's to be cynical. And if being cynical has taught me anything, it is to try to think of the most disappointing scenario possible and expect that from U2!

Aw, gee, I knew that wasnt going to happen. I've read U2 by U2. I knew they werent going to release another album while still on tour.... So I wasnt let down....

They still do amazing shows!! I'm going to 5 this summer. So excited!!! I dont care about a new album. Maybe they will do one in a few years. I dont think they are done yet.

For me this is the first time that I have been kind of "meh" about the tour and more interested in the album. I think it has to do with the amount of hits they're playing--I just can't listen to another rendition of ISHF or WOWY. I love my NLOTH playlist, but I am jonesing for a new album. Even if something comes out in the fall I will be thrilled, but I know it won't.

U2 takes awhile between albums.... :/ We must expect that.

Indeed, but never before have they been so direct and detailed in their promises to release a new one. We had a title, a lead single, the producer(s), and the target release date. That is not precedented at all.

Seriously? I think Spidey got in the way.

Have a little faith. I think they ARE working on a new album....

No doubt. About Spidey, I mean. But doubt about everything else.

It's odd, willie's recent quote suggests u2 are still working on new material, but i could never see them releasing something immediately after a tour... which is what persevering with a new album at the moment would suggest.
Perhaps they finally want to shake things up a bit. Perhaps they want to break free of the formula, and have some fun as a band. Perhaps they want to release music simply because they have great songs and want their fans to hear them - instead of only doing something if it is 'tactical' - and will straight-up release an album when they damn well feel like it, or sneakily release an EP.
... then again, perhaps not.
