I can't wait to bump up this thread a couple of years from now and show how some here still don't "get it" with U2 and their declarations.

Cheers,

NLOTH was released in march so that won't happen again. I think May 2013.

If I don't buy a new U2 album in 2013 or before, then I won't be buying a new U2 album ever, ever, ever. I mean never. So it's 2013 for me despite Jick's calculations.

I am the sole "This Month" vote, mainly because that one guy, Exterminator or something, showed up yesterday with all his insider information (which is probably completely true).

I have no idea.  I'm not holding my breath though.  When new material comes, it comes.  That's how I see it.

Remember, there is a general process to releasing an album. A single is usually released to radio about two months before the album is released. Even before that point, there are reports about making videos, demos, increased studio time, as well as record companies HQ's around the globe making small hints hear in there. Producers and other people openly talk about the new tour plans and the building or designing of the new stage that is taking place. This is a well orchestrated process to get the most bang for the buck. So unless you start to see any of these signs, you are definitely not within 3 months of the release of a new album.

              Right now, it seems pretty silent on the U2 front. I suspect you won't start to hear or see any movement on any of the above until August or September of 2013. IF that happens At that time, you will realize that you will have a new U2 album in your hands by Christmas 2013.

The one tidbit of news that made solidified my belief in an actual album release next year is Mercury Records saying 2013.

2013 is off because of the little Spiderman newsflash ?

Doubt it.

Somewhere around November 2013 is my guess.

Summer 2014 at the very latest.
