Just came across this article based on an interview yesterday with Bono in Nice:

For those who don't know Spanish, Bono says that they look forward to playing in the city's new stadium next year, and that the new album is very close to being complete.

But at least it is news in that it is a quote from a member of the band from yesterday, right?

Oh absolutely; and thanks for posting it! :)  Just meant that it's another piece of evidence to reinforce the general frame we have.

Yeah. At this stage in my fandom, hoping for what we already know to be reinforced is as good as it gets (and better than having our timeframe altered by some new delay).

Well, Pop is also "nearly complete" according to Bono, and it came out 16 years ago and is one of U2's best albums....

Seems to reinforce the belief that the album will come out this year if they want to tour in 2014. Things seem to be on track.

"Nearly complete."

Gah. Their responses to news about the upcoming album seem so calculatedly ambiguous. I know I posted yesterday that I love that, but it also leaves me wanting to beg.

"Nearly complete" = "Time to second-guess ourselves and Sillywhitewash."

Nah, I heard they're bringing in Justin Bieber's little sister to put the finishing touches on it.

I recall Edge saying several times that he never considers U2's albums to be complete but abandoned because they could work on it forever.
They have been known to be working until the very last day they possibly can until they have to give it into the record company so I would say that since the reception of this album will mean a great deal to them that will also be the case this time around and I can see them getting a tap on the shoulder when it needs to be in, nothing new for them.

Stadiums in Europe again if this is true!

It also depends on whether estadio means the same exact thing in Spanish that its English equivalent means to us. It's possible that it just means "venue" or something, I'm not sure. My Spanish is decent, but not fluent.

It could be just the artwork that still needs to be printed.

I think the production of the songs is done.
