Will U2's Next Album Have.....
« on: October 23, 2013, 01:43:00 PM »
With all of this new album talk spreading across the Forum, I thought I'd put a question to all of you U2 fans out there.

Will U2's next album have songs that we are already aware of on it? (I'm talking about songs like Mercy and Every Breaking Wave here).

Also, do we think that this is a possibility for why they are taking their time with releasing this new album?

Is it because they've got, maybe 15, unreleased songs and they don't know which ones to leave off the album?

What do you guys think?

I think Every Breaking Wave will make it.  Everything else will be new. IMO

Probably be a few cut and paste jobs of parts and songs that were called one thing reworked into something else - that seems to be the norm.

I for one would be disappointed if we ended up with songs like ebw, in pretty straight up guises to how they are known.

Lanois said they've been reworked so we'll get something old for sure

Which song or songs do you think will make the cut then?

^ I was thinking that Soon might be on the album too, but I think that would be the only "old" song on the album.

It would be interesting to see what U2 have done with EBW though. It has a nice melody and even nicer lyrics. I'd love to hear it as a full band version on the new album.

If I were a betting man, I'd say Every Breaking Wave will be on the new album. I'm fairly certain of that.

And I think there's a shot that Mercy with reworked lyrics would be on it, but I think that's highly unlikely.

Aside from that, all new stuff.

I really wanted North Star, But it probably wont be on it because they wasted it on Transformers 3
