Will we see "Songs of Experience" before the next tour?

I assume everyone has read the "Remember Us" letter on U2's website, and knows to expect a sister album to SOI very soon. But how soon do you think it will arrive? I'd imagine SOE coming out late 2014 to early 2015, and having a tour in the summer. Thoughts?

If they start a tour in the summer, I would think they'd like to release this next album prior to December. By then they'll have a good batch of 6-10 new songs to tour live.

They easily will have enough tracks for a rarities album by next year.

Ordinary Love (Paul Epworth Remix)
Lucifer's Hands      
The Crystal Ballroom

Possibly - I guess it will be determined by how well Innocence is received (and maybe how many buy the special edition version when it goes on sale next month).

If it doesn't go as well as they had hoped, I reckon U2 will release Experience in March or April next year before the tour starts (and maybe also at the same time announce they will be retiring at the end of the tour).

If Innocence does better than expected, they may pull a "Zooropa" and release Experience mid-tour and change the setlist around a bit.  Either way, I have a feeling these may be the last two albums that U2 record (as U2 anyway).
