Will U2 release SOE Before During or After Tour ?
« on: March 03, 2015, 09:33:02 PM »
With Bono currently out of commission it's possible the rest of the band have been working on SOE, with maybe Bono working on lyrics at home.
The Tour is called Innocence and Experience tour, so more than likely a new release is coming but when ?

If there was any hope of the album coming out before or during, it died with Bono's injury. I know they wrote music without Larry, but that was different. They have no reason to rush SoE. If anything, this may change the album. Bono and the guys may come up with new songs about the last year or so.

The difference in this situation is according to the band SOE was near complete before Bono's injury.
It's highly probable and not impossible that the rest of the band have been tucked away
working on arrangements , mixing (etc).
With technology these days a band doesn't have to be in the same studio.
They could easily just email Bono (or better yet a web cam) their ideas so he can work on melodies, lyrics (etc).
If I'm not mistaken The Strokes recorded an entire album using that method.

I'm wondering why Dublin dates are not announced.
Connection?

I agree that we could all be surprised, but the reason for that is we deem it unlikely to happen. I'd be thrilled, but they delayed SoI several times before actually releasing it. I also have a suspicion U2 wants this one to hit bigger than SoI did, so they may get cold feet and pull it to work more.

Of course, none of us know what they hell they're going to do, but that's the fun part. So unpredictable at this point.

True , they might just play a bunch of SOE material live before they record it, as Daniel
Lanois recently suggested.

I know it's not going to happen, but I would absolutely love for U2 to work with Lanois and Eno again. It's always magic.

i voted after the tour is over. they will probably release it before the rumoured 2016 stadium tour.

Will that be a different tour? I figure it will just be the outdoor phase of the same tour like ZooTV.

I hope that if they have got it pretty much finished that they don't tinker with it too much. I think they are often better if they don't have too much time to think about what that are doing.

I think the sooner, the better. It gets them out of the 4/5 year relevance funk they've been in and lets them play around with the songs for the tour.
