New material by end of the year?
« on: June 16, 2016, 08:16:13 PM »
I was just listening tonight to SiriusXM radio on channel 28, the Spectrum. After playing a U2 song, the DJ stated she can't confirm this,but expects to hear new U2 material by the end of the year. Now I've been mislead by on-air DJ's before, but I hope she knows something we don't. Adam just posted a picture in Malibu so maybe they're finishing things up for the new album?
I'll have to look up the DJ's name and post it later.

Yep, and he's the only guy working on it.

It's all based on assumptions

"They still need another 15-20 producers to nail it down."

Sorry -- I was just laughing at all the comments and had to chime in -- they're awesome.  It's only because we love 'em and want to hear new music.  This should turn into a thread where everyone gives a classic U2 one-liner, or a possibly hypothetical U2 one-liner excuse for an album delay.    I'll start:

"EDGE:  We're still a bit digging in the earth, so to speak.  We currently have approximately 450 songs, enough for 40 albums.  But we're not quite sure in which families the children belong, you know?  You need to find the best families for the children to have the air and the room to grow.  Especially if you're going to lug the children along with you on stage in front of 40,000 people..."

We had 3 records ready to release, but we have to dream it all up again.

I have a feeling the band will release the album on the 26th September 2016, 40 years and 1 day since they were formed.

I was surprised that Adam wrote 'God bless', I'd always thought he, although spiritual, was the aetheist in the group.

I don't know for sure (obviously) but I read somewhere that when he went through rehab for his alcohol abuse, he became a person of faith. Who knows? I hope so!
