November 15, 2013 · Print This Article

While the band has talked about their upcoming album at various lengths over the past year or so, the boys in U2 have been unwilling to make any official statement about a release date. In an interview with The Sun back in January of this year, Bono went so far to say that it might take ten years for the next U2 album to be available, so long as it was done right.

Until now, that is.

Recording-U2The project is finally nearing its completion. U2 have been working with Danger Mouse at Electric Lady Land Studios on their most recent venture. Reports say that the band hopes to announce their newest addition to their discography during the Super Bowl, via commercial. Rumored names for the album include 10 Reasons To Exist and Songs Of The Ascent.

Producer Daniel Lenois commented on sound of the yet unreleased album. “it sounded amazing, very, very big and powerful-sounding. Some of it was adventurous. There were shades of ‘Achtung Baby.”

This is so far the best news that fans of U2 can hope for, considering that the band’s original public hope was for the album to be ready by the end of 2013. It’s not an official release statement, but fans at least can now look forward to knowing exactly what to expect and when to expect it.

It’s good news for everyone, and fans everywhere can now release a well-deserved sigh of relief.
