U2's Next Album?/Songs of Ascent?

Hi guys sorry for asking a dumb question, but what do you guys think will be the next album? I remember when SOI was released they mentioned SOE and I'm not sure what will be the next album

Another album is probably like 4 to 5 years away - if indeed another one is coming. I really hope so. I love both SOI and SOE and SOA to cap a trilogy would be a dream.

We’ve been hearing about SOA since 2014 so who knows if some songs from SOE were intended for SOA or whether SOA is even a thing right now.

Great title though - SOI is the birth, SOE is the life, and SOA is the farewell.

I really like that tune from the early 2016 Fender The Edge video. I wonder if those songs are for SOA.

I don't think anyone has a clue. I haven't seen every interview or article, but the past few album releases Bono has talked about the next one right away.

Nothing has been mentioned by the band. I think we all assume SOA would be the next album, but wouldn't really count on it.

I would love U2 to focus on releasing more music versus the super tours going forward.

I don't think there will be an actual Songs of Ascent.

I think we will see a much more subdued album in terms of U2 realizing they're not going to have another hit again.

I think it would be best if we just remove Songs of Ascent from our minds. It hasn't been mentioned since NLOTH days.

And as far as that guitar part goes, I have to imagine U2 has hundreds of songs just sitting in a vault, and probably thousands of guitar parts that Edge has come up with.

I would be surprised if we ever hear that riff in a song.

Getting to number one equates to a hit album, they have a good chance of doing that both in the uk and us,

Putting that riff in the vault but hearing Volcano packaged four different ways, smh

I don't know, there's a hearty drop off from the debut. Already 42 on iTunes.

We have actually had more tours than we had of U2 studio albums.

I’d bet on it yes. Guessing it will be a bit more joyful. And it would be their last album.

What is 42 on iTunes? It's currently at number 2 in the Us and 8 in the UK with mainly compilations above it?

I think U2 is hanging it up. And I'm perfectly fine with it. Songs of Experience is a great album to close their career.

Pat on the back for the boys.

Well, I'm not sure if it's their last, but who knows?

Interesting. My iTunes is showing it as 42 on the top albums list.

Weird, number 2 on my iPhone's iTunes.
