The problem is that the opposite of 'YES' is 'NO' and until they have the go ahead from U2 the answer to all speculation has to be 'NO', even if the album is ready for print next week.

'YES' = all hell breaks loose...

this just means we'll have to work harder to get the album to leak over the net.

Re: the update. Cecilia is only confirming that it's not coming out in March, not that it's going to be next winter... Could be May or June. HIGHLY doubt it's gonna be next winter if they have clearly expressed tour plans for the fall, they ain't gonna tour months before the album comes out.

Could it be that the band are delaying release so that Bono can make that spring trip to Africa that was mentioned in another news story? Either that or the songs were crap. Or both.

In any event, I'm terribly disappointed.

Exclusive: Don't Believe the U2 Album Hype!

Interference.com has just received the following message from Regine Moylett of RMP London, U2's PR agency, in response to the various rumors about the title, tracklisting, release date and so forth of U2's next album:

"Somebody has their wires crossed as we never said we would be making an announcement soon, as we're not. We are not expecting a record until next winter so no announcements for
some time yet."


UPDATE FROM PRINCIPLE MANAGEMENT JAN. 15, 2004


As further confirmation that the album will not released in March, and that a single is not due in the immediate future, we got an email from Principle Management's Cecilia Coffey:






We hope this further satisifies those that wanted to hear confirmation from the 'source'.

Stay tuned to Interference.com for more updates
[/QUOTE





IF WE ALL STOP AND THINK ABOUT IT, THIS REALLY SHOULD BE NO SURPRISE AT ALL AS IT GENERALLY FOLLOWS U2'S 3 1/2-4 YEARS BETWEEN ALBUMS PATTERN OF RELEASES FOR THE PAST 20 YEARS (WITH THE EXCEPTION OF ZOOROPA). NOT TO MENTION, BONO IS DEDICATING TIME WITH ANOTHER TRIP TO AFRICA THIS SPRING, WHICH SLOWS THE MUSIC SIDE OF THINGS DOWN EVEN MORE....

THE UNFORGETTABLE FIRE-1984; JOSHUA TREE-1987; ACHTUNG BABY-1991; (ZOOROPA-1993) POP-1997 ATYCLB-2000

BESIDES, A GOOD PR MACHINE SUCH AS U2 NEVER LETS THE PUBLIC SEE IT COMING UNTIL THE VERY LAST MINUTE. I'M SURE WE'LL HAVE SOMETHING IN 2004....

That's not always true.... often leaks, intentional or not, build a lot of hype and buzz... creating even more anticipation for a release.
