LP13 - Still Waiting - 1980 days since Bono announced Songs of Ascent

Still waiting.

Rumours include:

- Album called 'Sirens'
- Songs include 'Song for Someone', 'The Troubles', 'The Light', 'Siren'
- Announcement apparently imminent
- Release date proposed any time between early October and late November.
- Tour to kick off in Vancouver in late May 2015 (this could be the NA leg of the tour) in arenas
- While some quotes from band members and others in the inner circle have alluded to two albums / a double album, this hasn't been confirmed, and as always with U2, is subject to change. It is safe to say that they had an idea to finish two albums off in these sessions and release mid tour, but chances are still probably pretty slim that this will ever happen.

And in case you are wondering - it is approx 1980 days since the interview where Bono claimed that 2009 would be U2's year, and that Songs of Ascent would come out later in the year....

....There was too much French horn in SOA so they had to scrap the idea.

Well, I'm heading out tomorrow morning for vacation, so I'll next be checking Interference on August 12th or so. Hopefully there's some halfway-exciting news to come home to!

I'm imagining Dan has a wall in his house covered in little tally marks, now.

Well, he was half right. 2009 was U2's year, but SOA was never released.

That thread is depressing.

However, the following quote from DaveC was quite realistic:

Quote:
Not a fucking chance is there going to be another album this year, or next year, or the year after that. Or the year after that. The earliest we will get more new U2 (aside from B-sides, obviously) will be 2013, if that.



You are more than welcome to quote me on this.
