Songs of Experience XI

latest news:

- Rolling Stone says no album this year per an anonymous spokeswoman
- U2 have the iHeartRadio festival coming up (9/23) and DreamForce (October)
- Steve Lillywhite apparently has a mix of the single on his phone and was brought in to help with mixing
- Multiple sources from posters here have been indicating that the band have cold feet about releasing an album this year
- People are obsessing over an instagram of a cat from The Edge's wife's twitter, thinking it's an intentional marketing effort (come on).

Ok, i'll say it this time:

Is THIS the thread where we hear some new music?

Or at the very least perhaps concrete news on anything (single, album, tour?)

New music does not include Morleigh's cat !!

less than that. if there is a new song coming out, it would be again so stupid for them to debut it at a festival that isn't even 1/2 U2 fans. they need to have a new song out early next week imo.

Okay, since this is a new thread, can we get a list or at least said posters restating the cold feet part?

Also, what is the most recent thing the band have said about the album? The band does not include an unnamed spokeswoman. Basically one of the four members or their manager.

I somehow remember someone saying early this year that it would be out by end of 2016, with tour to follow. So like I have said, would be quite gutted if they don't get the album out this year, which would raise the possibility of them starting the tour without a new album. Which would be grim.

I still feel (vibes and all that crap) that we are gonna have a new song this month and album this year. Just want to know how stupidly optimistic I am being.

Both Sharebear and Registered Dude (correct me if I'm wrong) have said cold feet.

Last statement by the band was (I believe) Bono in Valencia saying album's not finished. Please correct me if I'm wrong. May I add: I don't believe a word of what the band says with regards to new music.

I've not yet heard cold feet at all, which may or not mean a whole hell of a lot.

Fwiw, also, the Sacramento angle has pretty much turned out to be a pile of malarkey.

And the stars seem to be aligning.

I don't buy the spokeswoman angle in the least bit. BTDT, type thing.

But that's just me.

I don't believe they would just play a new single on the iHeart gig without a build up some days before. I think this Friday is the deadline for us. We could expect at least 30 seconds of the new single.
If the machine doesnt start turning this week just forget it. The iheart concert will be just a old hits mini show....

The "Old man Larry" sighting has got me feeling positive.

Which would be particularly sad for them, since Bono has been harping about relevance and hits for half a decade now.
