The "My God We Need a New Album Because We're All Going Insane" Thread

The title tells the story.

And I think most will agree with this.

Yeah, a new album would certainly be nice.

At least we'll have some concerts/bootlegs to briefly tide us over soon.

I know the Zoo TV Sydney and Vertigo Milan DVDs are coming out soon but does anyone know if any other concerts are being planned for release?

I'm afraid we'll all have to wait till 2007 - although I could be wrong...hopefully.

With all the shit going on in the world...maybe they'll be inspired to put something out there.

Please give me something to listen and hold onto.

I still think October 2007 is a good date for the album. Of course, this is one of the strangest recording situations the band has been through in a long time, so we could either be pleasantly surprised, or greatly disappointed.

Yep, October/November 2007 would be a good time. Honestly, I don't think they can afford to wait until 2008. They aren't a young band any more, and although that shouldn't matter, it does in today's world.

I haven't seen any; that's why I said 'apparently' - I hope it's still going to happen!

If U2 could release a quickee album, ala R&H or "Zooropa", October would be an ideal time. They could once again capitalize on the Christmas holiday season and it would be great new material for the last bit of the tour.

The holiday season sales should never be overlooked. U2 wisely used this to their advantage for R&H, AB, ATYCLB and HTDAAB. Also, both "Best Of" albums were released then. As Bono once said, the goal is to have an album succeed through two holiday seasons. AB, ATYCLB and HTDAAB did that as all of them received significant holiday boots their second Christmas and were still charting then!

But if U2 are to release some sort of half-live/half-studio album or a shorter EP-ish/"Zooropa" type album, then they have to hurry. Time is short and realistically, unless U2 have been working their butts off since their tour stopped, I doubt they'll have it ready in time for a late October release. Don't forget, these days, U2 also needs that HUGE first single. "Discotheque" started out strong, but soon lost favor with fans and this killed poor "Pop". But "Beautiful Day" grew and grew and lifted ATYCLB with it. "Vertigo" had the ubiquitous commercial and was a great rocking song - which in turn lifted HTDAAB. Given how the music industry works today (where even Eminem uses iPod commercials to help sell his albums!), sadly U2 needs this type of commercialism to get heard. Will U2 have time to "strike another deal" and make all the necessary videos and appearances to promote? Again, I doubt it. This isn't 1988 any more, where new U2 was enough to chart a #1 album and a Top 40 hit.

A new album and video would also tie in beautifully with the new video iPod that Apple is going to release around that time.

Isn't there a lot to actually discuss? The tour is about to pick up again, we got soundtrack material from the band, the upcoming DVDS, there's that beach clip that just surfaced.

It's not like there's NOTHING going on in the world of U2.

I think they will bring out a shortish album by the end of the year. Like Zooropa I dont think it needs to have any huge singles, just great music, and I think they are more than capable of that.

Although my head says that this is unlikely, it would be superb. I wish they could just get over the fear of failure that Pop instilled and let things go out there quicker.

that was a fairly barren period, i remember it well!
Only Night and Day came in between I think, though that was fantastic!
I would say that the gap between pop and ATYCLB was fairly long, 3 1/2 years with nothing but the new mix of "the sweetest thing" to whet our whistle!! Gimme night and day anytime!
