U2.com & McGuinness CONFIRM the band is recording!

YAYAYAYAYAYAYAY!!!

first Elvis's news, and now this! Oh, HAPPY day!!!!



from www.u2.com:

U2 Recording, Possible Release 2002

U2's manager Paul McGuinness issued a short statement today,
revealing that the band are in the studio and working on new
material.

"U2 would like to clarify that, contrary to certain speculation in
the press, they will be neither touring Europe this summer, nor
splitting up," said the statement. "Instead, they are spending time
in the studio working on new material for a possible release
later this year."

That's all for now, more as we get it.

Later this year? I doubt it. My guess is we'll be lucky if there's a new album out a year from now. But who knows. It is great news!

I definitely doubt it'll be this year, with the release of the next Best Of and all. However, it seems to definitely going well and I place my bets on next summer/fall.

My cousin's uncle makes all of The Edge's furniture for him, and is in contact with The Edge on almost a daily basis. The Edge told him recently that he wouldn't be going to Los Angeles anytime soon, because they are recording the new album in Dublin. I was thrilled last week to hear this news.

I LOVE IT! Take THAT all the rumours about them "splitting up".

*does the new U2 music dance of joy*

p.s. Chris, does your cousin's uncle need any help around the shop? I could, umm, do all the secretarial work. Y'know, handle all the *ahem* phone calls and such!

The band have made a very smart decision and are doing what Larry said they would do right after the end of the Elevation tour. Larry said that on MTV for the premier of the Beautiful Day video back in September 2000.
They had recorded and worked on a lot of material that they did not put on ATYCLB. Wrote over 100 songs. I'd say the album will be released in November 2002 with May 2003 being the latest date. I predict a worldwide Stadium tour in 2003, but smaller and not as long as POPMART.

I knew that our boys wouldn't let us down!! I am grinning like an idiot. I don't care if it is later this year, or early next year. U2 is not splitting up, and they are busy in the studio working on a new album!! Woo Hoo!! I am sure that a world tour will follow......

*Grins madly*

It's possible that just refers to the two new singles off the Best Of isn't it? The statement doesn't really say anything about a new album. For all we know they could just be working on the Gangs of New York song as well as a reworked bside.

I hope to hell I'm being overly pessimistic and that I'm wrong.

C'mon new album...
