U2's Thirteenth Album: Aimless Uncertainty?

Continue here. Latest updates:

- Billboard reported that U2's album has now been pushed back to 2015.
- The Guardian then reported that a knowledgeable source indicated that the album is still on track for a 2014 release.
- Neil McCormick jokingly suggested that the album will not be released before 2017, before reporting (seemingly honestly) that U2 are still in the studio "chasing magic", and that the album will be great.
- The Mysterious Fisher made several claims allegedly based on semi-insider information about U2's questionable financial condition, shenanigans in the 1990s, and whatnot, with the punchline roughly being that there are deep divisions creating some amount of chaos in the U2 camp.

Since were allowed to dream..... I'd like a deluxe version of the album with an extra disc where the band recorded a live version of each song on the album in the studio. Just the 4 of them playing with no overdubs or production trickery.

I want a DVD along with the new album. I don't know what....surprise me!

(I wonder how long it will take, before this thread self-destructs into madness?)

They could release a super deluxe with a DVD Audio (high resolution audio accompanied by some pleasant video artwork, you know, the visual experience Bono was talking about lately - you insert the DVD and enjoy it all) and a DVD Video including raw performances of the main songs of the album. Oseary please read this, I'd be a sure buyer.

Still dreaming....... remember a few weeks ago when the Edge said some of their stuff was too far 'out there' or something like that. He said they needed to reel it in a bit.... I'd like on the deluxe version for a chance to hear this out there stuff. Could be bad or it could really be great.

I'd be happy if all we got was 128kbps DRM-ed AAC at this point.

Why is there no footnote to the "Mysterious Fishers" claims to the effect that his earlier claims re album release and tour schedule turned out to be false/fraudulent piles of rubbish?

I mean given his track record, his shot credibility and all, I wouldn't put much stock in what he says, personally

Oh but we don't want to talk about that.

When he made those claims, though, might it have been possible that his claimed dates were indeed tentatively penciled in? I'm not saying that he wasn't just making something in, but it's not like what he said was unreasonable.
