Big announcement Friday?

Hi everyone,

I heard today that there is supposed to be a big announcement on Friday from U2. Has anyone else heard this? Any thoughts on what it could be about?

Thanks

People are speculating that it'd be the announcement of an album release date, but no one really has any idea.

I think we've reached the point where the fat jokes have joined the leak puns in a very deep layer of Interference hell.

Yes, we've been speculating about this rumor in the new album threads. No one has any idea about how true it is, or what's even going to happen.

(I hope it's true and I hope it's album-related)

It's been being discussed in the new album thread, and the first post has a recap. Sounds like it's just some dude over on another forum who may actually know something (or may not. I don't really give a shit. I'm not counting my chickens until there's an actual release date up on Amazon.)

I hope the announcement turns out to be a weird analogy.

My sources tell me that it will be a U2.com exclusive.

"Magnífico" - Spanish version of Magnificent.

God, until we have word that the sessions have actually finished...this really could drag out to like 2016...I think by that point they would just release what they have or call it a day.

I think the album is imminent though. If they're happy enough with songs like "Invisible" and "Ordinary Love" that they could turn out in their sleep, then I doubt they've been trying to get another album out there that stands with Joshua Tree or Achtung Baby...

In truth, it's a little worrying. I mean, if the material isn't being released because it's not as good as the recently released material, then they have a lot of absolutely crappy songs sitting around as of late. Something to consider.

Get the impression that the delays are because they don't want to only release things as good as the last two albums. I think if you combined the best of the last three albums into one, and recorded / produced it properly it'd be their most complete album, and possibly their best. As it stands they are three of their worst.

My point is, they have probably made three albums like the last three since nloth, now they are combining them into a far greater albun
