New Album "Ready to Go" according to Adam

From the July 2 Rolling Stone article "Adam Clayton on Quarantine Life, U2’s SiriusXM Channel and Future Plans"

Finally, are you working on new songs for the next U2 record?
We are. There’s always something on the go, as I’m sure Edge mentioned. We did some recording last year that got us some really great starting points and complete songs. There’s an album ready to go, we’re just not ready to sure when we want to press that button.

Oh. Wow.
When I say ready to go, I mean ready to be completed. Let’s put it that way.

New Album "Ready to Go" according to Adam

It’s nowhere near done. Reading between the lines it sounds like like they still need to record it and then rewrite them again two times.

I hope Bono truly takes this break in from the pandemic and rests up. He’s had a rough go the past few years. I don’t mind the wait.

Fuck that clickbait title.

He clarifies what "ready to go" means and by their practices we're talking 2+ years.

New U2 Album Ready To Be Overcooked By 12 Pop Producers

We really want them to move quickly on providing hooks for us that we will claim as our own, says The Edge.

For what it’s worth:

It’s very, very fresh. We’ve cut everything quite quickly. We’re coming to things in a shorthand way. The feedback we get from that is pretty good. We want to be quick, down and dirty with the next one.


Of course, saying you’re going to be more spontaneous/expedient and actually following through on that are two different things.

They say that with every album cycle and never follow through.

We can only hope that they’re getting too old to want to drag it out for their usual extended period. I’s be willing to bet at least two of them don’t want to do that shit anymore (namely the rhythm section).

Indeed, so this is merely the beginning of another 3-5 year recording cycle and the album will actually be released no earlier than 2023.

Something inside me dies whenever an established group says Oh we just want to get back to basics, four guys in a room, crank out some good old rock.

Sorry, but that's been done. Over and over and over. By hundreds of lesser groups than U2.
If they can bring some new ideas to the table, then bring them.
