Next Album Rumours Thread III - The Gospel of Adam

May we all turn to Mr. Clayton during these tough times for not only style inspo, but also for the non-hyperbole soundbites about what might be next.

Adam went from the coolest looking bass player to Gandalf The White. I kind of like it..

(I assume he'll clean up before next tour, haha)

Lo, there was a declaration of album cuts;
the psalms and songs not heard in ages.
And a single commandment:
“Thou shalt not take Pop’s name in vain.”
Together, the mothers of the disappeared
and the posters of the interfered waited,
praying and sometimes raving,
that there’d be no line to sign next time.

It’s like conditioner didn’t arrive on Ireland’s shores until 1993.

looks like rockstar money was pouring in by then, judging by that sweet casio watch.

Wouldn't be surprised if they thought there was no point getting the album process started in earnest if they couldn't do a big promo tour/live debuts, then a stadium tour. They're probably waiting for things to settle back down to 'normal' before they start seriously working on something.

...he mentions that they want to go back and finish a project they started last year. (2019)

“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.”


But also:

But he admits that they have not recorded anything this year.

Yes, but the interview with Adam is new, he just refers back to the "work" they started in 2019 which are those comments.

Its no surprise though is it. I guess the thing is that local touring will probably start up in some countries next Spring/Summer, but globetrotting massive tours for bands like U2 might not be possible/practical/profitable until 2022?

Which is probably neither here nor there given how slow they are to work and release new material.

They will bring out a covid inspired album in about 2023,once the pandemic is long gone. (Hopefully)!

Earliest for any U2 is gonna be Fall 2021 but I'm betting on Spring/Summer 2022 w/ a big tour.

I think for 2021 the concert industry is mostly going to be playing catchup after 2020, at best. I have tickets for concerts that were rescheduled for next June, and I'm kind of doubting those will be able to happen. If everything CAN go ahead as planned next summer, venues are going to be swamped with rescheduled 2020 shows in addition to some new 2021 shows.

Therefore, I think U2 will be called upon to stage a massive tour in 2022 to help give the concert industry a much needed boost. The timing works anyway, because U2 were probably planning to not tour until 2022 at the earliest anyway. My prediction is that they'll do a new album/tour rollout in early 2022. I guarantee that Edge has been working away on musical ideas, Bono on lyrics and conceptual ideas for the next album, and those two have probably at least been working together on things. Adam and Larry aren't probably needed for a lot of the legwork.

I think the timeline for the next album and tour won't really be affected by covid, because we already knew a long break was coming in 2020-2021 anyway.

I can't blame them for taking the opportunity of the world slowing down to chill. Plus, I guess Bono's had his book to work on. It was just jarring to hear that they hadn't done really done anything in 2020. I guess those few soundbites from various folks over the Summer made it seem like happenings were more current than they were.

I wonder if Oceania will all of a sudden have an embarrassment of touring riches over the next couple of years.

I would be surprised if NO progress has been made on the album this year. But like I said, probably just Bono and Edge writing songs and ideas. They probably know that they don't have to release an album until late 2021 - early 2022, so they decided to just chill for the year.
