Next Album Rumours Thread IV - 2 Sing 2 Furious

Previous thread was at 1003.

Will THIS be the thread during which a new album is announced? Will it even be the thread during which the JT30 movie is announced? Are U2 even a band anymore?

Important, valid questions. Hopefully all will be revealed within the next 1,000 posts!!
At least we know Bono and Edge are still making music together...

As cool as it would be to see U2 win an Oscar (especially when their hopes for a Tony failed so miserably), this sure ain’t like winning for a Martin Scorsese film or a film about Mandela.

Oh, the indignity.

Agreed. No one really cared that "Can You Feel The Love Tonight" by Elton John was a part of a cartoon. Fuck I don't even know if that won an Oscar. If it didn't, it should have.

the song from the mandela movie also lost to an animated feature. and as much as he has tried, it appears that bono has yet to let it go.

Instead he decided to let himself go.

I mean, serious acting talent shows up all the time in animated movies, pretty much since Robin Williams in Aladdin. I know rock stars are different, but Prince was on Sesame Street. I don’t see why this has to be an embarrassment.

Hopefully he can shake off the weight in time to perform next spring. Also seems like a good starting point for the return of U2.

Oh are they doing a song for Sing 2 as well?

I'll be honest, Bono's voice in the trailer is cracking me up in a good way. Since I'm a stan, of course I'm going to see it, but I've been to the movie theater so many times in the last two weeks and that trailer has played in front of almost every movie (I think Candyman might be the only one it didn't). I'm seriously going to lose it soon.

Here's to hoping it's not too sugary or cheesy.

Please don't use this as a platform for more food jokes.

If you didn't want more food jokes, why did you set up such a tempting springboard?

The one thing Sing 2 might teach the band (if the song is actually good and successful) is that embracing their age is ok, and that a band in their early 60's being known as "Dad Rock" is acceptable. They've been running away from that trying to "Rawk" which is ridiculous to begin with because they've never "Rawked" in the first place.

I feel the showman would have been an appropriate song for this?

Let's see who produces it. If it's TeddyBear, then we'll get lots of cheese (albeit probably very catchy).

Bono and Edge need to stop trying so hard to write a Beatles tune.

I'm in the mood for an album full of Velvet Cake...I mean Dress, Velvet Dress. Give me dark and brooding Bono. Edge with the effects.

Bono talked about making a "blue" album way back in the Passenger days, why not give us one while they wait for the tours to kick back in?

It’s probably better and catchier than anything new they’re likely to contribute.
