That's interesting, and would be a very quick turnaround between announcement and release if it does come out on the rumoured 18 Nov 2022 date.

U2songs also says on another page that they're expecting an announcement in the next few weeks - it's clearly text from earlier in the summer and could well be out of date, but they updated that page several times to reflect new release date rumours, SoS song titles etc, presumably they would've removed that rumour if it was no longer true. Though obviously it contradicts the above.

Would think an imminent announcement would be more likely for a release this year, and a November announcement if it's pushed to early 2023?

All I'm saying is that this Songs of Surrender/Memoir nonsense is taking time away from U2 actually releasing a new album and going on tour. I'm not really interested in SOS, I just want another damned tour!!!

Same. We get it Bono. You had a not so great relationship with your da, your mom sadly passed away at a young age, and you kind of can’t stand yourself. Can we move on yet?

Funny how people are angry about a possible delay to an album that hasn't been announced yet.

You basically summed up this whole board. Would be great to get a reimagined album of songs this year, atleast digital, vinyl maybe next year and a proper new album and tour next, they’ve had enough time for sure over the last couple years.

People still won't be happy I'm afraid,it's just endless puns on here nowadays!

Some puns are better than others.

It's ridiculous to think that someone of Bono's fame and stature isn't going to release an autobiography. If not now, when? There's so much crap out there. There is no ghost writer and what we've seen so far has been very engaging and reminded me why I really grew to like and relate to the guy in the first place.

I don't know what more people expected from the U2 of the last decade or so. They finished up the highest grossing tour in history to that point (360) wrote a very cohesive, compelling and energetic album (SOI). They then came back from the Apple fiasco/bike accident to crush a tour in 2015. They then had a very successful JT 30 tour that won them praise and never went through the motions. SOE, (a flawed album that almost everyone agrees had tremendous highs) another amazing tour (especially in Europe) then an Australian/Asian leg of JT.

That brings us to COVID. Since ability to tour was demonstrably up in the air until this past Spring, none of this is a surprise or anything that should be held against them. They weren't going to tour without a new album anyways, and they weren't going to finish an album in 2020, release it and likely not be able to tour.

We can all criticize what they've released and choices they've made. I'm plenty critical. But it blows my mind when people criticize their rate of output.

They've been about as prolific as possible since the release of "Ordinary Love."

The only break in action that both felt excessive to me and very likely made the quality of work suffer was the time between the end of the Vertigo Tour and NLOTH.

Songs of _________________; New album discussion #7

http://https://www.kirkusreviews.com/book-reviews/bono/surrender-bono/



Looks like we got an early review from Kirkus. Appears to be mostly positive.



It would seem those hoping for Bono to tell all, and dish the dirt on the band are going to be very disappointed. Not surprised, and even though some will hee and haw, I think it's the respectable and classy thing to stay buttoned up about some stuff. It makes sense to keep it about himself and not the band - even if it is much to the chagrin of some. Still, I am very eager to read what he has to say about Pop and the iTunes debacle, since the review says Bono addresses them.



All in all, I still can't wait to read this.

I feel that there isn't really a lot of dirt on the band, other than perhaps Adam.
