It will come out on July the 1st and it will contain 11 tracks which will all sound a bit unready. But the tour is just round the corner and U2 will have to stop recording before everything┤s worked out.

Remember that our boys are perfectionists (or will be from here on out) when it comes to albums. Summer seems early.

Anyone want to start a pool (actually place bets)?

I'll say they release an EP (my guess is 5-6 new songs) in late May, then tour Europe over the summer. Then a full album very early 2003, followed by a stadium tour.

At this point based on what I am hearing I'd say full album in June or July, Bono says the fans will be surprised how close they already are.

But Caution: Bono SAYS

He said alot of stuff about ATYCLB...

i heard on the radio yesterday that Bono has said most of the songs are actually done.
The dj said Bono also said it has a 'punk' feel to it.

I can't see them doing an EP, somehow. Sure Zooropa started out with that in mind, and look what happened. I think their ambition will get ahold of them in the studio, as it always does.

Prediction: An album no sooner than early 2003. Prediction 2: it won't sound anything like Bono says it will. Prediction 3: The critics will tear it to shreds regardless of quality.

As much as I would like a new album next week, I think this might be what will happen.

If we were taking bets....

...When will the new album come out? I've heard as soon as this summer but that seems a little early.

Any insights or predictions?

hey look, another Minnesotan! Welcome.

I think there are some threads around here dealing with this subject. errr..but I don't remember the dates. My guess is an album sometime later this year.

I agree with sula. At the very latest I'd say early 2003.

Keeping my fingers crossed for June/July... think they'll try and release something either during or before the tour so they can use the hype to promote it

But dubious about whether it will be as good as Bono says....

I think those of you that think it wont be until 2003 are in for a very big surprise. But we shall see. As said before U2 have been known to suddenly change their minds and take an album in a different direction, so 2003 is a possibility. But I dont think that is going to happen. Get ready, summer 2002 with a stadium tour in Europe to support it. Europe is in for a big time treat!

I hope I'm surprised. That's the whole point of being a pessimist.

RE: Kieran McConville;

I agree with your predictions too. The thing with U2 is that they are unpredictable (ok, that was cliche). Not because of POP either. But because they work on the fly and make it up as they go.....which is exciting, if not a good thing and a bad thing.

I fear that they're going make another album based on what they think is going to be a movement, a la POP, where techno was coming alive. If they make a punk album I'll be surprised and appreciative, but I would also see it as slightly pathetic. My final prediction is that they'll make a record probably somewhere between Ryan Adams, GOLD, and The White Stripes. Something with rough edges and some alt.country vibe.

I don't think we'll know until it happens. :-)

I think that we will have an album by the end of 2002!! Perhaps not by the summer time, since they seem to be pretty busy (Gangs of New York Soundtrack, Superbowl, Grammy's, Private Parties, etc)!!!
