New Album Discussion (Is Headache Going To The Superbowl?)

ha!

What we think we know:

- U2 may be announcing their album as a commercial during the Super Bowl

- Recent rumors suggest that the new album will be released in April.

- The Packers are definitely not going to the Super Bowl this year.

Like the last new album time, maybe it would be helpful for whoever starts the thread to summarize what has been going on so far and provide any links etc, so that people that want to just read news dont have to sift through a million posts. If someone could summarize that would be great.

Interesting bit from DMITD

Quote:
Interesting little tidbit regarding U2 — Matt Pinfield says DM told him he was working with U2 “a year and a half before the Rome project came out” which would put it in 2009, earlier than is usually reported.
so DM might have had a hand in the songs being worked during the Songs of Ascent days.. which confirms what Lanois had claimed earlier this year.

So this album may not be a total sellout?

Overcooked seems practically inevitable.

But anyway, I can't wait until he gives his first interview on the project.

I'd like to think that U2 learned their lesson after NLOTH

songs they claimed to be close to their original state: No Line, MOS, Unknown
songs they worked on for a while (and worked on again, and worked on again): Crazy, Boots, SUC, Breathe

What's new in the last two weeks:

- confirmation that Danger Mouse is still our producer, not Lillywhite, or anyone else
- confirmation that Ordinary Love will get a video release at some point in the next 10 days (edit: and confirmation that Danger Mouse produces)
- two different months are being bandied about as release times. One article claims March, others: April.
- we can expect to have new album news announced via a Super Bowl advert on Feb 2

I missed this. So looks like a Danger Mouse production of Ordinary Love, nice!

Interesting, as I was listening to NLOTH this weekend, and the Crazy Tonight, Stand Up Comedy and Boots triumvirate just guts the album for me. Replace these songs with just about anything else they must have recorded during that time and it probably elevates the album from good to great.

Can we get a perma sticky that can be added to each new thread? Its a lot of work for a poster to sum everything up every 1000 posts...

This is a perfect summation in my opinion also. While Crazy Tonight I must say I don't hate and SUC, well kinda sucks it's the last one that is the big turd in the swimming pool.... my hatred for this song is becoming legendary around here. You're right replace these three with anything that album is great.

Well then I would need someone to pm me every time there's some substantial news so that I can add it to the sticky thread. It would have to be a closed thread just for news.

Still get some perks here and there from friends... just not the super bowl.

Two is two more than most people get to go to though, so complaints are at a minimum.
