RD- any indication how long we will have to wait for the possible Rolling Stone reveal? Band is in NY right now, so maybe the Jann sit down just happened in last 2 days and thats why u heard the rumor (unless u'd actually heard it long ago).
Rolling Stone usually sits on their piece and releases a U2 cover close to a bigger event like album drop or tour debut. So i cant picture them releasing it before week of Dec 1. Unless maybe they want to drop the big scoop before it gets out elsewhere?

All of a sudden certain lyrics take on a whole new meaning.

Could be why they decided to hold off on all the album news. Maybe retirement is also now part of the announcement.

And assuming it does end up being the album's closer, pretty poignant to have the whole "sometimes" part be potentially the final words we hear from them.

Let's not start spiraling out of control here.

It's not something we can control or wish to be true or not true by typing on a forum.

Obviously something came up with Bono over the past year. I can't imagine if his life is in danger that they'd just sit on it.

These guys are getting up there in age and Bono has had a ton of bad luck with his health over the last decade.

Plus, Bono can't keep his mouth shut. Whatever he went through was personal but if it was what people are reaching for in this thread, I'm sure he'd say something.

I just can't imagine these guys retiring.

Stop touring? Absolutely. Stop making music? Nah dawg.

If you play The Little Things backward, you can hear Edge muttering "I buried Paul."

Try Blackout backwards. Larry is muttering "I will bury them all, Saul."

Hmm, well whatever it was that happened (if there was something at all... love RD's contributions here but this sort of cryptic stuff is not productive IMO) they seem to be fully past it. The band is energized, is wrapping up a huge and we'll received tour, and is on the cusp of putting out a relatively quick follow-up up with 3 very solid song that have gotten great reactions this far.

I'd say they are in a pretty good spot at the moment. If this is the last album cycle or second to last (RD's hints about Songs or Ascent ARE exciting!) I'm going to enjoy the hell out of it, and I hope they do too.

Yeah the band seem fine. I guess I read it as a marriage thing. But speculation is stupid, cupid.

Non of us know what's up with Bono or the band or what the future holds for them, but let's just take a minute and relax until they announce or make a statement on whatever issues they are having. It is no point to worry and freak out right now. Ofcourse we wish Bono and co the very best but let's not jump the guns and assume it it's the worst because we simply just don't know! Just enjoy the moment now as we are on the verge of a new album. I am sure u2 would want us to enjoy this moment and not worry about anything. When they are ready to tell us something is wrong, I'm sure they will. And if this is the last album, I will forever be greatful to them for all the amazing music they have given us. I grew up with u2 like many of us have and their music has been by my side through tough moments and nothing will ever take that fact away. So let's all enjoy the fact that we have another album and tour ahead of us! With all that said, I hope if there is an issue I hope it's not health related, we certainly want to see the members of our favorite band be healthy and happy for many years to come wether there will be a u2 band or not after this album.

Maybe Bono just had a little health scare that turned out to be nothing, or easily treatable. He had a similar thing happen in the time between Popmart and ATYCLB, which required throat surgery.

If it were something that presented an immediate threat, I don't believe they'd be pushing so hard with this stadium tour and then the new album, and another tour next year.

Yeah. I think the lyrics from Best Thing says exactly this?

"You're the best thing about me... The best things are easy to destroy... Why am I walking away?.. "

Also "I can see you love her loudly, when she needs you quietly". This reminds me of when Bono explained Ordinary Love. He said Mandela and Winnie had extraordinary love for each other but not the ordinary everyday love.

So apparently no album date announcement date on Fallon... can't believe they didn't pair this big week of promo with an album release date. Just so weird.

I mean, I know NYT confirmed it as the 1st and Bono said it was the 1st of December, but still...

I guess we'll get the tracklist/artwork/pre-order with the next single, which will probably come out after the JT tour ends? Just a guess.

I really think they are past whatever issues came up last year and if they're not past them, why in the world would they do TJT this year. Also Bono said if this is their last album, not this is our last album. Him saying if says to me who knows what the future holds. I'm sure there's a plan for SOA in a few years and that could be it. How about one more album after that and call it Man so we know that's it.
