September or November is U2 Ready ?

The Irish Examiner has reported that the boys are planning to release their 13th studio album this November, yes we said November 2014. Now while we all know that the press maybe off a day or too the Irish Examiner seems to be on track most of the time. Sources close to U2TOURFANS suggest that in fact we could be looking at a new album this year.

Apple’s iTunes Festival schedule of gigs at the Roundhouse in Camden, North London in September have you U2 on the bill which means the boys could in fact test out the new material.

Bono has not felt the magic and has been suffering from writers block and the process has been a challenge for everyone. 

A source has suggested, “The U2 comeback is very much on for this year. This album has been a real struggle for them to make.

In addition, we heard that the wait would be worth it.  We all know that U2 is worth the wait we can only trust that Bono believes in U2.

New Music from Bono’s House

First posted earlier this morning this recording from Bono’s house.  U2 ‘Song For Someone’ This is nothing new from the stand point of fans recording music coming out of Bono’s house. Now of course we all want to know if we should consider this to be “new” music.  We reported earlier today that U2 will be delayed at at least to 2015. Now this could change however it really is not as fluid you would think. Lots of moving parts need to all line up for this to close before 2015.

U2 Fans will have to wait until 2015 

What has happened to the magic?  Over the last few months, it seems that the magic has left the building. U2 expected to release a new album this year with a stadium tour in the summer and it seems that the whole thing stalled out in Dublin.  The album we like to call “Lucky 13” seems to be taking longer to finish and while some may say that’s ok because the whole album will capture the magic again.

Rumors suggest that the band was looking creative support on this project and this was the reason to push to 2015.  Remember this is a self-imposed release date nothing official was announced.

"We’ve always needed collaborators to challenge us," says drummer Larry Mullen. "We’re slow learners. We need to be creative, on the cutting edge, challenged, and it’s really hard going, it’s relentless, and we’re relentless, and we have a history of breaking engineers, producers. I mean, people come out of working with U2 and just go, ‘I just don’t know what’s happened; it feels like a lifetime has passed by.’ And that’s just the way we work."

Bono then added: “The album won’t be ready till it’s ready. However, right now, people are walking a little differently — well, they are not walking, they are running as if to a finish line. There are a couple of songs that are part of the story we have not quite finished. We know we have to spend a couple of years taking these songs around the world, so they’d better be good.”

Bono’s comments suggest a world tour will follow shortly after the release of the new project. Will it be worth the wait or have we already experienced the best that U2 has to offer?  Time will tell.
