U2 back in the USA @ 11:33 pm

packofpoodles:
While I know that Vertigo '06 will be taking the band to the Southern hemisphere for quite some time and there's still a big, bad world out there for Bono to save and all..has anyone heard anything about when we might hear a new U2 album? It seems that jones for U2 knows no bounds and seeing them live semi-recently has only added to my devotion. I am now wondering why I didn't go to more shows when I could have! Enlighten me...if anyone has any info.

I heard some time ago that U2 wanted to rerecord "POP". Claiming they had to rush it due to touring commitments. I don't know if it's still valid, but it's the only thing I've heard.

Pretty sure that one's been debunked-thank goodness *clutches Pop album to her chest*

Glad to hear that.

It seems silly to work backwards like that. I liked Pop the way it is.

How could possibly improve "Wake Up Dead Man"?

Keep your eye there would be my best bet :)

My guess? Going by the pattern of the previous albums, 2008...they'll finish the tour in April, take some time off. The band will reconvene towards the end of the year and spend most of 2007 working on the new material, and we'll see something sometime in 2008.

In the meantime we'll see ZooTv and PopMart on DVD, and probably a few other archival-type releases as well, I'm guessing. Not having a new studio album hasn't kept U2 from releasing things, although since it's too early for another best-of, they might have to get a little more creative. (I'm also thinking an upgrade and remastering of their CD catalog might be in order...either high-res audio with 5.1 mixes, or revamped editions with bonus tracks)

I'm with the comment above, I think it'll be late 2008 or early 2009. Too far away.

Edge mentioned in an interview appearing in a Grammy preview insert in the latest issue of Rolling Stone (with Kanye West on the cover) that they are planning on going into this studio early this year.
