Well, Lanois said in a recent Rolling Stone that the band would be back in the studio in November (and I think I heard that someone else said they would be back in the studio in September too?), so the album being written by no means means it's ready to hit the store.
And it seems likely that NME took his words slightly out of context for the headline. I kinda doubt the whole thing is completely written already. But the whole thing does give me slightly more hope for a spring release. But it'll probably be next fall, just because that's how U2 normally do things.

The line about the biscuits is cute though.

I, too, snorted a little when I saw that article. From the Lanois quotes I've read, I didn't see any part where he said they'd finished writing the album!

This is what I see happening:

U2 Album #12 - August 25/26, 2008
Album #12 Tour - October 2008

I could be wrong though, and this could be a quick and creative recording session for them, which sees the album out in March or April and a tour starting in May.
