New album in October? @ 03:01 am

I'm currently feelin: optimistic optimistic

New album in October? It would seem so.

The news article about Paul McGuinness vs. illegal downloaders has already been posted, so let's not get into that.

However, another article on the subject has surfaced, which features an interesting tidbit:

"U2 will release a new album in October, Mr McGuinness said, which would be a collaboration with the producers Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois."

This is not really news, as fans have been saying 'Fall 08' since at least late 2005 =P But this does narrow it down from 'October or November', and sooner is always better, so yay for October. This hypothetically means the first single could be out as early as August. Maybe it'll be all awesome and politically charged in time for the presidential elections.
Or maybe that's dumb hope. It'll probably be some lame song called 'The Heart of Kneeling Souls' =P (note, I can't take credit for that song title, someone on Interference came up with it some months back ;P)

Maybe it will be the Interference EP:

1. The Heart of Kneeling Souls
2. Stop (The Poverty)
3. Start (To Kneel)
4. Mercy

It will have a count of 20 kpm (kneels per minute).

*sigh* Another 4th quarter release, eh McGuinness?

They should be releasing a single NOW, hot on the heels of their amazing film, and putting out the new album this summer. That way they would get the attention of fans that are either new or less than loyal. I know that most of us will wait patiently for new material, but it seems like U23D is getting tons of attention from more than just U2 fans. Wouldn't it make sense to capitalize on that rather than just hope that the loyal fanbase is willing to wait until that supposedly 'golden' 4th quarter?

While I'm happy to have another album and all that jazz, it's quite disappointing when they're (tentatively) releasing it. Yes, let's do October again--because it hasn't been done before. Because it's not right before the holidays and all that comes with that. Mmmm hmm

I kind of agree with everyone else about the whole "another fall release" part, but I'd be lying if I didn't say I don't care all that much since all this really means to me is more concerts! :)
And the only reason I'm taking this more seriously than all the speculated 'New Album in fall 08' rumors is, obviously, because McGuinness said it.

A new album in October makes me dream of a new tour in spring 2009 (on time with their infamous 4-years-inbetween-tours)... so I'm all for it :-D and I'm excited about the new songs!!
still, this is just a rumour, but a good one since it's coming from Paul. Let's keep our fingers crossed.

Well, as with All That You Can't Leave Behind and How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb, it looks like the new album's going to be... a promise in the year of election. *rimshot*

At one point I heard of "two" albums in the works, a regular studio album and a Passengers-like album with Eno and Lanois. I wonder if that's still true
