U2 Album in 2014 Still Possible


After back-and-forth rumors about U2 releasing its follow-up to the hugely disappointing 2009 effort No Line on the Horizon, it seems yet again that 2014 is the year.

According to Rolling Stone, a spokesperson for the band has been quoted saying it’s now. “We’ve always said an album is expected this year.”

The band has been working on this album for a good five years now and to quote The Edge, “We really want the songs to be right. That’s the only reason why we’re not on tour – because we’re so good at starting, not so good at finishing. That’s always the way it’s been.” So it’s fair that after some not-so-good reception with the single “Invisible” that was released after the Super Bowl, the band is taking some more time to perfect this album. The band has allegedly also been working with producers the likes of Danger Mouse, Will.i.am, David Guetta, etc. Just to name a few.

Rolling Stone also has some inside info on a bit of a timeline crafted with the album. The article states “The French newspaper Nice-Matin reported that the group shot a new video in Nice, France, the other week, and the Irish Times quotes a source saying there will be a single in September, an album in September or October and a tour announced in December, with dates beginning in April of next year.”

It still all seems up in the air, but whatever happens, it seems like we’re on the doorstep of new U2. Keep your eyes peeled to UTG for further coverage and news regarding U2.
