Confirmed - Next U2 Album Out in Early 2009

Bono confirms that the next album won't be out until 2009 on here . He's waxing lyrical as usual and I like some of what he says such as.

"The last two records were very personal, with a kind of three piece at their heart, the primary colours of rock - bass, guitars and drum. But what we’re about now is of the same order as the transition that took us from The Joshua Tree to Achtung Baby."

I really hope that is true - I need music like that from U2! Strange though that Daniel Lanois said that the album was almost finished way back in June.

Let's hope the longer wait will be worhtwhile. And, the great thing for me personally, is that the album won't be coming out when I'm away on holiday in November!


  1. I still don't really believe this. We all know Bono does not always talk straight talk, LOL. And if you tell people that the album won't be out until next year, there will be less "disappointment" and if it comes out earlier, everyone will be over the moon. A good ploy, often used by people creating something. I'm not saying it's definitely not true, but I am not taking it as gospel either.

    I can't see Paul giving up the lucrative Christmas present market without a fight either!

  2. I think if it's on it's true, anywhere else I'd wonder but not on the official site.

  3. hi - i was just reading thru some of the posts on your luminous times blog - would you mind if i posted that pic you took of bono in 1995 (swansea) and linked to your post about that night? i think it's great.

    ps - i say if it's a new album in february, they should give us a new single on christmas ;)

  4. Of course you can use the Swansea photo, I love that pic myself - so cheeky!

    Yes a single at Christmas would be a great present for us all!
