U2 reveals release date for new album

- January 17th, 2013

After a few years of rumours, it seems as if there is a new U2 album on the horizon. Or will it be albums?

Drummer Larry Mullen Jr., speaking on Irish television’s “The Dave Fanning Show,” revealed that the band are looking at a summer release date for their 13th studio record, with another set of music out shortly after.

“I’d say we will be finished by the summer — and hopefully we will have something released by September,” Mullen said. “Hopefully what we will be able to do is release (in) September this year and shortly afterwards, release again. That’s what we want to do.”

Britain’s The Sun reported that the working title is “10 Reasons to Exist,” and Bono is quoted as saying they are in “fine fettle.” I guess that’s Irish for “in the zone.”

Mullen Jr. also confirmed that they are still working with Brian Burton, a.k.a., Danger Mouse, who is producing the album.

U2′s last effort, 2009′s “No Line on the Horizon, was well received by critics, but fans, by and large, stayed away — it didn’t sell all that well in comparison to others in their catalogue — largely by the fact that it contained no hit singles.
