BREAKING NEWS! New U2 album out soon(ish)
Finally some news on the long awaited new U2 album. Music-news.com reports that the new album "might be called Sirens", but no confirmed release date had been set. Universal Music in Columbia tweeted "#noticias para los seguidores de @U2. El disco se va a titular #Sirens y estarÃ¡ listo en el mes de septiembre" which translates roughly to "For fans of U2. The album Sirens will be ready in September." They went on to report that the tweet was deleted fairly quickly and it was later revealed that the tweet was wrong. The question is, was it wrong or was it an accidental leak? Meanwhile, an article in the Irish Examiner says that the band's new album will be out in November despite Bono suffering from writer's block. The paper quotes London's The Sun which said "The U2 comeback is very much on for this year. This album has been a real struggle for them to make. It's taken a long time and Bono didn't find it easy but they feel very confident now and are convinced the wait has been worth it." ...or, maybe it will be out next year. Sirens, or whatever the final name is for the album, will be U2's first album since 2009's No Line on the Horizon.
