U2 New Album in 2013 | U2013 [MERGED]

Recommended Posts

Arcade Fire will release their fourth album in 2013, it has been confirmed today, alongside a host of other huge albums due from record label Mercury
The fourth album from the Canadian band would be the follow-up to 2010’s critically acclaimed ‘The Suburbs’ and is confirmed for a 2013 release.
This will be Arcade Fire’s first release since their song for ‘The Hunger Games’ soundtrack. 
The track ‘Abraham’s Daughter’ was written specifically for the film, with frontman Win Butler telling Entertainment Weekly: “Our whole approach was to get into the world and try to create something that serves the story and the film. There's something in the story of Abraham and Isaac that I think resonates with the themes in the film, like sacrificing children. So we made a weird, alternate-universe version of that.â€
Mercury Records also confirmed new albums from Metallica, U2 and Noah and the Whale, which will all contribute towards a good year for the record label.
UK label president Jason Iley said: "2013 could be one of the best years Mercury's ever had."

VERY IMPORTANT QUOTE HERE I THINK.

 

"Mercury Records also confirmed new albums from Metallica, U2 and Noah and the Whale, which will all contribute towards a good year for the record label."

Given that this is coming from an official record label, and not Bono's bongolese rambling, the pinch of salt with which I take news about U2's new album will this time be less 'salty'.

Mercury Records, which is U2's label in the UK, has apparently announced that U2 will release its next album in 2013. The news was reported a few hours ago in a pair of tweets by the London-based Music Week.

"2013 could be one of the best years Mercury's ever had," said UK label president Jason Iley.

Iley is a friend of U2's going back many years. In fact, U2 left Island Records in the UK for Mercury Records in part, the story goes, because the band wanted to continue working with him. So, he would seem to know what he's talking about.

I'd just add this caution: U2's record labels have previously announced when new albums would be released, and U2 has sometimes missed those target dates (think Pop). Mercury may expect a new album next year, but U2 generally decides when it's ready to put out a new album, whether the label likes it or not.

I'm starting to get really annoyed by al this "we've been working on 3738 albums and we don't know what to do with it"-thing.

 

I prefer they shut up for 4 years and then surprise us with something, not uninteresting U22 news we've been hearing about for months now.

Think if I remember it could be a 3 album + tours deal. So we got 2 albums and 2 tours left possibly?!... On the LN deal anyway.
