"new U2 Album Should Come In June"

Recommended Posts

By Roger Friedman

 

The new U2 album should come in June. So says Bono, to me, at the Weinstein Company party following the Golden Globes. Bono and U2 won the Globe for their song “Ordinary Love” from the movie “Mandela.” The group held court on a platform of couches, entertaining friends including Usher on Sunday night before taking off to an after party said to be at 1Oak on Sunset Boulevard.

 

The group had just played at Sean Penn’s Haiti fundraiser on Saturday night with a young Haitian singer named Anaelle Jean-Pierre. I sat with Bono at the Weinstein party and praised him for his passion about politics, Mandela, Africa, etc.

 

“We’re persistent, I’ll say that,” he replied with a rueful chuckle. “I don’t think we’re the only ones who care. I think lots of people do. They just don’t have the opportunity.”

 

Bono told me the group was busy finishing the new album. “We’re still working some things out,” he said. In the meantime, they will release a new single in the next few weeks. It’s called– and this is exclusive– “Invisible.” “It’s not what you expect,” Bono told me. “It’s not your typical love song.”

I don't want to get my hopes up again and then hear them say, "oh no, it's due out in Fall or by December now."  It'll be great if we get to hear a new song soon though.

I'm just glad these songs arent going to be on the new album. Not because they are bad but because I want to not be familiar with any of the songs until I listen to the entire album

I'm quite happy for them to keep knocking out singles. As much as I'd like to see an album this year, any new material is a step in the right direction for these guys.

 

If it's right what the band keeps banging on about how many new song they have, we may miss some gems on a straight up album release.

 

Hopefully a few singles will turn up with some new corking B sides.

The information comes bit by bit.

The Los Angeles Times wrote on December 19 that Invisible will be a track on the new album U2 is working on.

U2.com mentioned on January 12 that Invisible will be released as part of an initiative with (RED) to support the fight against AIDS.

Now Bono states Invisible will be the new single.

And he doesn't talk anymore about a new album in April, but in June.

U2 CONFIRMS NEW SONG CALLED 'INVISIBLE'
 
For (RED) Project, No Mention of Super Bowl

@U2, January 12, 2014

By: Matt McGee

 

U2 has shed a little bit of light on what the band has been doing for the past week or so in Santa Monica. A short update on U2.com confirms that the band has been doing a video shoot involving a new song called "Invisible" -- that title wasmentioned not too long ago in a Los Angeles Times article. The song will be released as part of an AIDS-fighting project with (RED), U2.com reports.

The official update is more notable for what it doesn't say than what it does. There's no mention of the song/project being tied to a Super Bowl commercial, which all of our sources (and many in attendance during last week's video shoot) said it was. There's also no mention of whether "Invisible" is part of U2's next album, or if it's just being released for this (RED) project.

Just happy we are getting another single soon  though I am still hoping for the Album to drop in April instead of June.  :)

starting to think that U2 feel a little bad for delaying the album for so long, that they come with "Invisible" now to please the fans, maybe...

Yeah, I'm kinda feeling the same way. However, I'd rather they release it when they're ready so I wait patiently. :P
