'Once' director joins with Bono and The Edge for Dublin-set 'Sing Street'

Is there time for? Isn't there a new album to be finished?

 

 

Funny thing...fans are just now picking up on this bit of information...this is old news people.

 

This is why I didn't cry out back in March when the rumor was that it wouldn't be ready till 2015...I wasn't surprised at all.

 

This news came out back on February 6th...not only did I post it on my Facebook timeline, but I posted it here in the Zoo too.

 

Strange that people are just now doing the math.....you can't make an album while doing a side project folks...and when Edge said they would be "busy this summer", it had nothing to do with the album, it had to do with taking on this project.

 

Here's the first post about it...posted from than no other our favorite news site...

Just saying...With so many rumors abound within the media outlets, in regard to a release date...very anxious for new material here as the wait is driving me crazy, you know what I mean... Don't cry wolf

While we sit waiting for a new U2 album or a decent single can we expect a live album, DVD, remix album, demo album or ANYTHING?


 


 


To be honest the days of standing in line waiting to get my hands on the latest album or single have passed when it comes to U2 and I shall be downloading before I spend money on anything from now on.

Just listened to Invisible again. Makes me want this new album right here right now! On the one hand I'm impatient, but on the other hand it gives me more time to save for tour tickets.

Could We All Be Working On The Next Album?

 

How much is that forthcoming album worth to you? We've all done our share of expressing our desires and frustrations in this long time of waiting, but is there something we could be doing to actually help the band along?

.

Are you willing to give up some of your free time for it?  Take a risk with a crazy notion of mine?

.

Bono has said they are waiting for God to enter the room where/when they are working on the new songs.  If the lads (at least 3 of the 4) are as spiritual as they have claimed to be in the past, I would guess that they have spent no little time praying for this to happen.  I doubt they are just hanging out waiting to hear a knock on the door.

But, believers, have YOU been praying for God's presence to be made known in that room?  I, for one, believe that God is always there, but it does seem that lads are having a bit of a time detecting God's presence.

And so, I wonder... what would happen if all of the believing U2 fans made a concerted effort to pray for divine inspiration to come to Bono and the band.  Would it make a difference to the band, knowing that thousands of fans are praying for them?  Would it change the outcome of the new CD?

I can't prove that it will make a difference, but I think I'll start that prayer.  Can't hurt.  Will anyone join me?

Is this what we've become....a bunch of old nagging, demanding groupies? You've just stated you won't even buy whatever they release.....so why would they even?

 

U2 as a fashion are long since dead. In case you haven't noticed we're into legacy act territory now (proof is in the way the 360 tour set evolved...and was a great success; although I'm glad I caught that tour early when they were still excited about the new record). Sure they can still be topical or relevant, but only in the way the cool 'bad' grandparent can be topical or relevant....look at Bill Murray.

 

So the music has to be great or there's just no point. I hope the band wait until they have a set they are excited about. I think Invisible was testing the waters somewhat. Loved it, it served a purpose, would have liked to hear the rest of THAT album the concept of which I'm thinking has been passed over now.

 

So, I normally wouldn't have committed so many bad ideas to type, but I'm on a bender and stumbled across the OP having just come of 'Bad'  and 'Invisible' and 'Baby Wild Horses' on i-tunes or some sort of copy of that, and well...I don't care if they never release another anything. But i would certainly still go and line up for it if the band thought it was great.
