Bono Reveals Possible Title for 13th U2 Studio Album
News of a new U2 album, a follow-up to 2009’s No Line on the Horizon, surfaced during the course of 2012. Yet, neither title nor release date were revealed. Now as the year is coming to a close, Bono, in an interview over the holidays, indicated the working title of their 13th studio release.
Although divulging no further information, the frontman said: "Within the band, we've been calling it '10 Reasons To Exist' – but I will tell you we might have at least six of them."
The release might not drop any time soon, although, according to news from August 2012, Mercury Records has the band’s album scheduled for some time in 2013. At the time, as well, Bono’s confidant Gavin Friday spoke to the press about the album’s progress. Fans, Friday mentioned, will be surprised by the band’s sound. He additionally added: "I’ve heard a fair bit of it. Danger Mouse is producing it, so it’s quite different."
In the nearly four years since No Line on the Horizon dropped, U2 had put together a follow-up – and then shelved it for not seeming up to their level of quality. Nevertheless, the band has toured over the time period, and during their 2010 gigs, new material had made its way into the setlists, including tracks called “Return of the Stingray Guitar” and “Glastobury,” the latter to be played at the well-known music festival. There’s no word whether these tracks – or any from the shelved album – will make it onto the new release.
