New U2 Album May Be Out By June – But Expect a Single Before Then
Very little is known about U2’s upcoming album, tentatively titled 10 Reasons to Exist. At one point, bassist Adam Clayton revealed to Billboard that the release was scheduled for April, after the band finished recording it at the end of 2013. However, Roger Friedman of Showbiz411then reported the release would drop in March. Now Friedman, after speaking with Bono following the Golden Globes, says the album comes out in June.
According to the statements Bono made to Friedman, the band is still wrapping some things up: “We’re still working some things out.”
That doesn’t mean listeners won’t get to hear their new sound before the album supposedly drops in June. Although U2 just won a Golden Globe for “Ordinary Love,” from Mandela, the first track from the upcoming album comes out over the next few weeks and is expected to be called “Invisible.”
Regarding the song, Bono told Friedman: “It’s not what you expect. It’s not your typical love song.”
An official announcement about the album will supposedly come during the Super Bowl in February. The band, according to reports, has been looking for brand partners to help make the announcement.
As well, sources claim U2 is returning to Island Records to put out this release. While their career started and stayed with Island, they switched to Mercury roughly seven years ago.
