UPDATE: A representative from Interscope says the album title and release date have not been determined yet. … But it will apparently happen this year.
First U2 were supposed to release a new album this year, then they weren’t, then nobody really knew what to think but there was some nice new music playing on the beach. Now an Irish Examiner feature asserts that the band’s as-yet-untitled thirteenth LP will arrive in November now that Bono has overcome a bout of writer’s block. Meanwhile, a tweet in Spanish from the Colombian branch of Universal Music Group suggests U2 will release something called “Sirens” in September. My Spanish is a little rusty, but the tweet seems to be saying Sirens is an album title, not a song title. Whatever it is, let’s hope it continues the return to form that was “Invisible.”
