McGuinness says new album out “Before North American Tour Dates”
Original story (u2wanderer.org) by Brad Hood (2011-02-01)
On the heels of yesterday’s report that Amazon.de has listed a May release date for the next U2 album comes a quote in the German press from Paul McGuinness, apparently confirming that release schedule. McGuinees told reporters at the recent MIDEM conference in Cannes (January 22-26) that the new album would be released prior to the upcoming North American tour dates. Also of note, it seems that the record is indeed being produced by Danger Mouse, is already largely completed, and likely won’t be titled Songs of Ascent after all.
