McGuinness Confirms May U2 Album Release, Title TBD

U2 manager Paul McGuinness has reiterated that U2 is planning to have a new album out in May, in time for the North American leg of the U2 360 tour. Speaking during the Midem music conference in Cannes, McGuinness says the new album is "largely completed" and the band is working in its southern France studio to put the "finishing touch" on the record.

McGuinness says this album will be the one that Brian Burton, AKA Danger Mouse, is producing. But he says it's "unlikely" that the album will be called "Songs Of Ascent" -- the title that Bono originally used to refer to what was expected to be an album of songs leftover from the No Line On The Horizon sessions.

Again, we get this news from our friends at, who point to the report on German site MediaBiz. Here's the original in German, and here's a Google translation in English.

As we reported yesterday, a new U2 album is currently listed on Amazon Germany with a May 27 release date.
