"We genuinely believed it was a record about being fans of rock-and-roll. Maybe we didn't understand how successful we were and that it looked like we were hanging out with these guys so, by association, that we were one of the greats."

-- Bono, on Rattle and Hum

Rumor: Steve Lillywhite Says U2 Album Won't Be Out Until 2014

@U2, August 30, 2013
By: Matt McGee


More rumors about U2's album plans, these from @U2 reader Gary Paul, who met up Thursday in Dublin with Steve Lillywhite (who's there to work on his RTE TV show, The Hit). Paul tweeted about the brief conversation yesterday, saying "DEFINITELY NOT this year !!! Roll On Next Year #U2 #NewAlbum" and then confirmed in a reply to our question that he was referencing comments from Lillywhite:

Lillywhite told Ireland's Today FM today that he was recently visiting with Bono, so that could be the source of his knowledge of U2's plans. But again, this is all unconfirmed and should be considered rumor.

After last week's rumors from Universal Music Italy, we reached out to our contacts to ask if the album would be out in 2013 or 2014. A contact at Universal Music North America had "no info to share," and a spokesperson for U2's PR team was unable to get an answer for us from Principle Management.
