U2 Album Status? Updates from Mandela Screening

@U2, November 26, 2013
By: Matt McGee

 

U2's new song, "Ordinary Love," and the movie it's in -- Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom -- weren't the only topics of discussion at last night's special screening in New York City. Some of the reporters there also asked about U2's next album, and here's a look at what's being reported:

1.) The Edge sounded non-committal on dates when speaking with the Wall Street Journal.

It's going great, and we're very happy about progress. But we haven't chosen a release date yet and we won't do it until the album's done or as close to done, so we know it's in the bag, so to speak.

2.) Paul McGuinness, who was there with new manager Guy Oseary (awkward!), was a bit more certain when speaking to Roger Friedman.

No, Guy told me, there will be no Madonna-U2 duet on the new album.

Paul did tell me that the album will come in March, maybe right after the group wins an Oscar for their "Mandela" song.
