Universal Music Confirms U2 Album 'This Year'

@U2, August 08, 2014

U2 will release its new album "this year." That confirmation came to @U2 today during an email conversation with a Universal Music rep.

We contacted Universal Music with questions about the recent reports out of France that the album is due to be released on October 27th. As you can see in the email exchange below, the Universal spokesperson (whose name and email address are being protected for privacy) said that date is "completely untrue." But when we asked if the album would be out this year or next year, the spokesperson confirmed it'll be this year. (Start at the bottom of the image to read the conversation.)

If you've been following along, you know this isn't the first time Universal has said U2's album will be out this year. A couple months go, they included U2 on a news release with planned 2014 albums. Universal's offices in Colombia and Venezuela recently tweeted about a September release date, but our label contacts said that date wasn't true.

October 27th may end up being the actual release date; today's denial may be more a reflection that the date isn't set in stone just yet.

In any case, it's good to have direct confirmation from the record label that the album is coming this year.
