Will U2′s “Songs of Ascent” Blast Off in June?

Members of U2 are talking again.

That usually means very little. Their release-date predictions rarely come true.

But still, this report is more encouraging than the last report I heard, in which it sounded uncertain whether this project was moving forward at all.

What’s most exciting to me about this report is that means I might be hearing some new songs live during their Seattle concert. I’ve never seen U2 perform songs live before they show up on an album.

About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has relaunched a bigger, better version of this blog at LookingCloser.org. The new Looking Closer doesn't have any of the trashy click-bait advertisements that you're probably seeing all over this Patheos page. So give yourself a break.

    Man, they always say this and then take five years, but I am hoping No Line’s under performing sales will give them an extra hunger to get this album out quick. By the way they were talking early last year, they wrote enough material for ten albums.
