U2 has never been a band to release an album once a year, or very quickly at all.  They take their time, and do it at their own pace for sure!  It looks like U2 is releasing a brand new album in May of this year. 

According to the usually-reliable fan website AtU2.com, the band's manager, Paul McGuiness, confirmed during a music industry conference in Cannes, France that the album, which is "largely completed," will be released in time for U2's North American tour which kicks off in Denver, Colorado on May 21st.

A Texas show you ask?  Hmm.  We may have to drive to Nashville or Chicago.  But we'll keep you updated!
