New U2 Album Will Be Called “10 Reasons to Exist.” Or Not.

The older U2 gets, the longer their album titles become.  In the beginning, there was Boy, October and War. Then, after a reset with Pop, verbosity took hold with the worst offenders being All That Can’t Leave Behind and How to Dismantle and Atomic Bomb.

According to the Irish Independent, the next U2 album (one of three allegedly in the works) will be called 10 Reasons to Exist.

The 52-year-old said the group have been working steadily throughout 2012 on the new record, which will be their 13th studio album. But a release date could be some time off.

“Within the band, we’ve been calling it ’10 Reasons To Exist’ – but I will tell you we might have at least six of them,” joked Bono.
