There are more rumblings that U2's new album will be out this fall.

A report in the Irish Times says the band has signed off on the set-up for the album and tour, with a single in September, the album in September or October, a tour announcement in December and dates beginning next April.

The paper also says that U2 will take a page from the campaigns used to launch albums from David Bowie and Beyonce and release it quickly with little advance publicity.
