U2’s longtime manager Paul McGuinness said this week that it is becoming 'increasingly likely' that the Irish supergroup will release a new album by the end of 2010.

The new CD will follow up the bestselling 'No Line on the Horizon.'

Of course this being U2, no other information about the album is available, such as the title, track titles or which format it will be released in in this era of iTunes and iPods.

But interest in the band is at an all time high and the forthcoming announcement is eagerly anticipated.

A release in time for the holidays would be the perfect seasonal rock and roll gift. What do you think?
