"U2 will announce [blank] on [blank]."

By Hayden Wright

Yesterday, Taylor Swift and other artists seemed to seize on eclipse-mania to drop cryptic hints about upcoming musical projects. Like clockwork, members of the U2 fan club received an envelope in the mail containing a mysterious, mostly redacted letter prominently featuring the word “Blackout.”

“Blackout … It’s clear who you are will appear … U2.com,” reads a selection of un-redacted words, cut out from the figures of a man and a woman. At the bottom of the letter, fragments of this sentence are visible:

“U2 will announce [blank] on [blank].”

It’s not clear what U2 have in store for fans (or when) but this could be the beginning of a very interesting album rollout. See the letters to fans here:
