Bono has revealed the working title of the next U2 album, which will be the band's 13th studio effort. Are you ready? Drumroll please … It may be called '10 Reasons to Exist.'

"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," he said, according to The Independent.

Perhaps that means that there will be 10 songs, and they have completed six? That's just speculation. Or maybe the singer was joking about there only being six legit reasons to exist? So many philosophical musings might result from Bono sharing this news.

Bono, who was sidelined with the flu over the Christmas holiday, revealed that U2 has been working on a new album for much of 2012. He said nothing, however, about a possible release date.

Despite his illness, the singer found time to busk in the streets of Dublin for charity. He also admitted that he "loved being home" and said it was "the best Christmas ever."

This little nugget of information about the next U2 album is certainly a belated holiday gift for the band's fans. It's something to look forward to, regardless of what you think of that working title.
