Wow! Wonder what it's based on. Could be that they just assume an album is coming out on the back of the singles, but it seems weird to include them on the list without any other information. Fingers crossed!
Some of these albums have been announced or teased, either in interviews or with official rollouts. Some are based on… things we’ve heard. Some are educated guesses and/or pure speculation.
I'm pretty sure a Hold Steady release falls into the last category.

Ehhh, I like the optimism but Craig has repeatedly said how much he likes releasing these two songs at a time. Plus there's a new solo album from Craig coming in early 2019. They played a new song live recently though so hopefully we'll get at least some new music from them next year
They were pretty definite at the Brooklyn sound check that they don't plan to release an album, citing the bullshit associated with getting it on a label and so on. Craig did suggest that you could just save up all the singles to listen to at one time, to which Tad added a cheery "And then you can do the sequencing yourself!"
They do have at least one new song (played the night before, and again at the sound check), so I would expect another set of singles at some point, right before some upcoming show.
I just want new music in whatever form it arrives in. A new record would be fun for the vinyl completist in me, but a 7'' box set (or 7'' series) of these singles with a charitable component would scratch that itch too.
