Rumor: GOYB Single delayed

Several u2 sites are now confirming that GOYB has been delayed - pushed back in some instances to the 24th of February - just three days before the supposed release of NLOTH in some countries.

This seems a bit unusual.

My concern - could the album also be delayed? Personally I don't think so, but couldn't imagine why the single would be either.

NEW @U2 'BOOTS' SINGLE DELAYED IN SOME COUNTRIES

Several of our fellow fan sites around the world are reporting that the "Get On Your Boots" single has been delayed. It was supposed to be released between February 13-16 (depending on the country). But here's what we've been told about new release dates:

February 20: Germany
February 23: France
February 24: Spain

We'll update this as we know more.

Maybe because of the video delay?

That is weird, but in these days of downloads, maybe single releases just aren't that vital anymore, hasn't it been available for dowload for a while??
Don't worry though the album wont be delayed, there's no way in hell that it would be put back at this late stage.

It's odd that it seems to be only certain countries the single is delayed in. And btw, when the hell is the video clip being released?

I have told you people that I think the album will be delayed but some people have such a big U2 heart that they refuse to listen to reason. It makes no sense that a single is released just a couple of days before the cd. There are at least two weeks between the two so do the math.

This thread is called "Confirmed: GOYB Single delayed" but it's still speculation.

Only fan sites are reporting this news. No "confirmed" news from U2, Universal, Amazon etc etc. They all still have 16 February.

Can we please merge this thread with the other thread including the same "speculation".

I've said it before and will say it again, who or what on earth is making decisions for the biggest band in the world? I have no doubt that the tour/album will be amazing but the promo for this record, and all the mixed messages has been shambolic...

I think it has to do with the video. Maybe they want to put the video on one of the single versions and make a DVD single.

But generally I don't think a single is so important for U2. I wouldn't buy it unless there's some b-side on it that's not on the album. The album is all that matters.

I agree completely but a single is a way to promote the album in advance so why releasing it the same week the full album comes out. That doesn't make any sense.

^ That's right, but U2 is doing more and better promotion by performing the new song, or even more new songs from the album. So far, we have four confirmed U2 live performances: The Grammys, the Brit Awards, the Echo Awards and a French TV Special. That's the best promotion and I hope some more performances will follow.

Maybe it's just a screw up with the pressing of the CDs, something like that.
Nothing to worry about here, folks.
