The only hope we have is if some obscure radio station from somewhere leaks it before everybody else, if not we are just a weekend away from listening to new U2 material!!!!

here's what alan wrote this morning. nothing big:

U2: We’re Getting Close
Friday, January 16, 2009

In case you haven't seen it yet, here's the official word from U2 themselves at U2.com | U2.com.

Although the official release of “Get On Your Boots” is still a few days off—it’s supposed to be a worldwide simultaneous digital delivery at 8am ET on Monday—I get the feeling that something’s gonna blow before the

Here’s why:

Making a record is a torturous process for U2. When it’s finally done, they can’t wait to show everyone what they’ve done.

Why do I get the sense that Bono’s gonna walk the single into the Dublin studios of RTE (the Irish equivalent of the CBC and the BBC) in the next 48 hours and ask that the announcer play it?

If that happens, U2 management and their worldwide network of record reps will have to scramble to release the single early.

Another scenario has someone breaking the embargo.

Dozens of CD-Rs of “Get On Your Boots” were burned and given to record company representitives for demonstration purposes. Even those these discs are encrypted and watermarked, someone is going to find the temptation to leak it too great. It’s only human nature.

Meanwhile, those manning the usual listening posts are beginning to pick up weird chatter.

goyb monday 7:00 am

sorry guys, i didn't know where to post this, i just want to let you know that a hungarian radio station will premiere Get On Your Boots on monday, at 8:00 a.m. hungarian time, which means 7:00 a.m. dublin time, an hour before the 2fm premiere. i read it on the hungarian u2 fansite from someone who heard the announcement on that radio today. i know it's only 1 hour, but i guess there are some fans on this forum who would die just to hear the song before the irish radio plays it. you can listen online here: slager.hu click on the black headphone on the right side next to the big red line. i hope the information is correct, they did the same thing with Vertigo in 2004 on the day of its world radio premiere.

Heads-up: Irish radio apparently has the world premiere of the new U2 single at 8:10am Dublin time. That's 3:10am ET in North America.

Yeah, he didn't specify and I suspect it's referring to the Fanning premiere as well. Guy has me intrigued with all of his talk about the odds of an early leak/early premiere.

He's been around long enough to know how the game works.

I dont think he has solid inside info, just making educated guess from the perspective of someone who knows and respects the band quite well.

His comments have been intriguing the whole way through.

Can't see that happening with all of them in DC for the next couple of days.
