i imagine something like Yellowcard, where they are essentially a punk band with a full-time violinist.

You can make some pretty kool sounds mixing strings in with harder-edged songs

1. The CD release of GOYB is only two weeks before the album. There will NOT be a 2nd single before the album is released. No way.
2. According to one source, Universal have confirmed the album will only get 2 singles
3. Based on track length, possiblities for (unedited) singles are minimal

Therefore (without hearing ANY songs other that GOYB) I reckon we'll see just one more single and it will be whichever song is deemed the "live anthem" on the record and it will be released to coincide with tickets/announcement of the concert tour (say around May-ish).

But what wouldn't surprise me is something similar to Wide Awake in America either for Christmas or mid-tour, including a live track (8 minute version of Moment of Surrender) backed with a couple of outtakes including Every Breaking Wave.

So the chances of another single out before the album are bleak, but maybe a week after the Jap release of the album another single can partner the US/UK release of the album (on radio)

I still like Earnie Shavers' idea of leaking the "best" song (Moment Of Surrender, I guess) onto the interwebz through U2.com or their myspace, and then letting Breathe kick some serious ass on radio.

Magnificent and Crazy Tonight can wrap things up over the following year.

Leak the 7:12 minute version or shorten it to maybe 5:30 LM? Its a good idea, a deliberate leak.

Then let Breathe kickass as the 2nd/3rd single.

Yeah, shorten it. Don't want to give away the album version just like that.

Or just a 90 second clip?

What are the chances of U2 releasing White As Snow as a single when the movie is coming out?


As for the other choices, I'd say Magnificent, it will be amazing and epic U2.

Breathe ... I don't know. Judging from the Beach Clips, the chorus is great, but the verses not so much, I just think they don't fit well together, but maybe they managed to rework that song for the album so it will be a great tune after all.

For second single, I want something that is different from GOYB, something epic and atmospheric.

Really ?

Then I guess Will.I.Am remixing Magnificent should be a clue for the next single...and if necessary they can leak whichever song will be best live (Breathe?).

Breathe is probably going to be the greatest song ever written, so hopefully that will be single 2.

Just because the song has a remix doesn't mean that it will be a single. New York and Dirty Day are only some examples of this.

maybe that means they really want to release another album in fall, therefore don't want to release another single close to that album...

I am more incllined to believe that U2 and management have only just planned 2 singles to date. This does not mean there will only be 2 singles. I think the machine will address single #3 when the time comes.
