Devastating news about the new cd

I just heard the DJ on my very-U2 oriented radio station say that what U2 is working on now is bonus tracks for best of, and there will be no new album for a very long time. Please someone say it ain't so!!!

Don't listen to what they are saying. It's true they are working on bonus tracks but there have been so many conflicting reports about when the new album comes out. It will be here before you know it.

WHY is everybody avoiding this thread? It's true, I know nobody wants to hear it because it's not fun, but at least comment!

I wish that were true, but I keep finding evidence of no album and it worries me. Read this:

I do think we'll see a new GHits album first, but this does NOT mean no new album for a "very long time" either. My guess is a new album in 2003 holiday (I'd be surprised, but not stunned if it came out in 2004).

I heard something about the Best of 1990-2000 having one disco of greatest hits and a second disc of completely new material. Remember when Michael Jackson did this with his History album? That kinda of what it sounds like.
For those of you that thought the second disc would be compiled of B-Sides, the report I read said that since U2 wasn't as productive during the 90's, there weren't enough B-Sides to quanitify a "Best of...B-Sides".

This news upsets me very much. A greatest hits disc would be the "safe" thing to do. IMO, the "safe" thing is always the wrong thing.

1. Adam has said that they are recording a new album.

2. VH1 as a news source? Ummm, I would hardly get my panties in a bundle over something they've reported. Not hard news to be sure.

People, people, people...What good is worrying going to do us? I wouldn't assume a thing until we hear it straight from the horse's mouth.

U2 have plenty of B-sides to put on an extra disc for 90-2000. My hope is that they don't include ATYCLB singles on it. that would be a shame. I want that included in a 2000-2010 Best of.

Like having "safe sex" or weating a "safety seatbelt." Those things are safe and clearly they are the wrong things to do.

*snicker*


While I also feel thatU2 should release a new album now, while they are still "hot" - they simply might not have the new material ready. So rather than wait 2 more years before they finally come out with a new disk, I think it's a good idea to release the second "Greatest Hits" album. This keeps U2 on everyones' minds and allows for some snippets of new U2 material, without bombarding the world with another new album and tour. Then, just as the Greatest Hits album starts to fade, U2 can come out with their next new studio album.

Plus, don't forget, U2 are under contract for those Greatest Hits albums - and there may be some pressure for them to release that album now (after all, the last one was released almost 4 years ago).

Therefore, I don't really think of this move as "safe" at all, but rather ingenious marketing that also gives U2 more time to record the new album.

I believe the rumor that there will not be a disc of '90s B-sides.
However, to say there's not enough B-side output from that era is simply not true:

1. Night and Day (original Red Hot + Blue mix)
2. Alex Descends
3. Lady With the Spinning Head
4. Where Did It All Go Wrong
5. Salome
6. Satellite of Love
7. Paint It Black
8. Fortunate Son
9. Slow Dancing
10. Hold Me Thrill Me
11. Holy Joe
12. Happiness Is a Warm Gun
13. North and South of the River
14. Two Shots of Happy
15. I'm Not Your Baby

And if that's not enough, you could stretch the definition and add the following:

Can't Help Falling in Love
I've Got You Under My Skin
Halleliuah
In the Name of the Father
Mission: Impossible

Plus, of course, the Soul Assassins remix of "Numb" as a hidden track. (naturally.)

Ahem. Think again, Mixy.

Last time I checked, "Hold Me Thrill Me" and "Not Your Baby" were from *soundtracks*, not B-sides. Dumbass.

no worries. hmtmkmkm could be included on disc one. even if you exclude those two (and i think the latter was a b-side for something once?) there'd still be plenty of room for other stuff.

actually, I thought Hold Me Thrill Me and Not My Baby were also included as B-sides on something. And at this point, there released fewer B-sides in the 90's than the 80's so why not add them to fill up the second CD?

Actually the studio version of Hold Me was never a b side. I believe a live version from Mexico City was on a limited edition import single but I cant remember which.

I'm Not Your Baby was not a B side. The "Skysplitter Dub Mix" which was a instrumental remix of the song was a B side on one of the Last Night On Earth singles. But the studio vocal version was never a b side either.
