I'm sure U2.com will post up Blackout for the fans...sometime in 2019.

The letter received by some fans (all, presumably, U2.com subscribers) may not be as mysterious as we think; it mentions the song and it mentions U2.com. Maybe that's all we need to know. "You're The Best Thing About Me" is the friendly, light song for the worldwide masses - "Blackout" is the song for the fans?

We'll know soon, I suppose. It's very exciting.
Yeah, that's the feeling I'm getting. U2 shooting multiple music videos back to back, plus reports of being "undecided" on a lead single make it seem like we could get more than one tune.

Now, we've got u2enespana saying 'Blackout' promotion will start this week, whilst others are reporting 'The Best Thing' will be released on the 8th.

Your theory sounds pretty likely. I think they could have an 'announcement' single, and a proper 'lead' single soon afterwards.

It makes more sense than pushing a song that tries to be all things to all people (like, imo, The Miracle) and fails. Just release two (Or more) songs that specialise in what you want.

I am thinking Blackout this week as a 'sneak peak' track from the upcoming u2 project, and then Sept 8 is the release of TBT as the 'first single'

Even before that, see the JT remaster. Bono's been talking about or playing with the 'Songs of' idea for quite awhile. I think it makes for the perfect bookend to their career, and I hope we see Ascent.

Now I'm not saying we're going to see a retirement after this, but I wouldn't be surprised to see a stepping back from the band.

Stay tune....


You see, they always come back around this time.

But how is it they always seem to forget that people have a memory or a search function?

Me too. A sneak peak for all, maybe full track for u2.com subscribers, and then YTBTAM as a single.

New acronym, yay
