Well we don't know, maybe they will announce the album on the 6th but maybe not give track listing etc. We will find out in just a few short days.

It's all obvious now.... Apple caught wind that SOE was actually really definitely imminent and wants to give it out again at their iPhone event on 09/12.

They thought the social teases would ruin the surprise

Look, KFC might be correct. Think about it...track listing, mixing the singles, haircuts and dye jobs. These things take time, and the last thing they want to do is muck up this release like they did with SOI. I mean, dropping a free album on our phones, and then Bono forgot the training wheels on his bike, and then, oh the horror, the dye job for SOI Tour...

I'm sure removing the line about Album News is an omen...like Damien...

Album delayed because Bono is trying to find something that rhymes with Orange.

Why would we give any credibility to some rando on Twitter who rambled about some new mix and then deleted his post? I don't get it.

Really want them to just announce the album next week. Why delay that?

It wasn't a rando. It was posted by a producer with Steve Lillywhite and the guy shared video (no audio) of them supposedly mixing it. AtU2 has it up on their Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/p/BYfTKDzHGO3/

Doesn't seem to be a joke, especially considering it was deleted so swiftly.

Anyway new thread is going here: http://www.u2interference.com/forums...-a-221499.html

Every Breaking Wave is a decent song that was destroyed live.
It's possible that point had been made before on here but I hadn't seen it. You're exactly right... their believe that this album works when stripped back acoustically muted a lot of their promo appearances. I think if

- the promo had been centered around full band EBW, California, RBW, and Reach

- they had handled the iTunes thing differently (although I certainly wouldn't have predicted the backlash there either)

- Bono hadn't been injured, allowing a full promo blitz through Fall/Winter of '14

...it could have been a much more successful cycle. They have the chance to do it right this time, though.

I step away for a few hours and now this thread is 20 pages longer... so what is the current topic? When the album will get released? Or are we onto talking about KFC chicken?

EBW was brought down by the soso slide guitar bit played during the chorus.
