Maybe in line with the second single?


Bono has already announced it and surely it will be asked on Fallon tomorrow?, but the sensible thing is the second single, even if best thing only gains them a little bit of attention it needs momentum behind it otherwise all will be forgotten come December!

Well, the single artwork does say

'A Song of Experience'

I think they're mad to wait three months, but maybe the next single is the one that really gets people talking, and boosts the album.

It does seem like they have a plan this time around, though they had a plan with SOI but the bicycle accident threw it all off

Well...

They took 3 years instead of 5 to make a new album. We've heard three tracks and I think one of them is great and another one is good and the third is a bit of a mess but probably salvageable as a live song.

I just think they botched their chance at a radio hit, sadly.

(I know Best Thing is doing well on the iTunes charts... but I think their lead single was always going to make a bit of an initial splash).

This song is going to do well.

This will do well because it's poppy and catchy. The chorus has a hook that they haven't had since Vertigo or Beautiful Day. Non-U2 fans like this song.

Production isn't great. And no not all songs would have initial splash..

Well not all songs, but all lead U2 singles, yes. I mean Boots went Top 40 in the US in its first week simply because it was the new U2 song and then dropped out of the Hot 100 for good a few weeks later because it was trash.

Yo, how fucking ballsy of U2 to release a lead single with the lyrics "the best things are easy to destroy"

My wife, who has somewhat of a love-hate relationship with U2, says it's a good song. Her exact words were "ridiculously catchy".

I gotta admit, I've come around to it. I was at work all day and could only listen to it on my phone in a distractible environment. Hearing it at home on proper speakers, at a loud volume really helps me. I like it. Don't love it, but it's way better than The Miracle or Boots. Probably just as catchy and radio friendly as Vertigo. The problem is that a group of mid 50s men are not going to appeal to enough young people to really make a difference in the pop charts, no matter how good or catchy/accessible a song is.

I like this song, but not as much as Blackout. I think Blackout is good enough to have been pushed as the 1st single, but whatever. I hope they play TBT in Indy this Sunday!

I love the song but it's probably a little too slow to be the 1st single. I wouldn't be surprised if it's released as a single down the track though.

BBC Radio 2 - Simon Mayo Drivetime, The Edge, Anthony Horowitz, Campsite Confession, Edge talks brand new U2!

Interesting interview with Edge here. Talking about a mix of songs that were taken back and re-recorded as a band in the room as well as the ones that take advantage of all sorts of modern/technology-based sounds.

I wouldn't be surprised if U2 released a third song before SOE debuts.

Considering this is only the first single, I'd wager we will get 1 or 2 official releases before the album is out.

Makes sense, we have a date, just release all the detail after TJT tour ends so they're 100% focused on new album promotion. They've been slowly teasing us since May and it's definitely been a balancing/juggling act since then. I think they've done it quite well.
