I'm intrigued by The Showman, and its supposed 50s rock influence. Not a sound/era U2 have explored before, really.

It's also not really an era that seems a great fit with U2's strengths..

The title just makes me think of The Snowman

Didn't we just get song descriptions that included MMB?

The Showman probably sounds just as much like '50s rock as TBT sounds like "punk Supremes."

I dont think so - though I may have missed something? the only mention of it was this and that article turned out to be BS

U2songs reporting that we should get the album announcement around October 20.
Also, JT tour film info!

u2songs | The Crystal Ball: What's Up Next |

They wouldnt post that if they werent sure, or at least confident, that the rumors will prove true


EDIT: some informed speculation about single #2 coinciding with album announcement too!

"We’re also told the announcement in October may include an announcement of tour dates for the Experience and Innocence tour, expected to start in late March 2018"

Hmm. Well if one still wants to be optimistic re: a 12-track album, we could argue that it would be surprising if EVERY song had been mentioned already; I feel with usual lead-up reporting there's always a sleeper track or two that doesn't get revealed until later in the game.

Well, I still think it's weird to have so much of the tour's content be about the USA and not film the official video here. At least the crowd energy in South America will be good. Having said that, this thing is already going to be a major missed opportunity with the almost-certain absence of A Sort Of Homecoming.

Whenever I hear the song title Get Out of Your Own Way, I start singing Fleetwood Mac.

Well I mean it could still be a minor radio hit, getting moderate to high airplay on various radio formats (AAA, Alternative, Hot AC).


But yeah, it's not going to be a breakout Top 40 smash at this point. Signs are pointing to a second single in about a month, so they're probably hoping that TBT does at least something on radio between now and then. Of course, that's a very small fraction of what you need for a hit (of which the major components are streaming like Spotify and Youtube)
