It's August already, where's the news???

I know its only the 2nd but we really need some news.

What would you prefer to get next if we could only choose one of the following:

-> confirmed release dates
-> More song descriptions
-> first single title
-> Album title
-> Whats on the dvd

I'd choose -> More song descriptions, thats most important to me, though the release dats and single title would be exciting, lol!

What would make me happy this week is a title and a list of all the song names. Then at the end of August if we get 30 second snippets of all the songs. By the end of September (but hopefully by Sept 15th) a single on the radio. Then all that would be enough until the album comes out.

This is what I'd like from those choices.

I don't want any more fans giving me opinions of songs they may or may not have heard. I'm tired of having to try to figure out all those such-and-such song meets this other song descriptions. And one fan's "hard rock" is another fan's fucking Hoobastank as hard rock. Quit with the delirious girls and boys riding in cars with Bono and give me the real deal.

I'll take a schedule of the tour, actually. But from your choices, I'll choose confirmed release dates.

I would love to have a confirmed release date, like nurse chrissi, from an actual member of the band, or Paul McGuiness.

Per Bono, the confirmed release is in November, according to last week's interview with CNN. Universal has told Interference that the album is due in late November.

So in that light, I'd like more of an official confirmation on the album title and launch events on MTV/VH1 and such.

If I recall correct Bono, Paul McGuiness and Universal all said November (22). So he may be onto something.

Song descriptions, and maybe something more detailed than "the song rocked" or "it was a sweet melody". I'd like to specifically know if the new album can be compared to any sounds U2 had in the past so we can at least guess what to expect.

I guarantee that we will get news about the album before November 22nd. So don't worry.

It's also possible that the stolen CD issue brought their whole publicity machine to a temporary halt.

However, I'm guessing that as more time passes without the stolen CD appearing online, U2 will become more relaxed and everything will get back on track for a traditional publicity buildup.
