new album scrapped? (msn uk)

U2 May Scrap Their Stolen Album!

U2 fear they may have to scrap their upcoming new album after a CD featuring a 'rough final cut' was stolen from their French studio.


An early copy of the quartet's follow-up to All That You Can't Leave Behind - which has the working title of Vertigo - was stolen from a studio in Nice while U2 were at a photo session. The band now believe copies will be leaked across the internet, making its original autumn release impossible.


"A large slice of two years' work lifted via a piece of round plastic. It doesn't seem credible but that's what's just happened to us...and it was my CD," admitted the Edge to NME; while Lucian Grainge, the head of Universal Music, added: "This matter is of great concern to us... The French police are being extremely helpful in this regard."

Just saw this, I hope the report isn't credible!

It's been several days since the album was stolen, and so far there isn't a trace of it anywhere on the internet. I can't possibly see how this will effect the album's release. Pirating music is just something that is a fact of life, especially when you are as popular as U2 and your album is so highly anticipated by everyone. I'll be very disapointed if the management/record company let this little scare throw off the entire album's schedule.

I am a little curious...why would scrapping the album spell the end of the band? I obviously hope they don't do it and I find it unlikely that they would do it, but you're telling me a six- or twelve-month delay means that U2 will just wither up and die? Bono remains as visible as ever, and U2 is, for better or worse, one of the most important and popular bands in the world. The relationships between the band members are stable, the fan base is absolutely churning for new work...what, exactly, is the problem?

This is rediculous.

Let's forgo millions upon millions of dollers because some random person stole a rough cut of some of our songs!

To me, scrapping the album means writing and recording a new batch of tunes. That would take U2 2-3 years. Which puts the album out 2006 or 2007. End of relevancy taking 6/7 years to release a new record. Done and done.

I can't believe that a DISCUSSION even exists over this nonsense. I mean, WTF?! This is an older article. I've seen it two days ago and I laughed so hard... It is just a case of greedy journalism.

That is the stupidest article I've ever read, and yes, I'm even including the tripe in the local newspaper.

It's too bad October was scrapped after the lyrics were stolen.

Yeah...and that album in 1997...after those two songs were leaked. What was it called? Rock? Dance? Techno? Soul? RNB? Country? It had some kind of a name similar to a some kind of music direction...but I don't remember.

Actually it was punk rock from Venus, not made on....but I get your point.

The band is not scrapping the album. Did they scrap Acthung Baby when those songs were leaked? Sure those were strictly demos, but come on why would they waste all the work they made on this album due to "ONE" lost CD. I'm sure it's not the MASTER CD (whatever that is), it was probably just a group of songs burnt in a particular order that the Edge was going back to his house to listen to and try to decide if he likes the track order.

Geez.......
