New U2 on the Radio in San Diego

Just listend to '51st State of The USA', or at least that was the chorus, on Star 100.7 in San Diego. Its sounds like a dance track -coming in at about 126 - 128 BPM. Didnt hear much of Edge on it. The closest comparison would be Discotheque.

They were hyping it at at 10 to 5 - Talking about the leak - Then he (the host) said they would be playing a track at 10 after. Which they did - I called in to find out where he got it from and was told 'a source'. I think they said it had 7 tracks. I asked if it was downloaded and was told 'maybe'.

Is this station a Clear Channel station? Becuase they'll most likely be promoting the tour, so if they have a "leaked" song, that would help build buzz, even if the song turns out to be bogus. Is 51st State of the USA anything close to a title we've heard kicked around before?

I haven't heard anything about a song being called that. The only thing that line reminds me of is a song by the The called "Heartland" (good song, by the way). But who knows, perhaps that is a title for a new U2 song.

Anywho, this is interesting news. ...

I just called the station back and was told 'It is all over the internet, I knew it was out so I just typed it up and there it was.' Am I ahead of the game or behind it? Not sure if Star is Clear Channel - heres the link

I read that there are some fake mp3s going around and one of them sounds like a dance track.. But if the song you heard on the radio had Bono singing then maybe it's real? or something. Who knows.

Heh, I remember getting a promo tape from that exact station well over ten years ago when my family lived in San Diego....I have a feeling that the track might not be from U2......I mean, dance? That's kind of strange that we wouldn't hear about a dance track earlier when people were at the studios....then again, the member here said it was U2, so it must've had Bono's voice....

It's a fake people.....

it's New Model Army - "51st State"

To their impassioned cult of fans, New Model Army was one of the best post-punk outfits Great Britain ever produced. Combining the gut-level force of punk with the anthemic political fervor of U2 and the Alarm, as well as the urban protest folk of Billy Bragg, NMA sounded like few other bands mining similar post-punk territory.
The single "51st State," a critique of Britain's relationship with the United States, was a hit in Europe, and a dance remix of "Poison Street" was successful in the U.K.; additionally, album opener "The Hunt" was later covered by Brazilian metal band Sepultura.

you can go to VH1's site and look under New Model Army's bio.

hey, sorry it's bad news. i wish it was real too.
