Interesting. I'm guessing you disagree with the confirmed November release dates of the album, then?

I hope you're right Dave, cause this is a little sooner than I'm expecting things to happen.

Yeah, the single will be announced in August and will leak in late August/early September. I'm kinda on the fence about the stolen CD, so the release date might hold for November.

I like all these singles for NA, so I won't have to pay import prices at Tower for the fuckers.

Although I don't think Interscope is suddenly going to start releasing real singles here.

I've heard rumors that PM is in negotiations with Apple to release some live material to iTunes. I'm sooo hoping they also put the new album up on iTunes before it's officially released. I've gotten a couple of albums early that way.

If the Album is released on October 26, we will know by November 3 whether it hit #1 or not. You Definitely won't have to wait until December 13. If the album were to be released on November 23, we would know by December 1 Whether it hit #1 in its first week.

The single will be available before any type of press conference.
If Sept 1st some press conferenc takes place. Then the single (leaked to radio or the internet) will be at our disposal within the next 4 weeks.

The big POPmart press conference was at K-Mart in Feb 97. Everyone had heard Discotheque by then, as a matter of fact the video was already on MTV. Beautiful Day was on Intereference about 6 weeks before the single was officially released. I think it was intentionally leaked by the band.

It's twice the publicity at half the price.
1-leak it radio and the net
2-then do the offical shit

People who don't frequent filesharing portals or boards like this might not even hear it until it's offically released. Granted that it's a much smaller % of people than it used to be.

Some type of leak will occur before Sept 1st. take that to the bank.

I can take it to the bank but I don't think that they'll give me much for it.

Yeah it'll be really terrible if they released it early that way. I'm sure no one would be tempted to buy the tracks.
