Okay, now what?

Let's start with what we know:

Supposedly, the album is done and set for a Nov. 22 release, with a single to come in September.

Then a CD of Edge's gets stolen at a photo shoot. We don't know if it's the whole album, some tunes, or just rough demos. Speculation is that it's a stunt, except the French police are involved. Edge issues a statement saying it "doesn't seem credible" (btw, is it just me or do you thing he meant to say "possible").

Now there's rumors the album will be nixed. I know this cannot be true.

The U2 camp has been silent since.

What are we waiting for? If the single is due to radio in September, wouldn't we know it's name/album name by now?

I'd like personal responses from either Bono, Edge, Larry, or Adam if possible.

We also know that one of the leaked songs is being played on a radio station in San Diego.

What's weird is we haven't heard anything from them since Edge and Paul's statement so this is kind of strange. I thought we would be barraged with statements about it from Bono etc.

It's like they are thinking really hard what their next move should be like in a chess game LOL. I don' t want them to think, just get the disc mastered and released as soon as possible I mean why do they have to wait till Nov 22 ? Why not October for the album and begining of September for single ?

The timing of the release is more important than we might casually realize. There is competition from other artists, much like opening weekend for the boxoffice. There are also holiday/shopping, marketing, and other logistical resources and considerations. It's so routine these days releases like this sometimes we forget the amount of coordination and work that goes into a release like a u2 album

I am sure they are hard at work, and also having to factor in contingency plans, etc... if the album really was stolen. That said, I also find it kind of strange we haven't really heard more official statements from the band or principal mgmt.

I have pretty serious doubts about this. not that Kevin is lying, but that the corporate radio station would do something like that, IF the cd was indeed stolen. These aren't the days of independent djs anymore. It's just too damn programmed to allow a pirated copy of a top band's unreleased song to be played without permission.

The one unequivocable fact about all of this is the massive SILENCE eminating from the U2 camp. The longer this goes on, the more mystifying it is. Why don't they say something?

November It feels like Neverember The thought that some FRENCH dude has the CD. Make me need to listen to "French People Suck" by The Meatmen.

Personally, I think some little IRISH dude has it. Makes me want to hop a plane, go over there and spank him.



Did I say that out loud?

There are two new mp3s on eMule.

The one titled: u2.new.album.lost.cd.2004.mp3
is 100% fake...


But there is also another one titled: U2-new album 2004-maqueta 3.mp3
But there is to few sources on that file and the download haven't started yet.

Anyone with eMule, please check if this is real or fake...

it wouldn't surprise me if the record company ends up stating they feel 'forced' to move up the release date to end october/early november which would be about the same time of the year that ATYCLB was released

That U2-new album 2004-maqueta 3.mp3 has been there for a few days. I had it in my transfer list for a couple of days and didn't get a single byte of it lol. I've added it back in now as there do seem to be a couple more sources, tho i'm not gonna bet on it being real. Obv, if it turns out to be the real deal, I will let you know

I think that if the theft/lost CD thing was real, they will push the date release forward. (remember, there was a newsbit that they made "a video for the album" in France - I bet it's the single video)

Also, why would they release the single in September, if the album really isn't out by November? I'm not sure U2 ever uses such long gaps between first single and album.

Personally I think we would have seen them on the hubs within 24 hours, or maybe torrented. I still don't think it was a prank but I don't think they're going to be released to the net. JMO.

Total silence from Bono is puzzling eh.
seriously though, we haven't heard a peep about it since the day of the incident, right? very odd indeed.

Indeed. The one main ODDITY about all of this for me is the fact that NONE of us have heard a single leak, peep or anything from the stolen goods. Nada. Nothing. Which, I guess, is good for U2, but it certainly makes the silence even more deafening as the days go by.
