U2.com email today

Anybody else received this?

Dare we speculate?



Dear CHORK,

Something a bit special is coming up on our U2.com subscription site tomorrow.

As you know, we like to show you some love - so tomorrow we're bringing you something a little out of the ordinary.

Can't say anymore but sign in Thursday at 6.30pm (US EDT).
Check the time in your location.

best wishes,
The U2.com Team.

Thanks again. My eyes are too bad to make anything out in a small photo though. And since we don't know that this has anything to do with a new U2 album, I think your separate thread is fine!

Something to do with the 25th anniversary of rattle and hum i think. Is the picture in the email the recording equipment in the wareshouse from the rattle and hum movie?

If it isnt anything to do with new material thats just cruel from u2's part,they know everyones going crazy for new material, rumours are coming out all over the place and to tease us like this is "so cruel" :-)

My email was blank, too. I saw this on atu2.com; they seem to think that it might be related to a Nelson Mandela documentary:

U2.com Email Promises Members 'Something a Bit Special'

Quote:
UPDATE: As reported in our forum, this may have something to do with the upcoming film, Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom. If you click the link in the email, you'll end up on a page with a long URL that includes "MandelaTraler." There's no U2 involvement in the film that we're aware of, so the "something a bit special" might be news that U2 are involved in some way ... or it could just be an exclusive trailer for U2 fans ... or it could be nothing about the film whatsoever. Your guess is as good as ours.
Yay, just what U2 fans have been waiting for.

I even enlarged and lightened the photo and I still can't identify anything in the picture. Way to be secretive I guess!

The band did an alternate recording of Breathe that had the lyrics focused on Mandela...there was a :90 clip going around at one point of that? Maybe they're sharing the full recording? If so, not great, though not terrible...

Looks like the band recorded a new original song for the movie.

Bono, U2 Write and Record New Song for “Mandela” Movie | Showbiz411

I would bet we are going to see a trailer with a snippet of the song. I would be mildly shocked if they give us the whole thing.

U2's idea of something special really is different from our idea of something special.

Holy crap some of you people are jaded.

They more or less announced a brand new U2 song, the likely first glimpse of the new direction they are going in, AND gave you a listen to a clip of the song a few hours before anyone else.

What did you want, blowjobs for everyone? Shit.
