Is the title a tip of the hat to Clay Aiken?

Cheers,

Excited about new music...but now I'm a little confused and wondering whether the Super Bowl thing is actually happening. @U2 did post a news article saying they had confirmation from a reliable source, so I guess I'll count on that...it just seems kind of weird to do something like a charity single right before releasing a new album.

no. there's still a Super bowl ad probably. But not promoting a new album, just RED

Interesting for a band that seems to have trouble polishing enough songs to make an album to their satisfaction are releasing two non-album tracks within a few months of each other.

As I posted at Interference: It's called diversion. U2 want to make the announcement for the new album during the Super Bowl, not now. By attaching this song to RED (for the moment), as opposed to the new album, they can save the announcement until the actual Super Bowl, even if this song is also the lead single of the new album. They are killing two birds with one stone, and also creating confusion (and buzz) in the process. It's brilliant, actually.

Just in from U2.com "There's been some online buzz this week about what the band have been up to in LA. Here's the scoop. It's all about a new song called 'Invisible', a track the band will be releasing as part of an initiative with (RED) to support the fight against AIDS. Everybody's really excited about the song and the band have been shooting the video in LA." - See more at: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

Superbowl ad, Yes.  Announcing a new album, No.

That's what I thought. It might be a good strategy. I doubt it'll happen though.
