Songs of Ascent out early next year

Out early 2011
Provisionally named 'Songs of Ascent'
Includes various types of songs (as opposed to divided into 4 albums), including EBW, Mercy, and Boy Falls From the Sky

In other news,
Someone on interference says this is the rumoured track list for the ep i mentioned in the other thread, which is apparently due 22 nov 2010. From WAIE (not sure what that is):

1) Beautiful Day (live from Torino)
2) Pride (live from Moscow)
3) One (like from Moscow)
4) North Star (the same thing Bono and Edge played live, except recorded in a studio)

If true, i'm severely annoyed that only one new song is on it, and my least favourite at that. However, if it means its a precursor to an actual full album coming out soon, then i'll be happy.
As always, take this with a huge pinch of salt. I'll believe SoA is coming out when its officially announced on u2.com or something.

Looks like Mercy, EBW and Boy Falls From The Sky all confirmed for Songs of Ascent and SoA looking much more likely as a title!

I'm frankly more excited about all that than his suggested date! :P Although tying it to the US leg makes it a bit more firm, we've been led on by him before!

If that tracklist is accurate, I'm a bit disappointed but it'll be worth it for an early album!

New EP to tease us and then a new album in May or so seems a very plausible, very smart strategy!

I think McGuiness citing EBW, Mercy and BFFTS as members of SoA means the amazon ep is very unlikely to have any of these tracks... except, perhaps, a lead single. But would November be too early for any SoA material? GoYB came out only a month before NLOTH, so we're unlikely to hear a new song until 2011... january at the earliest, but probably more like march or april  :-[
Oh well, if that other report is accurate, at least we get a new version of North star! That's something!

Awesome  :D although to be honest the actual predicted tracklist still sucks... live tracks that were performed and released with the rose bowl dvd... at the very least, couldn't they give us some live tracks from this leg in particular? We've already heard One and Pride a million times, and incredibly recently with the rose bowl... why not have HMTMKMKM, bad, and Spanish eyes on the ep???
