So I bet the Songs of Ascent that we're talking about now has a lot different track listing then what Bono was talking about a year and half ago.  Even though it probably was never finalized.

I wouldn't count on it.  Apparently it's only on vinyl and only going to be sold in independent record stores in the US.  Although it would certainly help sales if it was released digitally.

But I would be shocked if the LP was only released on vinyl in independent record stores.! Then U2 would really be showing that they're looking out for the little guy.  With only a live EP being released to independent record stores it's just a token gesture, nothing more.

I'd pretty much guarantee within a week or less you'll see the EP up online for pirating.

Well, if it's only released on vinyl (for anti-pirating reasons), then I guess I am left with no choice other than to actually steal the LP from an indie record shop. See what you're making me do, Mr. McGuiness? I hope you're happy.

Actually I thistnk makes me believe the Songs of Ascent story even more.  I think they quoted him correctly but he had buyer's remorse.

my local radio station sends me facebook updates... I just got one that quoted a spin.com article that a new U2 album was being "finished up" for release before the next US leg of the tour. hmm, we'll see.

That would be awesome if the EP was only released on vinyl in indie stores. I could kinda see it happening.

That reminds me, I need to get a new record needle.

Vinyl>MP3

ive thought this through.

the ep serves the purpose to introduce the us peeps to the few new songs the band have played prior to the next leg of the tour in the states. hence why its only being sold in the states.

and for that reasoning, i would suggest there will be no songs of ascent early next year.

why would the band confuse the audience by releasing and album and a ep...months apart from eachother?

any answers on this?
