Well I did actually just read the same news in the newest Entertainment Weekly. So maybe it's remotely true. Super Bowl would be a good way to do it since you're about to fall into obscurity for the casual fan.

Most bands are in obscurity for the casual music fan nowadays. Back in the 80s, bands stuck in your head for a lot longer. You didn't (often) put on a CD or an album and stop it after one song. Nowadays, it's a pretty short attention span no matter how good a band is. The only way to make something stick longer is to make the splash bigger.

Last time with no Eno, we got "Pop"

???

I don't think it's necessarily bad, Pop was just way different from everything else

I'm one of those who think Pop wipes the floor with AB.

Me too. And Achtung Baby is a brilliant, brilliant album. So where does that leave Pop for me?

I had assumed that a new song would be in the commercial. Interesting that it's also supposed to be different from Ordinary Love.

Does anyone thing that the commercial will leak before the Super Bowl? Many ads show up online at least a few days before.

If they do indeed air something like this then it would actually make me want to watch the Super Bowl.

So I wonder if the first single will be released to digital music sites on Super Bowl Sunday to capitalize, or on the following Tuesday.

I hope that this ad isn't 4 minutes long. That will just pi*s people off and they won't want to buy the album. Not to mention the band will be spending $33 million on the ad if it's that long. 30 seconds to a minute is best.

I don't know about that Starman. Remember the "God Made A Farmer" commercial last year?? That was quite long and people loved it.

So a 'video' not a commercial.  Also if everyone is that excited by the song surely it has to be on the new album ?

It's rumored to be a $4 million ad buy, right? At going rates for SB airtime, it'll be about 2 minutes, like that Chrysler ad with Eminem a few years ago.
