Does this mean the new single will actually be Blackout? And not Best Thing About Me? I certainly hope so. Blackout has more of an edge to it. And hopefully more The Edge being agressive in it. Could this be more The Fly and less "lets try and produce a radio hit?"

I much prefer the title which seems to suggest a punchy rockier track.
Lets hope it's more Vertigo than Get On Your Boots.

The cryptic physical letters sent to fans are an interesting promo idea, considering the "instagram" era we live in.

Kudos to the person who thought of that.

It's been removed and will be put back when it's cleaned up.

I dunno what's happening. Maybe blackout is just an early gift to us and Best Thing is still the single. Maybe they're worried Best thing might be a turnoff since it's so different and they want people to be reassured they still have rock songs

Who received the promotional message from u2.com?  I haven't re-upped my membership yet, was waiting for the gift to get released, so does that mean i won't get it?
