I think the news must be the new single. Vertigo was first played in September 2004, followed by the release of the album 2 months later in November. Now, most people from the U2 camp (or close to it) are saying February is the month in which the album will be released. If so, subtract 2 months and you get the approximate time of the first single, i.e. December.

Come on boys!

We know, but it's fun to torture ourselves like this.

Sorry, that was directed to those who thought it could be a tour announcement or something to that effect. Most people here seem to think it's the new song, and it seems like this will be the case. But of course, knowing U2, delays usually abound...sigh...

But I just don't see them releasing a single before Christmas, wouldn't be wise from a marketing point of view. I reckon they may be giving us an official release date, which would be great.

Wouldn't releasing it before Christmas be a wise decision considering the amount of gifts being bought? Although I do think you're right...more likely it's a date in the near to very near future.

I have a feeling that the song will released to radio this week.  I'm trying to have Kevin and Bean on in the mornings because they're usually pretty timely about new U2 songs.
