You put this question in an odd place, but anywho, it's called Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)

You can find it on iTunes

U2 and acronyms...

I dont think If God Will Send His Angels was a contender it was released too far away from christmas (2 weeks to be exact) It need to be one week!

Hmmz. It was put out in December and mentioned Christmas - I don't think it was necessarily a serious bid, but in my mind it sort-of counts.

Whatever happened to Paul McGuiness's thoughts that it doesn't make sense for a band of U2's caliber to release a CD in any other period than 4th Quarter, since you allegedly sell as many units in that one Quarter as you would the entire rest of the year?

Edge is on fire again and they'll need 3 parts of 2009 to extinguish him and then we will have an album  8)

And then we'll hear how 2010 is going to be their year.

Actually, I think that March or April is realistic.  They did have a private album party and supposedly 1/2 the album is mixed.  Give them Nov. and early Dec. to tweak it, and then Eno/Lanois can mix it in Dec./Jan., with Jan/Feb to let the Record Company to do what they do, with the first single in early March and the album by the end of April, with a tour starting in June.

I'd rather have a homerun than a bloop single.

I think the album is done and in the bag. I don't believe any of that "we've hit a rich song-writing vein" - let's not forget that 2 weeks after that comment, Lanois was in New york, mixing the album. They could have easily had the album out in november, but my guess is that did not want to get caught up in the flood of new releases before Christmas. It sort of makes sense to come out in feb/march - if anything you will have the full industry's and consumer's attention. U2 are one hell of a marketing machine; they know what they're doing.

People always miss this detail. Other reports say they're still recording, which would mean they've carried on for two and a half months since.
