There is a good possibly aburrow that it could leak out somewhere. But I thought Vertigo came out because of the ipod commercial  they did , I could be wrong.

They better top Coldplay's commercial (I love that one though  :P)

I'm sure it will be available somewhere on the Web long before it actually hits radio. I remember accessing Vertigo before its official release ... on a thread on this very web site.

I remember doing that too!  I'm sure I'll be hearing it online before I ever hear it on the radio.

They won't have to try hard to top Coldplay. Those boys cannot dance to save their lives. BUT isn't there a rumor of a schism between U2 and Apple? So perhaps there won't be an Apple ad this time out.

Seriously, do you think there is? (Off topic.)

If I remember correctly last time there were leaks on the net because the album was stolen.

We still have two months to go.  That is a lot of time for the album to be "stolen" and for songs to surface.  Isn't Bono due to blare the new songs out of his home so fans can record them on their cell phones and put it on the web??? Haha.

Coldplay---umm. isn't this a bit off topic?  Didn't Eno work a little on Viva with them?  I thought I heard that somewhere.

I think Coldplay get a little over-accused in this regard tbh. They do "borrow" U2's sound on occasion but not exclusively. I'm not a big fan of theirs, but they have some good songs - Viva La Vida for instance is a good listen and anything but a U2 rip-off. All bands mimic ithers to an extent. Even U2 in the early days took heavy leanings from the likes of The Clash, Joy Division etc.

As a guy who loved the hell outta Viva La Vida I will just say 1)if your gonna rip someone off, who better than U2, but 2) at least admit to it.

In the begining was amusing to see Coldplay "borrow" a few things from the boys.
As a hardcore u2 fan I considered it a cool tribute.

Now, just watching Chris Martin with a Vertigo-like jacket it is plain annoying....

Okay, back to the topic of the single...Does anybody know if the radio will be the first place we can hear it (aside from any leaks), or will it be released on iTunes or what have you at the same time?
