I don't think so. I'm reading the magazine now and didn't mention the release of a new single....but there is a rumour going on that it will be released on Sunday (saw a comment by a person that it will be released to Q TV) but the source is questionable. I don't think it's a good idea to get our hopes up....yet  ;)

Someone on Youtube said it was going to be released next week and he posted that comment 4 days ago.  So I wonder if its true the single is coming or just another rumor? Meditate on this I will......

The source is questionable as I said. Plus we don't know who the person who made that comment on Youtube. I'll just keep monitoring Q Magazine's website for any developments (like the rest of us I hope ;) )

I wonder where all these people are getting these so called release dates?  Some say this sunday and some are saying the 6th.   ::)

If a single comes out tomorrow, I just might soil myself.  I am getting so anxious to here the "new" U2.  I have loved all of the hype, no pun intended, and can't stand it anymore!!!!  You are right though, where are all of these "sources" getting there dates from?
Title: Re: 1e single befor 3 january

Well I think it is safe to say there are ALOT of bad people out there who revel on our obsession...  :-\

I expect the 1st single this week. Next week at the latest. We're what - 60 days away from the album?

#@!

I expect it out any day it'll drop like an atomic bomb, no pun intended.

Post by: irvspad on January 04, 2009, 01:33:35 PM
I wouldn't be surprised if we hear the 1st single on radio this week...Vertigo was released to radio Sept. 22...two months before HTDAAB was released. 
Title: Re: 1e single befor 3 january
Post by: Nielsen on January 04, 2009, 01:36:14 PM
That was because U2 heavily promoted the album in contrast to other albums they released. But that doesn't mean that just because they may not release early doesn't mean they should leave their fans in meltdown due to waiting so........


RELEASE IT NOW! (pretty please  ;D ;D)
Title: Re: 1e single befor 3 january
Post by: Evil Bono on January 04, 2009, 02:32:47 PM
Does anyone remember how they released Vertigo?  Did they announce the date?
Title: Re: 1e single befor 3 january
Post by: LaughingGas on January 04, 2009, 02:40:13 PM
I am not exactly sure, but I believe that there was a release date for Vertigo before it came out. 
Title: Re: 1e single befor 3 january
Post by: singnomore on January 04, 2009, 03:25:47 PM
There was a release date - they did a live performance before its release at the BBC car park if i'm right?

I believe there was a few days notice before it was released to radio on Sept. 24, 2004 (HTDAAB was released on Nov. 22, 2004).  The commercial single was released on Nov. 8, 2004, and that was definitely announced beforehand.
Title: Re: 1e single befor 3 january
Post by: irvspad on January 04, 2009, 07:49:28 PM
To streetmission's point...it wouldn't be unlikely for the new single to hit radio some time this week.  I'm just being optimistic like everyone else!  ;D
Title: Re: 1e single befor 3 january

Title: Re: 1e single befor 3 january
Post by: streetmission on January 04, 2009, 08:06:50 PM
I expect it to be released this coming week.  Why else would they shoot the music video for the new single the second week of December?  Perhaps an official announcement tomorrow?

*crosses fingers*

I do hope so! That would be the best news ever!


And I agree that the new single should be hitting the airwaves soon...very soon...

2 months is roughly the standard timeline in the music industry!

FWIW, we're hearing rumors along these exact lines. I just posted about it (http://www.atu2.com/news/article.src?ID=5175) in OTR.

Post by: TheFlyingLemon on January 04, 2009, 09:42:16 PM
Thanks Matt, I really hope the single comes this week or next week. All I know, it has to be soon.

And hope these rumours are true, crossed fingers.

My guess is this Sunday (when we first hear the song, not the actual release date). Dave Fanning's radio show here in Ireland usually gets the world premiere of a new U2 track. Dave Fanning broadcasts on RTE 2FM Sunday night into Monday morning from midnight to 2am Irish time.  :)

I'm hoping and expecting that U2 will release the first single allegedly "get your boots on" by the end of this week. ;)
Title: Re: 1e single befor 3 january
Post by: Revolver7 on January 05, 2009, 05:41:27 PM
Before I listen to Get Your Boots On, I'm going to put on a pair of boots...maybe it'll set the mood! Maybe it'll help me relate!  ;D

I just bought a new pair of boots...but I didn't think of the relevance until now!  ;D

U2.com said they were marching in boots.  Should give an idea of what the beat is like.

I'm going to try...

If you are on this forum, I would say your chances of not listening to it are hovering somewhere around 0%...but good luck.

Hopefully you won't be able to avoid hearing it.  It'll be all over the radio, tv, internet, and even the PA system when you go to the store!
Title: Re: 1e single befor 3 january

I doubt the PA system at a store.  I work at a store and they leave it on one station that plays old out dated songs over and over again.

Got a note tonight from a U2 fan on the east coast who says a local radio station announced today that the new U2 single will "hit the airwaves" next week. I'm trying to dig for some more info. before posting on the home page, but thought I'd share what I heard in the forum.

I'd just like to say this forum has such great admins that will post something just to give us some hope even if it's not concrete yet.  even though it's hard to even wait that long.

Even if it's not until Jan. 19...we can do it!  It's only about a week and a half away.  And Jan. 19 is MLK Jr. Day in the US, a national holiday.  Interesting choice if it will be released on the 19th.
