Riot Act


U2
« on: July 15, 2004, 04:16:33 PM »

Anyway, I found some random U2 news, I thought I would share here.  U2's unreleased / unfinished album was apparently stolen during the photoshoot for the cover art.

Awww... I feel bad for U2.  Maybe this will cause them to release their album sooner rather than later.  Or maybe it was all an honest mistake??  It's gotta suck, either way.

***

NICE, France - An unfinished copy of U2's upcoming CD disappeared from a photo shoot the Irish rock band was attending in the south of France, police said Thursday.

The CD, not scheduled for release until this Fall, vanished Tuesday while the band was in a studio outside the Riviera city of Nice having pictures taken for the album cover.

About 20 people who were present during the photo shoot were questioned by police, who said it was still unclear if the CD's disappearance was accidental or theft.

The finished album is expected to hit music stores next November, with singles planned for release in September.

 Now for the “what if” type comment…. What if CD was to disappear mysteriously for no one to ever here… sorry. cruel joke (this not to mean i don't have confidence in CD being released sometimes soon and being amazing... nah)

U2 definitely took some time recording this thing. They also made a lot of comments on how good of a material they have here. This is news, although there aren’t to may details of how this might have happen and it’s also weird that something like would be easy to steal.

One might consider this as just a strange attempt at a publicity stunt, though can’t imagine how they can benefit form it.. at this stage at least.

Again hard to imagine that someone just stole this. It may not be complete bull, but surely there a lot of things that seem at least improbable

U2 plan to release their new songs via the Internet if a stolen CD leaks, BONO has said.

As revealed by NME.COM, the band have been working on the follow-up to ?All That You Can?t Leave Behind? for much of the year. The album, which is said to have a working title of ?Vertigo?, isn?t due until the autumn at the earliest.

During a photo session in Nice, a CD containing some new songs from the forthcoming album went missing.

According to the Daily Telegraph: "If it is on the Internet this week, we will release it immediately as a legal download on iTunes, and get hard copies into the shops by the end of the month. It would be a real pity. It would screw up years of work and months of planning, not to mention f**king up our holidays. But once it's out, it's out."

The CD that was stolen belonged to guitarist The Edge, who said that it "doesn?t seem credible" that it could have been taken.

Band manager Paul McGuiness added: "The recording of this album has been going so well. The band is so excited about its release. It would be a shame if unfinished work fell into the wrong hands."

Lucian Grainge, chairman and CEO of Universal Music Group UK, added: "This matter is of great concern to us. As the missing CD is our property we are very keen to find it as soon as possible. The French police are being extremely helpful in this regard."

Do you know who has the CD? If so, NME.COM will pass it onto the band for you, no questions asked. E-mail details tonews@nme.com.

I feel bad for the band, hopefully it won?t leak, if I was the one with the cd in my hands, I wouldn?t share it with anyone at all. Can you imagine...you being the only one in the world, except for the band and their collaborators, with new U2 stuff?

I'm a true U2 fan.

I've got all of their albums (original, not copies) and some rare stuff.

But if I can listen to the new album 4 months earlier, I'll download it. That doesn't mean that I won't buy it. I always support the bands I love.

It might be a good thing for their music. Maybe more people will listen to the album and then buy it. People that didn't like U2 that much...

Nov. 23 is going to be a beautiful day for U2 fans.

Bono and the boys have announced plans to release their still untitled album in the U.S. then, a day after it drops in the U.K. The first single, "Vertigo," will hit radio on Sept. 24, while a video for the song will debut in October.

U2's 11th studio album, produced by Steve Lillywhite, is the follow-up to their multiple Grammy-winning 2000 disc, All That You Can Leave Behind. Besides "Vertigo," other song titles rumored to be on the Irish rockers' set include "Tough" and "Full Metal Jacket."

The band has been previewing tracks to select music industry types, and the buzz has been tremendous. Time magazine's Josh Tyrangiel says the new CD "is just full of confident, expansive guitar rock from the masters of the form. All the old tricks--the Edge's echoing guitar notes,Larry Mullen Jr.'s martial snare--still work...[Bono] has enormous assuredness, and the occasional cracks in his voice make the bad-relationship songs (and, as always, there are quite a few) darker and more dramatic."

U2 fan site @U2 quotes VH1 Senior Vice President Bill Flanagan saying, "It's the best album they have ever done. It's going to knock [listeners] out." And British rock writer Neil McCormick tells Hot Press magazine that "Vertigo" "is like the early U2 pumped up in the 21st century, a really exciting record."

The album's release will apparently not be impacted by the disappearance of early version of the album. A compact disc containing unmixed versions of the tracks went missing from a recording studio in Nice, France, in July, prompting worries that the songs could be leaked to the Internet, potentially costing the quartet, arguably the most popular rock band in the world, and its label, Interscope, millions in lost revenue.

With French investigators still not finding what they're looking for, Bono told London's Daily Telegraph that the group may try and head off such a disastrous leak by making the album available early as a legal download on Apple's iTunes should file-swappers get their hands on it.

"If it is on the Internet this week, we will release it immediately as a legal download on iTunes, and get hard copies into the shops by the end of the month," the singer said. "It would be a real pity. It would screw up years of work and months of planning, not to mention f--king up our holidays. But once it's out. It's out."

A cursory scan of the major music-swapping sites haven't turned up any of the MIA tracks.

For now, the album will be on shelves--and iTunes--in November, with a U.S. tour slated for the spring.
