NME.COM has the low-down on the follow-up to 'All That You Can't Leave Behind'...
[url=]U2 have confirmed more details of their new album to NME.COM.
The currently untitled record is set for release on November 22. NME.COM can reveal titles of some of the songs on the record will be ‘Vertigo’, ‘Man And A Woman’, ‘Yahweh’, ‘Crumbs From Your Table’ and ‘City Of Blinding Lights’.
NME.COM understands that ‘Vertigo’ is a likely single, although a spokesperson for the band was unable to confirm it.
As previously reported on NME.COM, a CD containing some new songs from the album went missing during a photo session in Nice.
Singer Bono said that the band would be willing to release the record early, rather than face an online leak four months before release.
He said: “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 album is the follow-up to 2000’s ’All That You Can’t Leave Behind’.
