"The emotions that are on this record are very abstract, out of focus, fragmented, its words are gray. But that is exactlywhat it should be."

Paul McGuinness reveals U2 release date

Hot Press, June 12, 2008

 

U2 manager Paul McGuinness has been dropping hints about the release of the new U2 album, which is provisionally planned for October.

Paul McGuinness has told the BBC that the release date for the new U2 album is "not clear yet but I would think towards the end of October. We will obviously work with whatever technology is available to make the release as interesting as possible. But for U2, physical sales are still an enormous part of our business and we still sell a lot of actual CDs."

Asked what he thought of the "pay what you like" online release Radiohead gave In Rainbows, McGuinness profered that it "to some extent backfired. 60 to 70% of the people who downloaded the record stole it anyway, even though it was available for free."
