Full confession: I may have had an early listen to maybe half a dozen songs from U2's upcoming album some time back.
Following a mysterious mailout campaign, U2 have confirmed their new single is called "The Blackout", and you can hear a bit of it now.
The appropriately black-and-white video of the energetic " The Blackout" was recorded live, and isn't intended as the lead single off the album.
"The Blackout" is the second advance from the new U2 and the official first single, "You're The Best Thing About Me", releases September 6. But with a band that has been putting out music for over 40 years, that is to be expected.
Bono said that the new album had a number of songs conceived as letters - including one, American Soul, addressed to the United States and pointing to the country's historic welcome of foreigners.

"It's a attractive idea and that's why we get worked up about it", said Bono, whose best-known songs include Pride (In the Name of Love), about slain civil rights icon Martin Luther King Jr.
Bono, in a separate interview with the magazine, said that U2 was also trying to cut down the size of the album and saw a value in returning to the studio to fine-tune its performance.
