U2 Unreleased Album Stolen!

Sat Jul 17, 2004 8:03 am

CNN reports that a CD containing the tracks to their new unfinished and highly anticipated album has turned up missing during a photo shoot for its cover.

Didn't they learn when their laptop containing unfinished work was stolen a couple years back? How could you have 2 years work stored on 1 CD with no backup? Sad for them but, Jeeeez..........make a backup!

I'm sure it'll pop on Kazaa or some other file sharing program. I'm sure they will get it back somehow...

I hope for U2's sake, this new record doesn't hit the internet! This reminds me about a situation back in 2000 when Journey's new album, 'Arrival' was leaked to Napster 6 months before it's scheduled release by Sony. Supposedly, someone from within Sony let an advance copy slip out of their hands. Whether or not it was intentional, is anyone's guess. Needless to say, curious fans downloaded the songs and didn't buy the record which ended up being a major disappointment for Journey. Subsequently, Sony did very little to promote 'Arrival' either, so Journey fired their asses! Ironically, Sony still continues to make money off of Journey's past catalog which sells amazingly well.
