NICE, France (AP) - 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.

From U2.com

songs from the band’s new album has gone missing after a photo session.

Speaking to U2.Com, Edge said, 'A large slice of two years work lifted via a piece of round plastic. It doesn't seem credible but that's what's just happened to us...and it was my CD.'

The CD went missing during a photo-shoot in the south of France. The band recently completed much of the recording of the highly anticipated new album in Dublin and have been involved in post-production work in France.

It will be the first new studio album from U2 since All That You Can’t Leave Behind nearly four years ago.

French police have already launched a major investigation.

'The recording of this album has been going so well.' added Paul McGuinness of Principle Management. 'The band is so excited about its release. It would be a shame if unfinished work fell into the wrong hands.'

'This matter is of great concern to us.' said Lucian Grainge, Chairman and CEO of Universal Music Group UK. 'As the missing CD is our property, we're very keen find it as soon as possible and the French Police are being extremely helpful in this regard.'

More news as we get it.

I've just been watching Greatest Hits [of U2 obviously] on the Q music channel. I'd still be watching it but I got kicked out of the living room. So I'm here asking questions. Does anyone know where the Sunday Bloody Sunday video was shot? And could someone tell me what the song is about? I don't know much about the history/politics/content of alot of their songs. Or if you can't be bothered to explain does anybody know of any good sites I could read up about it?
