new U2 album tracklisting? @ 12:17 pm

needleandspoon:
Only ten eleven songs, by the looks of things, but on the upside, Mercy seems to have been mercifully consigned the scrapheap \o/ (I know some of you like it; I find it 5 minutes of lyrical purgatory). I guess we'll see some of the also-rans appear in some sort of download-only package at some point, though I seriously doubt there are "50-60" whole, finished songs to choose from. I'm a tiny bit disappointed there seems to be only ten songs, putting it on par with the smaller albums like Zooropa, but I'd rather have ten winners than twelve also-rans. [Thanks, la_woman for the update.]

According to photos someone took of the actual pages of that issue of Q, there's an 11th song: Cedars of Lebanon.

Really? Awesome. And there will probably be an extra song on some international releases, as usual. Thanks for letting me know. I can't wait for that edition to come out.

I was kind of hoping that Mercy would be included, but I figured it would not be. I just sorta wanted a cleaned up version of it. Needless to say, I am a tad disappointed.

I like the title [i]Every Breaking Wave[/i]. Not so much liking the hyping of it being the (possible) greatest album yet, but we'll see.

I thought some of the reason they pushed off the album was because of all the music they were making. But we only end up with 11 songs. Maybe there is an EP coming out during the tour, like Zooropa? :)

I know I've heard them in interviews before about album length, and they've said they don't want to make an album that's 'too long'. Like wasn't Mercy really close to being on HTDAAB? Maybe they're scared of people not enjoying the album or not buying it because it's too long? I don't know. I've been wishing for U2 to put out a 14-16 track long album since the beginning of time. I'll admit it, I'm greedy, I want as much U2 as possible, and I don't think the bands fears are really founded. I think everyone would be just fine with a 'long' U2 album.
