Hmmm. I wonder if it was the Jacknife Lee remix that was featured in those 30-second clips?
Listen as Hope and Peace try to rhyme,
Listen over marching bands playing out their time.

That is awesome! Does it technically count as the second single or is it the first promo single? Where can I buy it?

So? There'll be 2 versions?

Black version: available everywhere on the world. And:

Coloured (black/white): just in a few stores in America and Ireland and England

Am I reading it well?

It’s a promo single, so not the second single. I like that they’re releasing remixes as well as album versions for both tracks so far!

So let us get this straight; Blackout is the first promo single?

Don't care if it's a single  ;). If I can buy it, I'm happy :).

But it could be. The RSD version Red Hill Mining Town did count as a single.

u2songs says the single might come out tomorrow, they said there would be something on Oct 20 though, so not very enthusiastic.

Halloween, as everybody knows, is Oct 31.

Most rumors do say that if the single isn't released tomorrow, it's going to be released Halloween. We take all our rumors with a tiny tiny grain of salt, though.

I'm sorry, we do not celebrate Halloween that much over here. ;)

Something is telling me it won't be tomorrow. They would announce it beforehand, right?

I live in Alaska. Even if we had a record store - we would not get this.

Anyone care to try and get me one?

It needs to release tomorrow if they want to attract mass attention. I don't think people will be interested in a Halloween video once Halloween has passed. They won't announce it.
