Last week, U2 had their recently completed new CD, which is planned to be released in November, stolen during a photo shoot in France. Fearing that the new album will show up on peer-to-peer file sharing services for free, U2’s lead singer Bono has come up with a solution. “If it is on the internet this week, we will release it immediately as a legal download on iTunes, and get hard copies into the shops by the end of the month,” he said. “It would be a real pity. It would screw up years of work and months of planning, not to mention f***ing up our holidays. But once it’s out, it’s out.”
