Ordinary Love News & Rumours (Merged)

Recommended Posts

So the idea is that many in Africas developing nations, who have imported the developed worlds unwanted record players, have the opportunity to listen to this music proudly in environments that I cant imagine re; poverty and 'dont have it'?

That's my take on it....

What an absolutely wonderful idea to bring this out on vinyl. The developed world will access it online anyway,so no big deal.

U2's new song, "Ordinary Love," will be available as a 10-inch vinyl release on November 29th. That's according to the Record Store Day website, which lists it among a long list of "special releases" that'll be available on Black Friday, usually the busiest shopping day of the year. On their Facebook page, the folks at RSD also say it'll be available at "indie record shops around the world."


The RSD website link above says that there's a song called "Breath" on side B of the vinyl. That could be a misprint and should say "Breathe," or it could be the correct name for the alternate version of "Breathe" that U2 originally wrote with Nelson Mandela in mind and was included in a documentary about South Africa earlier this year. Or it could be something else altogether.


In any case, mark your calendars for November 29 and find your nearest indie record store if this is something you want for your U2 collection.


As for the song itself, "Ordinary Love" is part of the soundtrack for the upcoming filmMandela: Long Walk To Freedom. It's also rumored to premiere tomorrow (October 30) on YouTube and U2.com, but there's still no confirmation of that.

Hopefully I can get this record in New Zealand but it will probably not be released here like most things!!!

I read that it would be only 10.000 copies.

So I guess it will be hard for those who don´t live in USA/Europe.

We should enter the competition.

U2 is being featured on the soundtrack to the movie as well, which is being released on CD on November 25 in the US.  Amazon.com haven't confirmed what U2 track is on the soundtrack yet, but it would only make sense that it's "Ordinary Love".

Getting WAIE was agony! trapsing round my hometown all day!, it's about going to your local record store and not ordering in like a lazy fat porker. Worth checking your local store to see if they are in for the Black Friday or you could be travelling some distance to get one as some won't send out.
