I've noticed they seem to be on a 13 month release schedule.

Feb 2009 - Medium, Rare, Remastered
Mar 2010 - Artificial Horizon
Apr 2011 - Duals
May 2012 - U22  (based on U2.com's announcement that "it's looking good for an early May release.")

For those of you who don't yet know about the latest update on the 2-CD U22 Set, here is some of the info from the email that U2.com sent today (May 16, 2012):
Production has taken slightly longer than planned but to make the final wait pass a little more quickly, today we're making available a fourth live track for download - Unknown Caller, a bonus track that's not on U22.  And on May 30th, everyone who's resubscribed for 2012 will be able to download EIGHT more tracks.

What does that last part mean?
May 30th - download EIGHT more tracks . . . . .

I'm thinking it means we won't receive the 2-CD U22 Set until sometime in June . . . . and to compensate us for waiting until June (rather than May), here's 8 more downloads . . . . . which are actually tracks that will be on the 2-CD U22 Set.

Does anyone have an alternative theory?

I THINK "Unknown Caller" was the first song cut from U22... in other words, it was #23 on the list in terms of votes.  Does anyone remember?  If that's the case, it's POSSIBLE that the next 8 downloads will be numbers 24 through 31 on the list.  At least, that would be totally awesome.  However, the cynic in me agrees with Dagobah and fears that the next 8 downloads will be tracks that are already on U22.  Hmmm.

EDIT.... Holy cow!  A moderator in the U2.com forums just posted this:

"the 8 tracks are not on U22, they are bonus tracks. You folks asked for this, I passed it on, and it got done. Amazed. And delighted." - Bigwave (u2.com mod)

AAANNND... Nevermind!   >:(

just an update, looks like i got it wrong, (bit overexcited) - the 8 tracks released on May 30th will be from the U22 CD, not bonus tracks... apologies.Although its great we got the bonus track of Unknown Caller, maybe more will be forthcoming in time, ... Admin

yeah the emails they've sent out to non-subscribers clearly states the 8 tracks are taken from the U22 compilation and aren't tracks that didn't make the cut...

I'm writing the OTR column over at atu2.com this weekend and I'm asking for more unreleased tracks.  :-)

Gah.

Slightly less respect.

I hope they listen to your request and give us some more bonus material.

It looks like the version of "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" on U22 will be the one from Johannesberg with Hugh Maskela on trumpet.  Awesome.

Remains to be seen if these videos are the actual included tracks or not.

The 45s clip of "I Still Haven't Found" was labelled as being from Boston on the voting tracks.  The video is from Johannesburg.

The 45s audio clip of "The Fly" for voting was from Nashville, the video they posted was from East Lansing.
The 45s audio clip of "UTEOTW" was from Mexico, and the video posted is Auckland.

Now the 45s clip and the video for "Mysterious Ways" are both from Capetown.  And the 45s clip and the video for "Magnificent" were both from Zurich 1.

I guess we won't know till we get the cd.  I'm going to start a new thread for identifying where these tracks come from...

First 3 Download Tracks ARE Unique
« Reply #56 on: May 30, 2012, 06:15:03 PM »
I realised an interesting note about the first three preview downloads when I saw the extracted file names of the new eight downloads.  What led me to this realisation was that the new downloads were titled in the Tunes disc and track style.  That made me figure that these were direct rips from the CDs.  It seems they indeed are, because there are no fade-ins or fade-outs.  These tracks, therefore, are almost certainly identical to the CD versions we will get.

So what makes the first three preview tracks tracks unique is that they are fade-in/fade-out edits of the CD tracks.

Exciting, right?  ;)

Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
You fritter and waste the hours in an off hand way
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for U22 to show up in my post office box

So I guess no one has received this yet? Seems odd after it's been in the post for a week. Someone has to live close to where they mailed them out, no? Hell, I'm just interested to see what the front cover of the book looks like.
