Four of U2's new songs have reportedly been leaked online. According to British tabloid The Sun, a fan passing by frontman Bono's home in the south of France heard the music blasting, then recorded the tracks and uploaded them on YouTube. Possible song titles include the title track, "No Line on the Horizon," "Moment of Surrender," "For Your Love," and "Sexy Boots," which could be the first single. The set is expected to be released this November.

From the time I started to post this, fifteen minutes later, I discovered this story to be untrue. In fact several sources on the web have started to imply that this story was leaked from the U2 camp in order to create buzz for the upcoming album.
Jimmy Page is slated to close out the 2008 Olympics on August 24th with a performance with R&B pop singer Leona Lewis, according to gigwise.com. It's still unknown if between Page and Lewis will be performing a newly-written collaboration or a song from one of their respective catalogues. Their Olympic performance marks the first time that the pair has ever performed together.
