Just picked up from the BBC wesite and I guess on others by now .........

U2's new album is expected to be released in November

A rough cut of a new album by U2 has gone missing from a photo shoot - prompting fears it may be posted on the internet months before its release.

Police in Nice, in the south of France, said the band had made statements about a possible theft after the shoot at a recording studio in the city.

About 20 people are being questioned about the material's disappearance at the Victorine studios on Tuesday.

The album, which has not yet been named, is due for release in November.
