This story is new to the readers of our blog but not to the members of our Forum. Back in February I started a competition/Joke called “Give a name to the new U2 album“, we received a lot of entries (more or less serious) with working titles and there was mine…Mercy/No Line On the Horizon. This list has been delivered many times to U2, at their Hanover Quay studios in Dublin during March, April and June. So, I Won my own competition and I wonder if U2 got inspiration from our idea.
The name No Line On The Horizon went out, just as the title of a song, during an interview to Bono to Usa Today last year.
Believe it or not, you can read the story/photos/working titles and the letter we left to U2 inside the U2Star Message Board
