Fans of U2 are receiving some interesting mail. It's all connected to a new song called “Blackout” and the upcoming album Songs of Experience. Fan site, @U2 reports that several fans received a letter in the mail containing text referencing William Blake’s Songs Of Innocence And Experience, with a super-imposed silhouette of Bono’s son and Edge’sdaughter revealing the words: "Blackout … It’s clear who you are." And at the bottom of the page, it reads “U2 will announce _____ on ______,” with the title and date blacked out.  The message was so cryptic and unexpected that some fans admitted throwing it away thinking it was "junk mail."
