for those interested.. a new U2 song leaked to the web today. it's a very poor recording in terms of audio recording, basically someone standing outside of Bono's beachside house. It still sounds cool though. It's apparently, Song for Someone, a song that's been mentioned by the band. 

 

You dont have to look to hard to find it online.. check out some of the popular fan sites. 

 

Some points of interest

- you can hear female vocals

- it's midtempo, somewhat reminiscent of Your Blue Room or Staring at the Sun.. features a repetitive chorus.. and a cool Edge solo

- likely a Danger Mouse production.. if you listened to the Broken Bells records, you'll hear similarities here

- the clip runs 5 minutes, but is interrupted by the sound of waves crashing, and people talking

Concert promoter Denis Desmond says U2 is in talks to play again at Dublin's Croke Park in 2016.

 

Desmond, the co-founder of MCD Productions, was on Today FM's Ray D'Arcy Show on Wednesday morning. The conversation focused on the recent mess where Garth Brooks canceled five shows at the stadium, but near the end of the interview, they looked ahead to future shows.

 

D'Arcy: What about next year, would you be in talks with people for Croke Park gigs for next year?

 

Desmond: Yes, we would be.

 

D'Arcy: Would U2 be in the frame for that?

 

Desmond: No, not next year, but the year after.

 

The conversation can be heard online (at least temporarily) on the Today FM website.

 

U2 has played Croke Park 10 times dating back to 1985, including three shows in 2009 as part of the 360 tour.

If the above becomes true then there is quite a gap between album and tour which could mean the band may start the tour in the U.S and then coming to Europe afterwards, that's if the album comes out next year sometime. Guessing it will be in june or july for Croke so that's halfway through 2016. Pretty much 2 years away. I've been saving for the tour 5 months ago, i'll be doing shit loads of shows at this rate ;)
