Wow.  That is a nice song.  Certainly a bit mellow (even for them) but still quite nice.  I had no idea they were putting out new music so it will be interesting to see what the new album sounds like.

They have never stopped putting out albums, people think of them as just an 1980s band but they have been quite prolific. I think this track is better than most of U2's post-2000 output.

Interview here from 'Fundamental' era (2003 or so) with the great Dave Fanning.

That's incredible.  Love the story about 'west end girls'.  Love hearing all of those song clips from the 80's as well as the 90's.

There is a video link to an Australian interview which is really interesting as well - they were so young! 


"every saturday night we used to go in and write a song,  and then go out afterwards"    :D

Chorus is pretty darn good.  Verses don't fully work for me.  This doesn't hold a candle to Little Things, Red Flag Day, or 13 imo.

It's Red LETTER Day, not Red Flag Day. I'm familiar with 13 or Little Things.
