GOOYOW... where's the video?
« on: November 11, 2017, 09:27:25 PM »
Was it officially a single, or just an album sneak peek? Little confused about this.
The Edge: “[Eno] would love to see us making albums a bit more like [Zooropa]. Where we go, ‘You know what? We’re not going to second-guess any of this. Let’s just go for it.’”

U2 Fans: We'd all love to see that, Edge.

UPDATE: So U2 shot another video for GOOYOW at their London gig last weekend. Second one after Mexico.

I wouldn't be surprised if they're working on other versions of the song, and like EBW, take too long, and lose the momentum by the time they finally decide which one to release.

That londen video is already shown.

I'm also struggeling in calling songs 'singles', Best Thing definitly is, The Blackout could be next week, GOOYOW maybe but American Soul? Both (A.Soul and Blackout) are released spontaneous as a candy, so are or aren't they singles?

Maybe they’re going to drop a video album a la Beyonce
The music will provide the light you cannot resist

They only broadcast the first performance of that song at London.  The band replayed the song a 2nd time with audience members holding up placards with various slogans on (Edge claimed he designed the one with "down with that sort of thing" on it).  It was this 2nd performance from London that Bono specifically said was a video shoot for the song.

It's kinda weird they've released the song for purchase on iTunes, but it isn't getting "single" publicity, and they're still working on a music video.

It's not the first time they've done things out of order though.
