2. It is a fan site, and it doesn’t even claim the song was written by OR.

3. Cool, Lanois also played on some songs he produced for the band.

4. I’ve read the liner notes too.
Haha, ok BVS

Agreed. A lovely song with a serious subject matter. The bridge into the strings is my favorite part.

I feel like we already came to that conclusion a while ago.

SOL may now be a true single? I heard it yesterday on 1st Wave (Sirius/XM radio) and what was interesting is that they played AIWIY right before it.

Not really sure what the hype about this song is though; it's OK but not great by any stretch.

What’s funny is that I was in your boat about a week ago and then the song just hit me. It’s simple and has a lot of open air, which I really appreciate. The breakdown after the 2nd chorus is spine tingling.

For me it’s just a beautiful song. It has a nice sound to it, very good lyrics(not always a given these days) and a really catchy and fun chorus. It’s by no means a “rocker” but it’s a good tune.

In the Rolling Stone interview Bono seemed to not rule out releasing this as a single. Sure sounded like Love is Bigger has the best chance at being the third single however.

In the Rolling Stone interview, Bono was asked about the music to Summer of Love and he stated that the cool guitar part was written by Tedder's bandmate (Kuntzle) in One Republic. Bono then said that Edge was excited about the freedom he was given by being able to sample others' work on this album.

Which is really fucking annoying. How is this any different to using the Haim riff? Summer of Love is an awesome song and is far bigger than that riff, but why not make it crystal clear who wrote it?
This is a guitar based rock band. So if a riff is prominent in a song and the liner notes say 'music by U2' you're going to assume U2 wrote that riff.
Just credit it for god's sake.

Agree. And wtf does 'sample others' work' mean? Is it use others' work? Experiment with it? Be inspired by it? Seems odd. There was another thread here where this was debated and it seemed to go nowhere. I think the song is ok, but TBH I really want to know if this is a proper U2 song or something they outsourced to a younger mob of producers and agreed to publish as their own.

Well it’s sampling, like a big chunk of Pop, where they built around a groove, riff, etc. of another song. This was never a published riff, so this is more like when Eno would bring in a string loop or ambient piece he built for the band to build around. Eno does this with most of the bands he produces.

Right. Writing credits are a pretty fluid thing anyway, and stuff like this seems like it goes in line with stuff that's happened in the past anyway.

If Tedder didn't get a credit for writing the chorus melody for EBW, then stuff like this doesn't surprise me. If they didn't credit people like Eno and Lanois in the past, or Dallas for his role in part of the effect for SUC, or the Pop samples and so on, I'm not too worried about it as a listener at this point. That's just me though.
