If 'White As Snow' is a single, here's the gotta-be cover...it's another Sugimoto picture.

That said, Eno is irked that the band has dropped some of the more contemplative and sonically adventurous songs it developed. "Tell them they're being stupid cunts," he jokes, after playing a lovely discarded ballad called "Winter."

Guess Eno "won" afterall

Dunno why, but I like "Winter" better as a title. Let's hope they used the sonically adventerous version

Dave Fanning also said that it was "based on a traditional melody". Maybe an old Irish melody? This could point towards this song being linked to the "Dallas" u2.com video clip (where the band, Eno and Lanois play a haunting melody over and over).

Interesting stuff..

That's what I suspected.

But I liked Winter more as a title.

He talks about this after the song.

YouTube - Dave Fanning presents: "U2 - Get On Your Boots"

When is 'Brothers' coming out? Isn't it supposed to be later this month, if so we might get to hear 'White as snow' very soon.

This is what I've been thinking since I read the title White as Snow...it just seemed obviously connected to Winter. And I'll tell ya, it'd better sound as good on the album as it does in that studio clip.
