After listening to the clip in a clearer version ten times straight, I'm pretty sure this isn't Bono simply playing a recording.
I think it is U2 playing the music for Bono. Listen to the Strokes song and then listen to the clip. The drums are live, at least I'm pretty sure. At :50 when the guitar disappears, you can hear Bono in a low voice singing lyrics. If you listen closely you can tell that it isn't the original (youtube) version of the song being played. It has to be either a studio jam by The Strokes that Bono is singing to or the rest of U2 is playing behind him.

Lol... this is hilarious. The most hyped up beach clip may not even be a U2 song!

Kinda disappointing though.

maybe U2 are going back to the Rattle & Hum days and will throw in some collaborations

I'm not a big fan of 409 anyway
if only because there wasn't enough 409 to become a fan of

Here's my ideas

1. U2 just covering the song
2. U2 and the The Strokes recording the song together
3. Bono and the Strokes recording together
4. U2 bought the rights to the song for themselves

or something else

exactly. It's Bono's voice... And if it's Bono and that is his falsetto...

Yeah, they're probably covering it, and it'll end up as a B-side.

I clearly remember fake U2-songs before HTDAAB, so maybe all these are fakes? Maybe some guy wanted to make some new beach clips and pretend it is new U2? It would not surprise me. It has happened every time since POP. It would surprise me, however, if we not get any fake songs. Wasn't there even a fake cover last time? And even a fake name on the album?
But maybe U2 are covering Strokes in this song, and maybe the other songs are covers aswell. Maybe some of them are U2-songs. Who knows. Maybe these songs are not from the beach in Eze at all? Lots of maybe's.
In either case. I love these times, waiting, speculating about the new U2.

Sounds like Bono to me, and drums sound live. (in which case, Adam and Edge are likely playing along too) Is it possible both bands produced such a similar song?

the strokes were in nice last week playing a show, and i read on a strokes message board that bono was at the show.

bono's house in france is very close to nice. perhaps he invited the strokes over and they were jamming with u2. who knows.....i think this IS bono singing and he is singing a strokes song.

don't know whether anyone has mentioned this or I'm just crazy, but does any hear a discotheque-like riff about 10 seconds from the end of the song?
