Can Someone ID this? (Is this U2?)

I received an mp3 in e-mail titled Love U2 . I thought it had something to do with the Itunes video of the same name but instead its a song I haven't heard before. It sounds kind of Raw and not that much like U2. Is this one of the much talked about outtakes? Or is it even U2?

I am not going to post it for download right now. Instead I put it on my myspace music player.

Click on the second song under Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.

It sounds a bit like Edge, and reminds me of Stateless. Dont think it is tho. I quite like it if anyone knows who it is.

But... who sent it to you? Can you identify the source? and what did they say it was?

It's concerning....

A google search based on some sentences of the lyrics didn't really bring up anything.

I already asked the person who sent it where it was from. It was apprently from an online video. Not a music video but someone's home video type thing that had U2 in the tags but it was not in english so they have no idea what it said about the video.

People are saying its not U2 so I guess its not that much to be concerned about. I kinda thought there were some parts that sounded off from Bono but then others sounded a lot like him. I was thinking maybe a young Bono in an outtake but it seems not.

So for now unless someone else happens to know where this is from I guess Case Closed.

Considering that it doesn't even sound like Bono (or Edge), it's clearly not.

Puts me in mind of someone playing around with Bowie's "Wild is the Wind".??
I think I hear Bowie in the background

It sounded a bit like Travis, maybe one of the young Brit bands ?
No way is that Bono singing.

Definitely not U2 or Travis
Kind of sounds like James but after doing some extensive googling with what little lyrics there are -- Nothing

Maybe it's someone's demo out there on the net?

The singer sounds a bit too British to be Bono. I hope it's not him, cause I don't like the song at all.
