U2 and Coldplay version of What's Going On?

Has anyone heard a version of What's Going On with just U2 and Coldplay? I just heard it on the radio. Sounded pretty cool, especially without all those other people. I had no idea this cover existed. Anyone know anything about it?

Yes! I love this version!

It's actually the Brian Eno version, featuring Bono and that guy from Coldplay!

Where can I find this version? Saw Coldplay last week in concert here in NYC-- actually at Irving Plaza where U2 played last year. Anyway, the show was amazing, the band is great and you really should see them if you have a chance.

It's on the What's Going On single/EP/whateveryoucallit. Go out and buy it in your record shop. Proceeds will go to charity, so it's never money lost. One piece of advice though, stay far away from Fred Durst's Reality Check Remix (you DON'T want to hear that one)
And for the record, the version is called the London Version. As many said, it's a great version (and by having only two main voices it doesn't distract from the lyrics).

C ya!

Track 3 is the reason why I bought the single - totally amazing vocals from the both of them!

I think the single version is terrible, no offense to Bono but I just don't dig any of the artists who took part, especially all those stupid rappers... and especially Britney!

Thanks for the info! Coldplay came through here a few months ago, but I missed them.
I'll definitely go next time.

As for the single. Where did you buy it? I haven't been able to find it anywhere.

Hello,

I'd say check Amazon.com, CDnow or whatever online music shop you like. Do a search on the title What's Going On and you'll find it most likely. I believe it came out 6 weeks ago.

C ya!

I bought the CD last week in Australia ($13) so it should be available elsewhere if we have it I hadn't read any info about the different versions, so I did a double take on Track 3. At first I thought it was just Bono and then tuned in a bit closer... beautiful blending of voices.
I rememeber being up early to see the "Stuck In A Moment" film clip on Australian TV for the first time and seeing this young guy with a sweet sweet voice in a superbly simple film clip(walking on the beach at dawn). I could only guess the song must be called yellow, it was gentle and haunting, beautiful...the rest is history.
GO OUT AND BUY What's Going On
