2nd best new song after Magnificent....

Seriously, the voices/backing/production sound VERY familiar and no Gavin song is credited. That 8 minute EPK is for media consumption and news pieces meaning u2 would have all permissions set up.

If you listen to the bootleg, you can hear that they played part of Space Oddity before this song. Bono is definitely the main voice, and there are some obvious Bono/Edge/Brian/Danny harmonies, so I'm thinking it came out of the NLOTH/SOA sessions.

It's got to be Gavin Friday's "Kingdom"... on his Twitter page it simply reads...

"KINGDOM... soon!"

Ok I just realized something about the opening song speculated to be Kingdom... didn't Gavin's message on Twitter say "Kingdom... soon"?
Is it my imagination or is the word being repeated over and over in that song the word "soon".
maybe that's reading too much into it.

yeah, that's what a couple of us were thinking too. honestly, if this was a new U2 song, i think we'd know already. a band member would have said something.

Ah ok I hadn't seen that exact thing mentioned before... thought maybe Gavin was giving us a hint with the lyric.

It doesn't seem like it would make much sense to use someone else's music to promote a U2 tour... So I'm hoping it's from SOA.

Ok so we know the song is Kingdom and that Gavin has mentioned it before, but is there confirmation somewhere that Kingdom is a (future) Gavin Friday song?

bc, I went looking around last night, and it's not a song of his that's out, as far as I could tell - and I looked at his solo albums, soundtracks and scores. I also read on his MySpace page that he's planning on releasing a new album next year, but if it's not till then, I'm wondering if he'd even have a fully prepared version of the song ready now.

I've listened to it multiple times, and there's obviously a lot of vocal layering, but I'd almost bet money that Bono is one of the voices. If it is Gavin's song, then maybe Bono sang on it?

Someone in Barca needs to get on this investigation now.

^ I dug around in the Gavin info too and didn't come up with anything about the song, that's why I've been wondering why people have been saying they think it's a Gavin Friday song. How did people come up with this besides the one time Gavin posted Kingdom... soon. Is that the only thing people are basing the speculation that it's his song on?

Yet every Vertigo Tour show's opening song was not a U2 song, but The Arcade Fire's Wake Up ...

Is it possible that the song Kingdom of Your Love that is on the list hanging behind Edge in the NLOTH book could have just been shortened to Kingdom? (or they are just calling it that like a nickname)
