It sounds the lovechild of "Because" by the Beatles and Your Blue Room - and it sounds like U2. I'm not sold on this Gavin Friday thing yet.

I REALLY like it, that's for sure.

Oooh yeah Because


and yeah, that's what I've been asking, why it's been getting said it's a Gavin song.

I agree, it sounds Passengers/Eno-esque to me.

The drumming sounds like a lighter Plot 180. It's an intriguing mystery.

Sing yourself on down the street
Sing yourself right off your feet
Sing yourself away from victory and from defeat
Sing yourself with (?)
Sing yourself to hold my gun
The toughness of someone's lost
And someone else has won


Is that what he's singing or am I too sleepy to try this?
(Btw, having heard this a bunch of times now on that video... I'm sure Bono is on this somewhere, even if it's not U2. And Eno too.)

Close!

I hear:

Sing yourself on down the street
Sing yourself right off your feet
Sing yourself away from victory and from defeat
Sing yourself with fife and drum
Sing yourself to overcome
The thought that someone's lost
And someone else has won

Yup, guess you've nailed it!
"Thought that" makes more sense and I really wasn't liking that "hold my gun" part. But seriously, it's "to overcome" for sure. Still not sure on "fife and drum" but it sounds right anyway.

EDIT: Heard it again; "fife and drum" seems correct also. And for Christ's sake, Bono's voice timbre is in there and his voice isn't that commom. What I wonder now if this is some cool intro they've recorded especifically for this or if it's a new song just waiting to be released.
AND for those of you thinking it's Gavin, just listen "In the Name of the Father". It can't be the same person.

This has to be a song from "Songs of Ascent." It's got a distinct Moroccan feel to it, it has a Passengers feel to it, it had to come from the Fez sessions (or inspired by them). I'd bet the bank on it. It's got a meditative sound as well, which Bono has already discussed.

These guys are smart...they tease the new album at shows all Summer long and into the Fall, and before Halloween, bang...we have a new album that we will have already heard parts of. If it is called Kingdom, then Gavin Friday is helping his guys out and going viral for them.

Well, like I said in the SOA thread, maybe this is Kingdom of Your Love

It has to be a U2 song, those lyrics are pure Bono.

To me it sounds like a sibling to Daylight, and sort of like Walk To The Water or something:


At least the intro bits and some of the vocals are similar...

Kingdom by Gavin Friday, with Bono vocals.


If any of the mods read this, would it be an idea to have one sticky thread on top with this? I remember about a gazillion of threads asking the same thing during the VT, so perhaps it saves a lot of work?

I wonder if there's an official version out there.
