The first thing I thought was, 'The edge is playing the keyboard!!!'
It's haunting and beautiful, Bono's voice sounds great, so soft and soulful.

Well -

I like it. I like it alot. I tend to enjoy U2's more atmospheric side [Passengers, Pop ("If God Will Send His Angels", "If You Wear that Velvet Dress", Million Dollar Hotel Sndtrk, etc.)] and this goes over well. Emphasis on the Edge (that guy's voice just keeps getting better and better) and I am predicting that the song will have an explosion of sound such as "with or without you".

On another note, the first thing I thought of when I heard this snippet was David Bowie.

This "clip" is the pure definition of a teaser.

I really want to like it, but I just don't know. Reminds me of the BD and Kite clip. It is too damn short! Oh well, I am greatful that something new is out there no matter how short it is.

Thanks for the heads up!
I liked the clip- it kind of reminds me of TGBHF. I can't wait to hear the whole song!

Thank you Sicy. For some reason my software is sucking ass right now and it will not work!! But if lightening strikes the computer and zaps it into reason I'll try again. Thanks.

I actually had some chills from that clip, and that's a very good sign. Musically, anyway. I do wish U2 would get off their America obsession, though. It might be time for them to think of writing about and touring other parts of the world!

They wrote about it for the movie, the location of which is NY.

Although I agree with scatteroflight┤s last sentence , lets not forget that the song is the music theme for a movie about Irish imigrants going to America and helping to "build" the country as we know it. Personally I can┤t wait to see the movie. And listen to the whole song as well.

Yeaaah I like it, I mean, from what I've heard. It's just too short to get the whole feeling! But yeah, it's really mellow sounding... I'm excited to see how it'll fit into the movie! Edge background vocals! sweeet...

This clip is addicting! Even with the glitches (which I blame on my stupid modem), it's entrancing.

Ok, this is true, so it was a bit dumb of me to say that in that context. However, in general I think my remark still stands! If they're going to write another song dedicated to a city on their next album, Dublin or London or Belfast or Sydney or Vancouver or Toronto or Mexico City or Paris or Tokyo or New Delhi would all be good choices!

No, I totally agree with you- it would be very interesting to see a song written about another city outside of the US, or even written in context of another city (such as the video for Mysterious Ways)

I'd vote for New Delhi
