Unknown song rehearsed in Gothenburg 31st of July

I was standing in queue outside the stadium in Gothenburg and listened to the soundcheck. They played Until the end of the world, No line on the horizon (x2) and Breathe. But they also played another song which I have never heard before. Does anyone know what song that was?

no, i've been trying to find some info on it, but it's very hush hush, no one really knows what they played.

one thing i mentioned the other day is that the band could be trying to work on or finish SOA while on the road. once the 1st leg of the tour is done with, the band could easily go in the studio for a week and lay down some stuff they rehearsed.

they did Zooropa on the road. Some of the title track [if not others, i dunno] was actually recorded during a soundcheck so I wouldn't put it past them.

It would be awesome if they started recording some new songs during soundchecks. It would be very New Adventures in Hi-Fi.

Hopefully we will soon find out more about this mystery song.

And no, I am not laughing at that goofy title, but the fact that - what does this have to do with anything?

Back to the topic, an album like New Adventures in Hi-Fi (recording songs at soundchecks for those who haven't heard it - one of my favourite R.E.M. records) would bring a fresh approach to U2. Maybe they wouldn't overthink things too much this time and release the album quick.

Wouldn't it be more difficult to record an album in stadium soundchecks than arena soundchecks, though?

yep. New Adventures is actually one of my favorite albums of all time, and i'm not a very big REM fan.

With todays technology and digital consoles and AD/DA converters and HD recording systems you could record on the fly so why not

i would love for them to do something like this, im also a fan of New Adventures.

Of course it probably wouldn't be a big mainstream chart topping success ...but who gives a fuck? We shouldn't...as long as the music is good. And the band really shouldn't either.

Does anyone who heard it can at least describe how it sounds like?

New Adventures in Hi-Fi is criminally underrated.

Would be cool if U2 went down that path.

It has a little fat that could have been trimmed and it's a little disjointed but still a great album.

But I have to wonder if this "unknown song" is the new intro to BD? Hopefully we'll find out...

After listening a few times, I have my doubts that the new intro to BD is actually a new song. I think it was purpose-built for BD and that is all

Agreed, it morphs too perfectly with the strings and background BD synths.
