news Irish fans get a bonus U2 track...
Fans of the Irish supergroup U2 have been given an added bonus track due out this week. Their new album "All that You Can't Leave behind" is due out in Europe this week and fans in Ireland and the UK are to get the song "The Ground Beneath Her Feet" on album's bought here. The song was written by author Salman Rushdie who is a close friend of singer Bono and is thanked on the album by the star.
The Irish and UK album consists of 12 songs where as the released album around the rest of the world only has 11 songs.
The album was recorded in Dublin by the band and produced by Daniel Lanois and Brian Eno.
Mick Jagger and his daughter also appear on one of the album's track's Stuck in a Moment with You when they just walked into the studio where the band were recording.
Their contribution has since been removed from the final cut of the track as U2 felt it needed a different direction.
Bono has also taken time out this week to go to war with rival bubblegum pop bands who can't even play music.
"People are sick to teeth of processed and hyped pop bands. It's crap. They want someone real again and that's where we come in. The tide is turning. Normally people want big rock bands to fall flat but what I'm picking up is that they want us to to do well because we are flying the flag for bands that can really play."
Bono went on to say "the state of music in Ireland and Britain hasn't been very healthy recently but you can tell it's changing by the chart positions of pop acts. They are slipping.
We went to No1 which surprised me. We were No1 in the singles chart and Radiohead were No1 in the album chart. That tells me things are changing for the better. Fans are getting wiser I mean who are STEPS?"
The band also spoke of next years tour confirmed what ShowBizIreland.com told you months ago.
"We are starting off in the states but will be back in Ireland a show at Slane Castle."
The band were taking to the Sun newspaper.
