The sound quality isn't great but this does sound like it has the potential to be another MOS or BAD.

Don't get me too excited! MoS is easily one of the best songs they've done the last 20 years. I would be incredibly excited if this new song ends up living up to that.

I second that. Anything remotely close to MOS would be very, very exciting

They could just be rehearsing it for their own purposes, maybe seeing how it would sound live for the next tour.  I really don't think we will get new songs on this tour.
I would not think they would want to get the song out before the studio version is officially out.  They have never done this before. 
If they do play this song I highly doubt it will end up on SOE.  It could just be a leftover that didn't make the final cut on the album but could end up being a b-side or bonus track.
Just like when they played Mercy and North Star on 360, these are songs that never ended up on any U2 studio album.

Musically I'm sure it will be fine and very u2 by numbers. The vocal melody doesn't seem up to much imho.

This song sounds very U2. Very. But happens that I actually like U2, so... huh.

Seriously now, I do think this song can be exciting. Nothing new or impressive for now, but a good use of the tricks they've already learned. I especially like how the instrumentation variates from a more balladlike song to something more epic. It's like 00's U2 all over again, but spiced with a little TUF.

It probably won't be my favourite from SOE, but if they release it as a single, it will probably be my favourite single of theirs in a long long time (not something difficult, I know).

Outstanding. Already one of my top 10 U2 songs. Very Mercy. Hope they keep it as raw on the album. Very moving when the guitar kicks in and waves over Bono. A moment of magic

First thing that popped into my head too, very Mercy.

Wow. The wait for SoE is going to be so worth it, if Little Things is any indication. Fantastic song.

oooh, I love how the song builds and builds, ascending.... songs of ascension!

"The end is here..." God I hope not.
