New U2?

I just came across this, and then saw (on Facebook) that @U2 picked it up also.

Thoughts anyone - is it 2012. I'm skeptical because they (Bono in particular) sound AMAZING!

I actually somewhat believe it, but it doesn't sound all that different. It also seems definitley in an early stage of production.

Did anyone else get reminded of Cedars of Lebanon and COBL when they heard it?

It's definitely Bono singing, and I'm guessing it's from the last few years anyway. Sounds interesting, I really like the more chilled out one. Lyrics seem improvised so sounds like an early demo. I think it's a recent recording.

Sorry, Didn't see Smee's thread. Looks like he beat me to it too, but I think mines in the better place  :D

Hater!

But it does sound incredible.  Bono's vocal delivery in the first one...wow

Let me tell you OAP -IF this is the new U2, they have won me back (they never lost me really, just faded a little). That 60 seconds (of obviously) demo clips to me sound infinitely better than anything on the last three albums (except maybe Grace and Cedars of Lebanon). Bono sounds incredible - a million times better than that awful recent "Angel of Harlem' clip.

I hope its new(er) and I hope its the direction they are heading. Both sound good to me.

Stop the press. We agree.

It is a big IF, that's for sure.  But there's a lot of promise here if it's truly new U2

Cool stuff if it's legit.  My ears and heart hear Bono and crew, but my brain is suspicious  :P

I think it's great stuff. Better than anything I've heard from them recently

Please be real, and please let there be an album sooner rather than later!
