Seems to be a follow up from an instagram post of theirs, inspired by Gandhi. I'm not sure what to make of it yet, it's completely out of the blue and not really like anything they've done before

Damn it already got taken down. Hopefully it reappears somewhere soon.

This appeared on my Release Radar playlist this morning. Pretty run of the mill stuff. All good.

Bono's vocals in it are decent. Song ehhh...And I'll go out on limb saying this is no where near the direction they are going or what the new album will be like.....then again lets hope not!

I like the ethnic touch in the song with the female voices. I believe this is an one off marketing trick connected with the concert in India. Not a bad idea. And the title is a powerful word.

Saw it on iTunes and thought Id pick it up...then I listened to the sample.

I really liked Invisible, and still do, but Im starting to wonder if that track signaled a change that may eventually lead to me losing interest in them.

I rather like it.  I mean it's not fireworks for me, but I have to say Bono sounds very good, and just hearing that beautiful soulful voice during these crappy times felt like a respite to me today. Pointed out to me how much that voice and U2's message has meant to me over the years.
