I would bet that must be No Line on the Horizon.

I think it does sound like Bono. If you have read the reviews you would know that their are two versions of this song that U2 are considering for the album. IF in fact this is actually No Line On The Horizon, it could be a different tune.

Paul McGuinness also said recently that U2 would explore all avenues when it comes to promoting this album. Put 2 and 2 together.

Interesting clip/song, however... it doesn't sound anywhere like the current Bono.

It actually sounds like Bono from the late 80's, early 90's  :D

Unless he has somehow tweaked his voice??

Speaking to the Boston Herald Lanois said Bono's voice is sounding great and the band have "reinvented" the genre of rock 'n' roll again with the upcoming record.



BTW I am glad this doesn't like the 2000 Bono. The 'Bonos' on the last two albums were not that great. Give me the Achtung Baby/Unforgettable Fire voice.

So this must be the song No Line On The Horizon, and this is Bono practicing it on his acoustic guitar. I'm guessing this will turn out to be the punk version?

I agree.

 Like I posted on the youtube page there is no doubt the words to this song go well their with newly unveiled album cover.

I would say this is a demo or b-side.

It doesn't sound like Bono to me either....not exactly. The only bits that do sound like him to me are at the end of each line, when he carries that vowel note "skyyyyy....alibiiiiiiiies". I listened to this and the 'Wave of Sorrow' clip back and forth, and I don't hear it. The echoes sound U2ish though. Argh. Sounds to me like Bono singing in some sort of accent...or with a cold.

And if it IS them leaking it, which wouldn't surprise me...those cheeky monkeys.

Wish I hadn't listened to it  :-\ I don't have the self-control to NOT listen to any future ones either ....@#%!

I'm very sure this is Bono, remember the comments about him singing as a bird? This shall be the proof. It's fantastic.
