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

I don't think it sounds like Bono.

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?

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 KNOW! How can these folks even claim to be U2 fans? Look at the cover art. Listen to the words. This will be a commercial for the album.

Some people are going to be really disappointed when this album finally does come out. I for one am ready for the departure from the last two albums. I have listened to these guys for over 20 years and was about ready to leave them out too dry on their last release. Thanks God they have changed!

I mean, the lyrics are amazing, his songwriting looks like its been improved a lot, his voice is phenomenal. But i'll try to keep my distance because you never know, he could be a fake Bono.

Is this thread an elaborate prank? It sounded like a terrible impersonation of Bono, at best. In fact, if I had heard this clip in any other context, Bono wouldn't even spring to mind.

If I'm wrong, you guys can bump this thread and rub it in my face, but that was someone else.

I hope this is real, cause it would seem Bono remembered how to write lyrics, and some how defied age and actually got a better voice then 5 years ago.  I would be very pleasantly surprised if the was real, which I don't think it is.

Post by: Yukona [The League of Extraordinary Bonopeople] on January 16, 2009, 11:07:17 PM
The lyrics certainly do seem to fit "No Line", but I don't think it could possibly be Bono. There's a certain tenor to his voice now ever since he started smoking in the 90s that the clip doesn't have. Methinks its one of producers maybe?

And for some reason, it reminds me of Hawkmoon.
Title: Re: Another U2 youtube soundclip....Is this Bono?
Post by: edgefan89 on January 16, 2009, 11:28:20 PM
While the lyrics are very bono-esque, i think it sounds like late 80s early 90s bono.

Furthermore, the guitar is too out of tune for this to be on the finished product

It could easily be someone who has heard the clips from outside the beach house and deciphered some of the lyrics and decided to post their own version on youtube with acoustic guitar. To me it just doesn't sound like Bono at all. But we'll see in a little while I suppose.
The snippet of Boots has got me ultra-excited. Hope there's more of the same tenacity and attitude on the complete album.

Post by: soloyan on January 17, 2009, 01:00:43 AM
It sounds a bit like Bono...but it sounds more like someone imitating Bono. I think the general singing is allright but the tone is not quite Bono's range.

Remember this tune on the Salomé outtakes, "take today" ? And the demo for "the fly" "Ultra Violet" & "lady with the spinning head", very few people noticed the The Edge's voice was almost everywhere. And we knew it was U2 !

I also know of a U2 fan that once came up to me with that strange CD he had bought, very excited : "these are U2's demos and stuff, unbelievable". Yeah...except it was some random singer with synthetizers & drum machines calling himself Devil of Harlem. It was even written on the cover.

People see & hear what they want to see & hear.

But...you know...I've been wrong before.

i agree soloyan. people are hearing what they want to hear.You think they'd have learned by now with all these fake leaks.

its not bono's voice. its a GOOD impersonator.

and how do people think his voice magically got 20 years younger since 5 years ago.

people are prepared to jump on anything and claim it as new u2 at this stage.

Title: Re: Another U2 youtube soundclip....Is this Bono?
Post by: u2009 on January 17, 2009, 05:10:34 AM
All of these fake leaks? I havent heard one faked leak. If you are speaking about the tracks that were taped outside of Bono's beach-house and believe those tracks are fakes then you might want to get your head examined.

Are you 100% sure that this isnt Bono? Unless this is Ali in disguise I highly doubt that you know the intricacies of his voice. All of you people are suddenly vocal experts now!? HA!  :D

Here is your homework assignment kiddies. Go and dissect every single U2 song that exists. From bootlegs to albums to b-sides. Look for the words "sky", "alibis", "cries", "lies", "sighs", "goodbyes"... etc.

Yeah...I also  hear that those Bono "impersonators" are hitting the Vegas streets these days. All decked out in the Fly leathers with fly goggles, crooning their way into the hearts of everyday people! In my life I have never heard a man who has the vocal range of Bono.

Sure this could be a hoax, I dont doubt that at all. It is possible that the singer is actually Andy Kaufman making his way back from the dead tour in honor of his new found love, Bono. Actually I wouldn't mind at all if that were the case, cos I love me some Andy.

I'm actually kind of on the fence about this. On the one hand, the voice sounds great, on the other I don't hear the experimental stuff. What about the lyrics, though? Does anyone have any info on what influences the new album will have lyric-wise? That might be a key to deciphering IF this is a fake. ???

I don't know, they prob just like the attention or fooling people.

But was it said that the other clip was a fake too? (by some 15 yr old dutch guy??) , and that definitely does sound like u2, and sounds good!

What worries me tho is that the submarine / gasoline rhyme was mentioned in a review and so was the wars between nations line, so....

Alright, here are the 3 descriptions we have of "No Line of the Horizon" (that I know of)

ROLLING STONE
The title track's relentless groove began as a group improvisation. "It's very raw and very to the point," says the Edge. "It's like rock & roll 2009."

USA TODAY WRITER
Bono and Edge played this song for a USA Today writer during an in-the-car interview at the Sundance Film Festival. On hearing it, writer Anthony Breznican says "heavy distortion fills the car," and later adds: "The song is rough, weaving between brutal guitar blasts underscoring the mellow title refrain." Edge explains that the song "It came out of a new distortion box that my guitar tech got."

Q MAGAZINE
Began life as a slow-paced Eno-esque, ambient treatment, before being dramatically reworked in the Olympic sessions into an abrasive punk-rock tune, akin to Vertigo, with its "No! Line!" chorus chant. "It's the Buzzcocks meet Bow Wow Wow," reckons Bono.

So basically, I have 4 theories from this (just so we can all get along):
1. It's not Bono or U2 at all
2. Assuming the above descriptions are correct and there are 2 versions of the song, they reverted back to the earlier one
3. The song starts off slow and then starts rocking after about a minute (which might be the best case scenario)
4. It's just something U2 recorded that is nothing more than an idea.

Guys, that is NOT Bono.  It's gotta be a cover/tribute band of some sort.

U2 have released the first single from the band's upcoming album today. "Get On Your Boots" is taken from No Line on the Horizon , the group's first album since the 2004 release of How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb .

"Get On Your Boots" is taken from No Line on the Horizon , the group's first album since the 2004 release of How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb . It received its first airplay on radio this morning.

Although the single had been kept under wraps, a number of songs from the new album emerged on the video-sharing website You Tube, although they were subsequently taken down.

The new single can be heard on the band's website.

Yesterday, U2 joined a number of stars who took part in an opening event at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington to mark Barack Obama’s presidential inauguration.

Although the single had been kept under wraps, a number of songs from the new album emerged on the video-sharing website You Tube, although they were subsequently taken down.

The single had been kept under wraps until today although one fan managed to record several tracks from the new album using his mobile phone when Bono played them too loudly from his beachside home in the village of Eze-sur-Mere, near Nice, during the summer. The songs were placed on the video-sharing website You Tube, but were quickly taken down.
That is is the whole quote , it's old news me thinks.......

The single had been kept under wraps until today although one fan managed to record several tracks from the new album using his mobile phone when Bono played them too loudly from his beachside home in the village of Eze-sur-Mere, near Nice, during the summer. The songs were placed on the video-sharing website You Tube, but were quickly taken down.
That is is the whole quote , it's old news me thinks.......

The story just came out two hours ago online. And that wasnt the quote from the story in the Irish Times...

The reference is to the famous mobile phone saga outside his hoose in Eze many months ago. It is the Irish times article we are talking about?
I know it's a new article but they are talking about last year. Am I reading it wrong?

It's not on the site, but I heard it and judging by Bono's lacklustre voice at the Obama rally today it was not Bono on the video. The voice was too good. LOL

Exactly! If his voice was that good, he'd then sing much better at the Obama rally.



Bono's voice really never was the name ever since entering the POP era and what followed.
And after listening to Get On Your Boots, it still sounds the same, just Bono sang it much like he would sing in POP for example.

Ever heard the demo version of Heaven and Hell?(I believe it was a AB demo track) Much the voice of the JT & AB era, much of the clip in youtube sounded like that.

However, if for some reason it is true, it is very much welcomed!

You cannot argue though, that Bono's voice is much improved from the Vertigo Tour. His voice is sounding in great shape. When's the last time you saw him sing Pride as well as at the Obama inauguration? He is more able to add more style to his vocals these days, rather than blaring it all out.
