Audio of a possible New U2 song, ‘Song For Someone’

A New Beach Clip Audio posted, and a History of U2 blaring new material

Here it happens again, a U2 fan (Paul) in Eze recorded this from the beach on the coast in southern France. The song is hard to hear but you will hear the crashing waves in the background (most times the crashing waves are in the foreground) with the song being fain. You got to turn it up and listen close, but in some spots, like 2:30 mins into the recording you can make out a good portion of the song. Seems U2 loves to blare new unreleased songs in Eze for all to record.

Check it out on soundcloud:

We have it here for download.


Beach clip past? Yes there is a history of fans making recordings from U2 blasting tunes, like this one found in the archives  from July 2006.

July 2006:


Here is the full 18 minutes that include all ‘Known’ songs. Not sure of the names other than they sound kinda like some mixes from ATYCLB. Quality is not very good, but what can you expect form a hand held recorder. Thanks to our French friends for capturing this for the world!
