Background Information

This promotional single was released in advance of Daniel Lanois’ album “Shine” which would contain the single. The promotional single was pressed by Anti Records, and was distributed in Europe. The CD itself was distributed by Epitaph in the Netherlands. About a month after the album was released, a commercial single was also released, which was identical to this promo single containing “Falling at Your Feet” and “As Tears Roll By”. The version of “Falling at Your Feet” on this release, the single and the album are identical. The promotional single was released in a generic Anti- card sleeve, most with a sticker on the back which lists contents of the CD and contain a small image of the album cover. This promotional release is a CD-R.

Lanois had worked on the “Million Dollar Hotel” soundtrack with Bono. That soundtrack, released in 2000, contained the song “Falling At Your Feet”, a duet between Lanois and Bono. The original version also had Larry Mullen performing on drums. In 2003 when putting together the “Shine” album, Lanois returned to that song, and reworked it extensively. The original version of the song featured Bono predominantly in the vocal mix in the early verses with Lanois as an echo further back in the mix. The new version released here as a single, as well as on “Shine” reverses this so Lanois is featured more prominently in the mix.

Individual credits for the songs are not listed, nor are they on the album “Shine”. Contributing musicians listed on the project inside the album include Brian Blade, Daryl Johnson, Aaron Embry, Chris Thomas, Malcolm Burn, Brady Blade, Tony Mangurian, Charley Patton and Bono. The recording team listed is Adam Samuels and Jennifer Tipoulow, with Mark Howard and Wayne Lorenz being listed as being responsible for early recordings. The only individual credits available for “Falling at Your Feet” are “Written by Bono & Daniel Lanois, performed by Daniel Lanois with Bono”. The original version on “The Million Dollar Hotel” had been listed as being performed by Bono with Daniel Lanois.
