New Version of EBW
Original story (u2wanderer.org) by Aaron J. Sams (2015-01-23)
Universal Records is starting to circulate a new version of “Every Breaking Wave” to radio. The version is similar to the performances of the song last October at the EMAs and at the Bambi Awards. It appears to be a new studio recording and is 4:36 in length. The song made it’s debut yesterday on the Today FM radio station in Dublin. Expect that a commercially available version of the recording to be available soon as a single, likely only as a digital release. Original plans had called for the release to be January 12 according to the UK Promo CDR that has been circulating since November. That particular promotional CDR contains the album version of “Every Breaking Wave” with only a slight edit at the end, and not this new version. It is not known if a second promotional CDR will be pressed with this new version.
