Following the final gig of their 92 stop, 10 trillion dollar, luke-warmly
received PopMart tour this past Saturday in South Africa, Irish techno
converts U2 slipped into Johannesburg’s Downtown Studios for an all night
recording session to cut a new song. Reportedly inspired by visit to the
country, a visit that spurred several of the lads to scope real estate in
Capetown, the song’s title is being kept under wraps, as is its purpose but
knowledge endowed insiders tell muzic.com that the cut will likely be the
band’s contribution to the fittingly mysterious X-Files soundtrack. An
insider tells us the band often records on the road, and did so with this
track in order to meet soundtrack producer Mark Snow’s timeline. Coming
June 20, said soundtrack will feature the Zooropans alongside Foo Fighters,
Beck, Bjork, Fiona Apple with Missy Elliot and other such mega-stars. As of
press time this is all the information we could gather about the South
Africa sessions but we’ll disseminate further 411 just as soon as it hits
our ears.
