A U2 song being premiered on the Irish news? What next. Brian Dobson becoming a roadie for Aslan? A Seoige girlband? The All-Ireland Talent Show? Oh wait, that last one is true. Although if the KT Tunstall/Howie Day-aping fiddler is the best talent the country has, I don't know what the future of Ireland holds. He's all style and no substance. Well that's based on the track I heard last night.
Anyhow, U2 are the present of Irish music, and have been for years. And now you can hear snippets of the new album.
You can stream 30 second clips of all the songs on WalMart's page:
