U2 fans jazzed to catch the 22-time Grammy winner during their current North American tour leg can check out newly posted video of the band performing an unplugged version of their latest single "Love is Bigger Than Anything in Its Way." The performance was recorded on May 27 in Nashville at Jack White's Third Man Records.
Spin reports on May 30 that the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers streamed the session live via Facebook on Sunday with the entire set slated for a limited vinyl edition release later in 2018. The surprise studio appearance Sunday, followed the band's concert performance on May 26 at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena.
Along with the new single, U2 also performed “Red Flag Day.” Both songs are from the multi-platinum seller's chart-topping studio album Songs of Experience, which dropped Dec. 1, 2017 via Island/Interscope.
In the 3:58 minute clip, Bono and company perform the song live in the cramped confines of the studio, squeezed in beside a retro jukebox along and assorted rock n' roll paraphernalia. Fans can check out the stripped down version of “Love is Bigger Than Anything in Its Way” above.
Songs of Experience features 13 tracks in the standard edition, including the singles “You're the Best Thing About Me” and “Get Out of Your Own Way.” It is available here in CD, digital, vinyl and streaming formats.
U2's launched the North American leg of their Experience + Innocence Tour on May 15 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The trek continues with a two-night stand from June 5 – June 6 in Montreal at Bell Centre and will wrap up July 3 in Uncasville, Connecticut, at Mohegan Sun. The “With or Without You” hitmakers will then head overseas for a summer tour of Europe, which kicks off Aug. 31 in Berlin at Mercedes-Benz Arena.
