Was that a new song?

I thought I would ask this question here as well as in my journal.

I was watching/listening to Bono giving his speech in Nebraska tonight for World AIDs Day (great program/speech, btw). At the very end, he grabbed a guitar, walked over to the boom box and adjusted it, said something like 'this was not planned' and then said 'I'd like to introduce you to Larry, Adam and the Edge' and then he said something like 'this is a new song we have been working on with Dave Stewart' and then he started playing a song and all I could really hear was..... STATIC! I think he was saying 'and these are the hands' and so it *could* have been the live version of The Hands that Built America, but I don't know.

Did anyone else hear a clearer version of this song?

someone finally replied in another forum:
The press is claiming that this song is called "American Prayer". The source is the World Herald Bureau, which I'm not familiar with. It's tough to keep up with all of the names of the press organizations when you read as much U2 news as I do.

Bono was interviewed by BBC Radio 1 about his involvement with AIDS
charities and trip to Africa.

If you would rather listen to Bono's responses, use the link below,
but you will need to have RealPlayer installed:

Bono and Larry

I loved the bit where they showed the progression of U2 performing "I Will Follow" through the years up to Elevation. A piece of editing genius!

Words cannot describe how much I admire that man.
