Says the AOL Music New Blog:

On Nov. 21, U2 will unveil a new song, 'Window in the Skies,' on their upcoming 'U218 Singles,' an eighteen-track compilation album that encompasses the band's storied career. The track, an elegiac, piano-driven number, was produced by Rick Rubin and will be released as a single on Jan. 1.

In addition, 'The Saints are Coming,' U2's collaboration with Green Day, makes its long-player debut on 'U218.' The song, originally done by late-70s Scottish punks the Skids, was perfomed live by the bands at the New Orleans Saints' NFL home-opening game at the Superdome in September. The studio version, also produced by Rubin, was released as a charity single last Monday to aid musicians affected by Hurricane Katrina.

Listen to 'Window' and check out highlights from the CD/DVD version of 'U218' -- a ten-song live set from Milan, recorded during 2005's Vertigo tour -- here. Give a look and listen, and share you thoughts with us below.




Definitely worth checking out.

10 songs? What was wrong with the other songs they played? It's not like they wouldn't fit on a DVD...oi. One step forward, two steps back...

'elegiac'?????? I've heard this song, and that's the last word I'd use. Lennon-esque pop, perhaps. Elegy, less so.

Not my favourite, but I really love Saints, especially the live version without Green Day.
