U218 Milan Footage and Window in the Skies on AOL Music

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.
