An interesting newsbit was posted on U2.com today:

Joshua Tree Demo Revealed

The remastered Joshua Tree features several unreleased demos from The Joshua Tree Sessions. Bono recently added new vocals to one of them, 'Wave of Sorrow’, and this week talked about the inspiration for the song. Watch our exclusive video.

Interviewed in New York, Bono explains that Wave of Sorrow ‘was one of the songs from the Joshua Tree sessions that we never finished… a song that was trying to describe experiences that myself and Ali had when we were working in Ethiopia during the famine.’

The track is one of several rare and previously unreleased cuts which feature on the bonus audio CD, which comes with the deluxe edition of the re-released album.

Is that just the song, or all the audio?

I saw that! Am very excited and have already squeed in my lj. If anyone wants the video or the mp3, there are links to downloads here in my journal. I've already pre-ordered the deluxe set from Amazon, as well as the vinyl double album. Obsessed? No, just tightly focussed.

I spend most of yesterday squealing and flailing over this.

Two words: BLUE SHADES! (win win win!!!!)

I want that box set soooo badly. I just gotta figure out where the money's coming from to get it. LOL

I couldn't get the video to play, is it just me? :/  For some reason it just says "Buffering... 17%" and doesn't seem to be doing anything. And downloading the file didn't help as I have nothing to play it with.

Thank you - that didn't come up when I searched YouTube before!
Alas, it doesn't seem to play there either - maybe my connection is being screwy today. :/  I'll have to try again another time. Oh well, at least I've heard the MP3 now (thanks needleandspoon!)
