New U2 single details @ 02:31 pm

I'm currently feelin: curious curious
I'm currently hearin: Europe Endless - Kraftwerk

From NME.COM...

U2 have covered electro legends KRAFTWERK on their new single, NME.COM. can reveal.

A cover of the German group’s ‘Neon Lights’ will feature on the single ‘Vertigo’, which is out on November 8.

The track is the first single from the band’s as-yet-untitled 11th album. The song was recorded at Hanover Keys studio in Dublin and produced by Steve Lillywhite.

Other B-sides are new song ‘Are You Gonna Wait Forever?’, and a remix of the title track by Jack Knife Lee. The single will come out on two CDs and DVD single, featuring a video for the song.

In related news, U2 fans are trying to work out if a ‘leak’ contains a number of new songs from the group.

Internet fan websites are currently trying to work out the authenticity of two songs, which have been named ‘Love And Peace Or Else’ and ‘Miracle Drug’ and are currently being traded online.

There was no official confirmation on what the songs were when NME.COM went to press.

- Most of us will have heard a snippet of U2's version of Neon Lights, which I find interesting but cringe worthy at the same time. Here's hoping its a much better version. Tho as I said at the time, its one of those tunes that probably shouldn't be covered by anyone.

i agree. kraftwerk hasn't been covered successfully by anyone. remember siouxsie and the banshee's hall of mirrors?

senor coconut did an entire album of kraftwerk songs set to a latin lounge vibe to some degree of satisfaction. it's perfect cocktail party background music.

Um, wait a minute

I thought the Vertigo single was coming out in September, not November 8th...
