8.20.00 - Jam! Music

Comparing it to a Beatles record, "in that every song feels like a single", Bono and U2 have finally unveiled the contents on their upcoming album, "All That You Can't Leave Behind".

Due out in late October, the long-gestating follow-up to "Pop" will contain 11 songs that Bono characterizes as "tunes rather than just ideas. There's no storytelling or artifice," he writes on the band's official website. "It's about the pure joy of playing in a band, with or without an audience."

"All That You Can't Leave Behind" was produced by Daniel Lanois and Brian Eno. Here is the complete track listing:

  • Beautiful Day
  • Elevation
  • Walk On
  • Stuck In A Moment
  • Peace On Earth
  • Kite
  • New York
  • In A Little While
  • Wild Honey
  • When I Look At The World
  • Grace

In addition, a pair of non-album tracks -- "Summer Rain" and "Always" -- will be released in Europe on Oct. 9 as the B-side of the first single, "Beautiful Day". A second CD single of the same song will feature two live tracks, "Discotheque" and "If You Wear That Velvet Dress", both recorded in Mexico City. There's no word yet on North American release plans for the singles.

A video for "Beautiful Day" was shot this month at Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris. It was directed by Jonas Akerlund, best known for his work with Madonna and The Prodigy.
