New U2!

| No Comments

1.24.02 - NME

Bono has teamed up with Scottish soundtrack composer Craig Armstrong to record a new version of the U2 hit 'Stay (Faraway So Close').

The track will feature on 'As If To Nothing', Armstrong's second album due for release on April 1 through Massive Attack's Melankolic Records. 'Stay...' originally appeared on 1993's 'Zooropa'.

The U2 frontman is not the only collaborator to team up with Armstrong, best known for work with Baz Luhrmann on 'Moulin Rouge' and 'Romeo & Juliet'. A raft of strange bedfellows include Evan Dando, popping up on new track 'Wake Up In New York', Mogwai appearing on 'Miracle' and drum 'n' bass pioneer Photek, who crops up on 'Hymn 2'.

Armstrong picked up a Golden Globe on Sunday in LA for work on 'Moulin Rouge'.

The Evan Dando single is released on March 18. Armstrong will be performing a special one-off show on April 7 at London's Barbican. It is unclear at present if any of his big name friends will guest.
