7.30.02 - Jam! Music

U2 has bolted back into the studio and recorded their brand new single, "Electric Storm".

The single will be released in October and will accompany their forthcoming 17-song "Best of" album in November, according to French U2 fansite U2achtung.com.

The report also said a second new track on the "Best of" release will be "The Hands That Built America", written for Martin Scorsese's long-delayed epic, "Gangs Of New York". The group's official website has post a snippet of the band performing the new song in the studio.

"Electric Storm" will be released to radio on Sept. 16.

Meanwhile, a New York Post report says U2 are lined up to headline a massive concert in New York's Times Square on Sept. 5 - just six days before the September 11 anniversary -- to kick off the National Football League's new season.

The report also says the other top musical acts will perform at the show, which is expected to draw thousands of fans.
