U2 are apparently set to release a new single on the 21st of October.
At the moment, it’s unclear what the title of the song is going to be but the safe money is on the much talked about new song, ‘The Hands That Built America’, which has been heard on U2’s page http://www.u2.com and appears on the soundtrack to Martin Scorcese’s new film, ‘Gangs Of New York’.
The single is set to appear around a month before their second greatest hits collection arrives on the 18th of November. ‘Best Of 1990 – 2001’ will feature all of Bono and company’s singles from that period, such as ‘Even Better Than The Real Thing’, ‘One’, ‘The Fly’ and more.
Two DVDs are set to follow the release, one featuring the videos of their hits and the other featuring their gig at Slane Castle last year.
