    Just to be fair, it’s actually only the royalties from the song from the New Orleans Superdome, “The Saints Are Coming,” that will go to Music Rising.

    In the spirit of continueing to be fair, lest some may see this as a cash grab, they appear to be under contractual obligation for three best of albums … so this would fulfill that.

    There is definately new material in the works however … so a new album is right around the corner (which in U2 language means 12-18 months). A couple of clips from a beach session by someone with a lousy recorder can be accessed at
