U2, 'Soon' 7-inch single

Fans who shelled out big cash for the just-issued mega-deluxe edition of U2’s new “U2 360° at the Rose Bowl” concert DVD received a nice bonus: a red-vinyl 7-inch single featuring the previously unreleased song “Soon,” a 2-minute track left over from the No Line on the Horizon sessions (hear it below).

Anyone who caught one of the 360° Tour shows last year might remember the tune as the band’s intro music; it was called “Kingdom of Your Love” at the time. The song — which U2.com also is streaming for paying members for the next two days — was recorded in 2008, and the music and lyrics are credited to U2, Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois.

You can hear the song — which is the same vein as the more experimental stuff on the album, like “FEZ-Being Born” or “Cedars of Lebanon” — via the embedded clip below.
