Haven’t run across this one before: It’s a promo of U2 performing along to what sounds like the album version of “New Year’s Day” in the studio, circa 1983. Apparently it was part of a French TV documentary on the band — and perhaps it was filmed as an alternate version to the famous snow-filled video. Make sure you watch until the end to hear Bono declare: “U2. It’s just a number and a letter.”

Anyway, seems appropriate to post today. Happy New Year, everyone.
