A fan posted the above recording on YouTube and titled it "Another New Leaked U2 Jam Session-2013 (10 Reasons to Exist/Songs of Ascent).
It purports to be a recent recording of Bono working with the rest of the group to put together a new album which we have been expecting since 2010, as per The Guardian.
U2's last album, "No Line on the Horizon" came out in 2009 and a companion piece was expected soon after but kept getting put off.
The band considered various projects to work on, such as a dance album with David Guetta and will.i.am and a compilation of meditative pieces titled "Songs of Ascent."
However, they finally decided on "10 Reasons to Exist" which is supposed to be a reference to how the band has managed to stay together despite the passage of time. However, knowing U2, there are probably some deeper existential references tucked in there.
The audio posted on YouTube consists of Bono scatting to guitar which is presumably being played by The Edge and drums kick in three quarters of the way through. It has that raw emotional edge that you often hear in U2's songs.
We really enjoyed this sneak peek into the band's workings as well as hearing something new from Bono, whether it really is recent or taken from a year or two back.
Although we're hoping that the album comes out soon, Bono said, "[We] don't care if it takes ten years...[We] don't care if it never happens again-[we] just want to get it right."© 2013 Fashion & Style.com All rights reserved. Do not reproduce without permission.
