And the new songs just keep rolling out. Last night in Coimbra, Portugal, U2 unveiled “Boy Falls From The Sky,” which is one of the songs they wrote for the upcoming Spiderman Musical on Broadway. This marks the 6th new song they’ve busted out on the latest leg of the 360 Tour.
And so far, it’s the best one.
Musically, it’s catchy, upbeat, and undeniably U2. Lyrically, it’s tighter and more focused than the presumed “Songs of Ascent” songs. I actually kind of hope they release these songs as a U2 album in addition to the requisite cast recordings. Of course that assumes the rest of them are as good as this, but whatever.
