Last Call: My Favorite U2 Track In Years

The Experience & Innocence tour of 2018 was the first U2 concert tour I've skipped since becoming a fan in 2001. It pains me as a U2 fan, because their last album Songs of Experience was truly awful. Which is to say, I'm not holding out hope for another Achtung Baby-level masterpiece.

But I was pleasantly surprised when I came across a remix of its classic "New Year's Day" by the London group St Francis Hotel. Unlike many remixes, this one maintains the verve and aesthetics of the original trackā€”it sounds right at home as a War outtake. It's pretty great.
