Experience the life of a Dutch U2 fan. Enjoy!


Songs Of Innocence

Today Songs Of Innocence was deliverd: the deluxe edition and vinyl. I love the acoustic versions, especially Every Breaking Wave and Cedarwood Road. Hopefully the acoustic versions will make the setlist on the next tour.

Time Magazine

I live in a tiny town so it was a huge surprise that the local bookstore had a copy of Time Magazine with the U2 interview and cover. That saves me a lot of postage.

New album: Songs Of Innocence

During an Apple event yesterday U2 - totally unexpected - released a new album: Songs of Innocence. There were a lot of rumours about this event and U2's role but this exceeded all expectations. Everyone with an iTunes account can download the album for free until October 13th. Then U2 will release the physical copy of the album. And there will be another album released soon according to Bono: "If you like Songs of Innocence, stay with us for Songs of Experience. It should be ready soon enough… although I know I’ve said that before…" I cannot wait. Songs of Innocence is an amazing and personal album. My favorites (so far) are: The Miracle (Of Joey Ramone), Cedarwood Road, Iris (Hold Me Close) en Sleep Like A Baby Tonight.

North Side Story

Today I received the present for renewing my U2.com subscription: North Side Story. It is a beautiful book about the early years of U2. And it contains a map of all 'U2 spots'. Great addition to my collection.

Last week U2 released a new single: Invisible, which you could download for free on iTunes. Bank of America paid one dollar to RED for every download. I think this single is awesome. Today the video was released. :-)


Ordinary Love

Finally, a new single by U2: Ordinary Love, written for the movie Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom. I played Ordinary Love numerous times since last night and I love it. Bring on the new album. I cannot wait.

From The Ground Up

Yesterday I received the annual gift from U2.com that goes with renewal of your subscription. It is an official photobook of the U2 360° Tour and it is gorgeous. In the book you will also find a cd 'Edge's picks from U2 360°', bookmarks and photos of the band members. Such a gift is definitely worth renewing your subscription.
