Definitive 'Best Of' On The Way

Sixteen of U2's best known songs and two new tracks are on a single 'Best of" CD released next month.

No word on a title for the album yet nor what the track-listing is but the release date is set for November 20th.

Along with 16 of the band's best known songs (start predicting them now!) one of the two new tracks is the band's collaboration with Green Day while the other is a brand new song.

Both were recorded during sessions at London's Abbey Road last month and are produced by Rick Rubin.

Ahead of the new collection, the U2/Green Day version of The Skids' track 'The Saints Are Coming' will be released as a digital download on 30th October and as a CD single on 6th November.

Proceeds from 'The Saints' will benefit Music Rising

The bands' debuted the song live at the re-opening of the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans last Monday. Catch a stream of the live version here where it is also available for US-only download.
