Yep, you heard it right. The Walkmen have not only announced that their new album is finished, they have also shared with us a bizarro U2 Medley they recorded during the albums recording sessions. The band tears through U2 classics “Pride In the Name of Love”, “With or Without You”, & “Sunday Bloody Sunday”.
The band shared the following information about the new album, and the above Medley:
Hi everyone. Our album is finally done and we’re thrilled with it. We can’t wait to get it out there.
To celebrate the huge amount of hard work that went into it, we’re sharing this embarrassing recording of a spontaneous outburst of frustration that occurred during the very rigorous sessions. It’s our way of blowing off steam I guess. Please forgive us. Producer Phil Ek recorded it on the sly actually.
None of us really remembered it until the last day of mixing when Phil–who by that point had also lost his mind–sat down and patiently mixed it. Enjoy.
