U2 Go Home: Live From Slane Castle Ireland (2007)

Note: U2 has released different versions of most singles in different countries. We are not showing every cover image in this space, just one that's representative of each release.

"New Year's Day" (live from Slane)

"When I hear 'New Year's Day' on the radio, I can't help thinking, 'What a great song. What happened to the drum part?' It's so uneventful and straight. With a little more time spent on that song, I might have been able to come up with something more inventive. I remember once sitting somewhere and the song came on and I overheard two guys talking (obviously drummers), saying, 'Those drums are so boring, duh-duh-duh-duh." - Larry, U2 By U2 2006

Yeah yeah

All is quiet on New Year's Day
A world in white gets underway
I want to be with you
Be with you night and day
Nothing changes on New Year's Day
On New Year's Day

I will be with you again
I will be with you again

Under a blood-red sky
A crowd has gathered in black and white
Arms entwined like a chosen few,
The newspapers says it's true
It's true, it's true
And we can break through,
Though torn in two, we can be one

I will begin again
I, I will begin again

Maybe just once, just once
Close your eyes and imagine it's Jason McActeer

I will be with you again
I will be with you again
I will be with you again
I will be with you again
Again
