"In my pidgin English, Bono means good egg. He is my big brother and I love him." — photographer Anton Corbijn

LISTEN: New, Official Version of 'Every Breaking Wave'


Universal Music has released a new version of "Every Breaking Wave," which is the second single from the Songs Of Innocence album. You may have heard the song played on Ireland's Today FM Thursday morning (listen here, start at the 7:30 mark), but the U2wanderer.org crew tell us that it was distributed this past Tuesday and other stations may have aired it earlier.

This new track is similar to the acoustic version that U2 played on the SOI promo tour last year, and the vocals are really close to how Bono sang the song in Glasgow and Berlin at the end of that tour, with the final note of the song sung in falsetto and held for several seconds.

In the event that Today FM link above isn't permanent, here are a couple fan uploads -- one from Soundcloud and one from YouTube.
