U2 live CD features tracks from SA

Cape Town - Irish Rock band U2's new album titled U22 has finally been delivered to members of the group's fan club.

Two of the songs, Mysterious Ways and I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For, were recorded during the band's 2011 performances in Cape Town and Johannesburg respectively.

The latter song features local jazz musician Hugh Masekela performing on stage with the rest of the band.

The songs form part of a two-CD collection of 22 live tracks from various shows on U2's 360° tour held last year and is being distributed to members of the fan club only.

The tracklisting was decided by votes cast by fans.

One of the bloggers on atu2Blog.com, Calhouns, said: "Like U2.com said a week ago, my U22 was on its way. It arrived this afternoon. I didn't see how it came, it was just on the porch when I went to get the regular old mail."

The group's website atu2.com previously reported that members of the fan club would get an e-mail letting them know that the album had been posted to their various addresses at the end of May.
