The past two months have been quite busy in the U2 world, after not much going on since the 360 Tour ended over two years ago. First, we got the news that U2’s fifth member Paul McGuinness will no longer be their manager – U2 will now be managed by Live Nation, more specifically Guy Oseary. Then, we heard new U2 music for the first time in almost four years with the release of “Ordinary Love,” the Golden Globe nominated (and most likely Oscar nominated) song from the Nelson Mandela biopic Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.
Now over the weekend, it was reported that U2 have gone back to their original record label Island Records whom they left seven years ago. This has not been confirmed by U2 or Island Records, but several sources have been reporting it. Also this weekend, U2 shared the new video for their new song “Ordinary Love.” And this version actually shows the band! In other U2 news, the great U2 fan documentary U2 BROTHR is a part of the 2014 American Online Film Awards Spring Showcase!
