U2 singer Bono spent his fifth Christmas Eve in a row busking on Grafton Street in Dublin, Ireland, joined by musician Glen Hansard. According to Stereogum, Bono and Hansard surprised shoppers on Tuesday night (December 24th) by singing Christmas songs to raise money for homelessness. Video has surfaced online of the pair singing "O Come All Ye Faithful" and the British act Slade's "Merry Christmas Everybody."
U2 recently released a new song called "Ordinary Love" as part of the soundtrack of Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom, the new movie about the recently deceased South African leader.
The track, which could earn the band an Oscar nomination for Best Original Song, is possibly from the same sessions that have yielded the new U2 album.
The yet-to-be-titled disc is tentatively scheduled for release in April 2014, with the band reportedly discussing a plan to announce the record with a commercial during the Super Bowl.
The disc will be the quartet's first since 2009's No Line On The Horizon.
