U2 ‘Best Of’ on the way

And it contains new songs

U2 are set to release a new ‘Best Of’ compilation on November 20.

The album will contain two new songs produced by Johnny Cash collaborator Rick Rubin.

One of these will be the band’s recent collaboration with Green Day, ’The Saints Are Coming’.

As previously reported, the song is a covered from Scottish group The Skids, and will be released as a digital download on October 30. The proceeds of this will benefit Hurricane Katrina charity Music Rising.

Otherwise the collection will feature 16 “of the band’s best-known songs”, according to U2.com.

The band previously released the compilations ’The Best of 1980-1990’ in 1998 and ’The Best of 1990-2000’ in 2002.

The tracklisting of the new ‘Best Of’ is yet to be confirmed, though the band have encouraged fans to “start predicting now”.
