A clip of 'Hands That Built America' posted online...

U2 have posted a clip from new track ‘HANDS THAT BUILT AMERICA’ online.

The 30-second video clip sees the band in the studio working through the song – with Bono on vocals and guitar and guitarist The Edge playing keyboard. The track recalls hits ‘One’ and ‘Stay (Faraway So Close)’ rather than more up and edgier tunes of recent album ‘Elevation’. To go to the band’s official website , click here.

The song will feature in new, long-awaited Martin Scorsese film ‘Gangs Of New York’, his feature about rival Irish gangs in turn of the century New York. The film stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Daniel Day Lewis and Cameron Diaz.

U2 premiered the track via a satellite link-up to some 15,000 delegates at Robert De Niro’s Tribeca Film Festival in New York during March.
