The Walkmen Cover U2

In Honor of a Completed Album

Mar 08, 2012 The Walkmen Bookmark and Share

The Walkmen have finished up work on their new album, the follow-up to 2010’s Lisbon. What better way to celebrate than with some very silly U2 covers? Well, that’s the idea anyway. In honor if their hard work, the band posted a melody of U2 covers— “Pride (In the Name of Love),” “With or Without You,” and “Sunday Bloody Sunday.”

Says the band:

“To celebrate the huge amount of hard work that went into it, we’re sharing this embarrassing recording of a spontaneous outburst of frustration that occurred during the very rigorous sessions. It’s our way of blowing off steam I guess. Please forgive us. Producer Phil Ek recorded it on the sly actually. None of us really remembered it until the last day of mixing when Phil—who by that point had also lost his mind—sat down and patiently mixed it.”

Check out the madness here.
