GREEN DAY haben heute auf ihrer Webseite Kund gegeben, dass sie mit U2 zusammen den Song "The Saints Are Coming" aufnehmen werden. Das Original stammt von der schottischen Punk Band THE SKIDS.
Hier GREEN DAY's Statment:
"We were asked by U2 to record the song with them to benefit Music Rising, an organization that replaces instruments musicians lost in Hurricane Katrina's wake. One year later, the devastation is still fresh in our minds, and we'd like to keep it in yours. New Orleans has always been a special city to us, being a hotbed of music and creativity, and it's hard to believe parts of the gulf region still remain devastated. We feel that it's important to continue to raise awareness."
