A long-forgotten U2 song has been unearthed for the soundtrack of a new film about the band’s early days.
Street Mission was a track recorded by Bono, The Edge, Larry Mullen, and Adam Clayton in the late 1970’s when they were The Hype.
In the upcoming British film Killing Bono, the track will be performed by the actors playing the Irish rockers.
The comedy, which is based on the lives of the two schoolmates who quit the band that was to become U2, is based on Neil McCormick’s memoirs, I Was Bono’s Doppelganger.
The Chronicles of Narnia star Ben Barnes will portray McCormick in the film, which is set for release in Britain in April.
