VIDEO: U2 record at Third Man Records in Nashville

U2 recorded a live, stripped-down performance of their current single, "Love is Bigger Than Anything In Its Way", at Jack White’s Third Man Records headquarters in Nashville, TN on May 27, and video from the session is streaming online.

The Sunday night visit also saw the group record “Red Flag Day”, a track from 2017’s “Songs Of Experience.”

U2 stopped by the studio the night after they played in town at the city’s Bridgestone Arena as part of their current Experience + Innocence tour, which opened in Tulsa, OK on May 2.

“’When you think you’re done, you’ve just begun…’ Down at Jack White’s @thirdmanrecords in Nashville, recording a live version of ‘Love is bigger than anything in its way…,” posted the band on Facebook. “Special limited edition vinyl coming soon. Thank you Nashville.”

"It's really great being in Nashville," said Bono just after recording. "People are really good to us. And then [Third Man Records] is such a temple, you know? To music."

The North American leg of the Experience + Innocence Tour wraps up in Uncasville, CT on July 3, following which U2 will play European dates starting in Berlin, Germany on August 31.
