U2 Releases a Great New Single (Who Knew?) Tying in With Big Vegas Residency: Listen to “Atomic City”


With the title “Atomic City,” U2’s new single could have been the music to “Oppenheimer.”

But the new song, the first in a while for U2, has been kind of a stealth release to coincide with the group’s big Las Vegas residency at the Sphere, which was built for them.

The Rolling Stones have so much hoopla and PR about their new songs and album. But this launch is a mystery to me.
