Gavin Friday, Maurice Seezer and Bono have written a song called “Time Enough for Tears” for the upcoming Jim Sheridan film “In America”. Vocalist on the track is Andrea Corr.
Talking to U2log.com Friday explained: “Bono saw the film and was blown away by it. He wanted to work with us and something happened, organically.”
Friday and Seezer have recently completed work on the score for Sheridan’s film. It is their third collaboration with the director, after “In the Name of the Father” and “The Boxer”.
The song has 40’s Cole Porter, Ella Fitzgerald feel to it and is likely to surprise anyone who expects something along the line of the previous collaboration, “In the Name of the Father”.
Friday: “It’s very poetic, very romantic. Very vulnerable and naked. It’s a beautiful song.” The film, “In America”, will premiere next year, April/May at the earliest.
