Last year we drew your attention to 11-year-old Sungha Jung from Korea, fingerpicking his way through With Or Without You – which he also played live at the 2009 Time to Rock festival. This year, he’s tackled One. The arrangement is by Jacques Stotzem. More Sungha Jung video’s on his YouTube channel.
Guy Garvey, lead singer of the British band Elbow, says the band members were all U2 fans. Elbow, who won the 2008 Mercury prize, has recorded U2’s song Running to Standstill for the new War Child album, ‘Heroes’.
Garvey says it was the first song the band ever learnt together:
“We were huge U2 fans… it was the first thing we ever played together as nippers”, said Garvey. “It was too lovely a thing that we’d also covered it many, many moons ago.”
The War Child album ‘Heroes’ will be released on February 16th.
