Background and release

Sunday Bloody Sunday-U2 seconds-U2 New Year's Day-U2 like Song.-U2 Drowning Man-U2 Refugee-U2 Two Hearts Beat As One-U2 Red Light-U2 Surrender-U2 40-U2 seconds-U2 like Song.-U2 Refugee-U2 Two Hearts Beat As One-U2 War was the third studio Album released by U2. After working with U2 on Boy and October, Steve Lillywhite told the band he wasnt interested in producing a third Album For Band. This led to a period where U2 tried out a number of producers. The first trial was with Producer Sandy Perlman between November 22 and 24 1981. These were first recording sessions With New Album in mind. They work on a single 3-minute track at Kingdom Sound on Long Island. The song was described as a psychotic rockabilly song by the band. The band would convince Lillywhite to return to work on some ideas in February 1982, which resulted in the single Celebration and B-Side Trash Trampoline, and Party Girl. But he was still adamant about not working with the band on the next album. It is possible that the celebration was a continuation of those earlier sessions with Perlman, but there is no confirmation of this. In March of 1982, further studio Time was book, This Time With Producer Jimmy Destri, probably best known for his work with Blondie. Sessions With Destri saw the band working on piano, and one full length Song was record, Be There, which has never been release. These sessions also form the start of ideas for Songs Endless Deep and Unforgettable Fire which would be fleshed out later in life. Destri list title of finish song as Being There so it is quite possible it go through a number of iterations in the studio. Regardless, the band were not happy with the results and the search continue. The band contacted others, such as Rhet Davies, and even reached out to Brian Eno, who at the time just didnt see himself working With Rock Band. U2 started work in earnest on recordings For War just prior to Bono and Alis marriage in late August, 1982. These initial sessions were done by Producer Bill Whelan, and yielded two songs, which were tipped to Hot Press as Being first single from New Album, and B-Side. We know one of those songs was Refugee As It appears in War and contain producing credit to Whelan. Recording Take break while Bono and Ali honeymoon in Jamaica, although Bono continued to work on lyrics throughout the honeymoon. Once they returned to Dublin, band reentered studio at Windmill Lane, and had to convince Steve Lillywhite to once again come on as producer. Recording of Album With Lillywhite continues through August, September and October. 40 was the last song record, and it was recorded as U2 was being thrown out of the studio on the last day they had book.

Promotion

Without saying word, Michael Jackson dashed to his black limousine in Harlem yesterday after meeting of his newly formed coalition to further the rights of black musicians. He had been expected to address reporters, but his silence raised even more questions about his recent behavior, particularly toward Thomas D. Mottola, chief executive of Sony Music Group. Mr. Jackson has depicted him as devil, waving photographs of Mr. Mottola scrawling with horns and pitchfork at a Manhattan rally on Saturday. Mr. Jackson contended that the music business is racist. But it is widely believed in the industry that his new passion for struggling black artists is an attempt to extract concessions out of Mr. Mottola. Colleagues and industry executives say they believe that he was pressuring Sony to renegotiate certain aspects of his contract. The company is not likely to agree because it has not yet recouped the 50 million it paid to make and market Mr. Jackson's most recent album, 'Invincible. ' But it has sold lackluster two million copies in the United States, leading Mr. Jackson to assert that Sony did not do enough to promote it, notion Sony has deny. Roots of brouhaha between Mr. Jackson and Mr. Mottola began earlier this year, people involve say, when Mr. Jackson and his lawyer, John Branca, started negotiating with Sony over how Mr. Jackson could get out of his contract. Mr. Sharpton said he wanted to help Mr. Jackson and called lawyer Johnnie Cochran, who defended O. J. Simpson. Mr. Sharpton said he and Mr. Cochran met with Mr. Branca several times in May to discuss their strategy. Mr. Sharpton agreed that exposure would help him and his National Action Network. 'The fact of the matter is if that is part of the reward, so what? ' he say. Mr. Branca did not return repeated phone calls to his office. On June 5, Mr. Sharpton held a news conference in New York City to announce a new coalition for black artists. Mr. Sharpton read a statement from Mr. Jackson. But what has surprised many in the industry is how quickly the fight between Mr. Jackson and Mr. Mottola turned nasty. At an appearance last month in London, Mr. Jackson first attacked Mr. Mottola. Sony has denied it has done anything wrong. 'In launching an unfounded and unwarranted attack on this man's reputation, Mr. Jackson has committed a serious abuse of power that comes with celebrity, ' the representative say. Two people close to Mr. Jackson say he was preparing to sue Sony. 'If you look ahead to what could happen, it's in the courtroom, ' one of these people say. 'Then it gets interesting. '
