    I have been listening to the new U2 album that was given for free on iTunes following Apple's iPhone 6 launch and noticed something on one of the songs. I know that Chris definitely had some input into the production of the album, as he is listed in the credits, but if you listen to the first 30 seconds of "Iris (Hold Me Close)", not only does it sound very Ghost Stories-like, but also it sounds like Chris' voice in the background.

    Unfortunately, I can't find any YouTube links to the song yet but it is available free on iTunes for everyone. What does everyone else think?

    Could only find a full video. Iris starts at 16:15.

    Very interesting, could be true, have to keep a close eye on upcoming U2 interviews, it does a bit similar to Always In My Head but more to their own Ultraviolet

    Here is the link to the U2 forum where I first found it. Quote #92
    http://www.u2interference.com/forums...-217083-7.html


    "It's Chris Martin for sure. I'm close to a couple of Coldplay associated people (I work a few steps away from their London studios) and I had it confirmed today. It was done at Electric Lady studios a while back.

    The beginning and end "'haunting style' backing vocals are him all over. I believe he was also in the room clapping along with the rest on Tuesday night."

    I second this. It is without a second or shimmer of doubt our very own mr. Chris Martin providing oh-ohs and other ambience. Not just in the beginning and end where it's fairly prominent, but sprinkled over the rest of the song too. It's got Chris all over it.

    Iris is my favourite track on the whole album! I did not realise Chris was on it but now that I'm aware I am not suprised. Such purity. LoVe

    Check 2:14 on that Don't Panic from 2003. Sounds similar ?

    the "uuhuh" of that live version is completely different from chris's part in iris


    EDIT

    OOOH now i hear what you guys mean! The "uuh" part at 4:30 of Iris, not the beginning of Iris

    Interesting quote from an album review: "The whole album starts with “woah-oh-oh”s, the lingua franca of stadium rock, a chorus used all too frequently by Coldplay." If she had done a bit of research she'd realize that it reminds her of Coldplay because Chris is on the album.

    I have a hard time telling if the reviewer is dissing Coldplay or not...
    Congratulations! You just managed to read through one of my posts! Give yourself a pat on the back!

    Chris seems to be really outgoing, always trying to work and collaborate with others.

    Playing the drums very badly, and the bass even worse.

    Have you heard the Marvin Gaye cover that he and Bono collaborated on several years ago?

    No, TraceOddity...But what song was it? Was it the famous one that people... Ahem... Did things to?

    And I'm wondering about something. How do you quote people?
