Now that The Walkmen have finished their seventh studio album, they’ve offered fans a little insight into one of their recording sessions. The rock group posted a video to their Facebook page with audio of a U2 cover medley that includes songs like “Pride (In the Name of Love),” “With or Without You” and “Sunday Bloody Sunday.”
The band wrote: “Hi everyone. Our album is finally done and we’re thrilled with it. We can’t wait to get it out there.
“To celebrate the huge amount of hard work that went into it, we’re sharing this embarrassing recording of a spontaneous outburst of frustration that occurred during the very rigorous sessions. It’s our way of blowing off steam I guess. Please forgive us. Producer Phil Ek recorded it on the sly actually.
“None of us really remembered it until the last day of mixing when Phil —who by that point had also lost his mind— sat down and patiently mixed it. Enjoy.”
