Bono and Gavin Friday co-pen 'Time Enough For Tears' for the new Jim Sheridan movie
Following on from last year's Moulin Rouge soundtrack collaboration, Bono has joined Gavin Friday and Maurice Seezer in writing a song for the new Jim Sheridan movie, In America.
Explaining how 'Time Enough For Tears' came about, Friday says: "Bono saw the film and was blown away by it. He wanted to work with us and something happened, organically."
According to Gav, the song has a touch of the Cole Porters about it.
"It's very poetic, very romantic. It's got that 'You take away the sun' beauty and nakedness."
With the track "written from a girl's perspective", Friday says that they've asked Andrea Corr to handle vocal duties. As for the film, that'll be premiering here next April or May.
