U2 will contribute songs for the John Carney musical ‘Sing Street’


Legendary band U2 is working on the new musical film Sing Street with director John Carney, with U2 band members Bono and The Edge contributing music to the film. Sing Street is set in Dublin, Ireland in the 1980s as the recession hits and Schoolboy Cosmo is forced to leave private school due to financial constraints. He is enrolled in a rough public school where he uses music to get through this period. The film is loosely based on the director’s life. Carney was responsible for the 2006 musical Once, while U2 recently won a Golden Globe award for their song “Ordinary Love” from the film Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom. Production on Sing Street begins in September 2014.
