Looks like we have our first b-side of the Songs of Innocence era. The Song for Someone single was posted on Spotify yesterday, the same day as the first European stop on the tour. The streaming single contains two versions, the same “Radio Mix” that was previously released to radio, and a live version from San Jose. Neither version has yet appeared on any other streaming or download services. A new promotional video for Song for Someone was released on August 27, directed by Matt Mahurin, who previously directed videos for With or Without You and Love is Blindness. This follows the early July release of a short film featuring the track.
