U2 and Sinead Team Up For The End of Violence Soundtrack

Eels (pictured) and Stipe lay down tracks as well.

The soundtrack to the latest Wim Wenders (Faraway, So

Close) film, The End of Violence, will boast an impressive roster of

new and unreleased material from the likes of U2, R.E.M.'s Michael Stipe and

the Eels, to name a few.

The soundtrack album, slated for release on

September 26, will feature a score by soundtrack vet ( and ace slide guitarist)

Ry Cooder, as well as new songs from the band Spain ("Every Time I Try"),

Medeski, Martin and Wood ("Disrobe"), a U2 and Sinead O'Connor collaboration

called "I'm Not Your Baby" (an unreleased song that was recorded for the

Pop sessions) and a never-before-released Roy Orbison song ("You May

Feel Me Crying").

Also included will be new works from the Mavericks' Raul

Malo ("Bailare"), Whiskeytown ("Theme for a Trucker"), Tom Waits ("Little Drop

of Poison"), Los Lobos ("Me Estas Matamdo"), the Eels ("Bad News"), DJ Shadow

("Untitled"), and U2 collaborator Howie B ("Don't Even Know She Got One"). In

addition, the album will contain a duet between R.E.M. frontman Stipe and Vic

Chesnutt on a song entitled "Injured Bird" that the two originally penned a few

years ago for folkie Joan Baez, who ended up not recording it.

Plans also

call for a possible contribution from German electronic pioneers Kraftwerk,

their first new material in several years.

The Wenders film, which stars

Bill Pullman, Andie MacDowell and Gabriel Byrne in a tale about the uncovering

of a devious government surveillance plot, will be released in the U.S. in

October.
