'Shout it out...'

19 Oct 2009
Unknown Caller is a song that insists you join in... now you can. The band's production team are aiming to create a 'global chorus' of people singing the track. Sing up - and send us your video clip.

Here's how it works. Watch the first video below to remind yourself of the melody and timing of the song. Watch the second clip, lower down, to see how one enthusiastic, talented, wannabe crooner made his bid for fame in the Global Chorus.

Then set up your camera and start singing - you can find the words below. You can sing them directly from the clip.

Sing them all. Might be solo. Might be with your friends. Might be an entire choir. Shoot the clip and then email it to us at unknowncallervideo@u2.com. (If the file is over 10megs, post it in Zootopia instead.)

Here's what to do.

Email your video as either a .mov or an .avi file to unknowncallervideo@u2.com and make sure it is no larger than 10 megs. If it is larger than this then follow the directions below.

To post your clip in Zootopia - our U2.com community area make sure you add a tag when you post it, starting with the word 'chorus' - for example, 'Chorus Delhi' or 'Chorus Cardiff'.

Choose one of the sections to sing ... or all of them by following the clip we have posted below, and using the lyrics provided:

Go, shout it out, rise up
Oh, oh
Escape yourself, and gravity
Hear me, cease to speak that I may speak
Shush now
Oh, oh
Force quit and move to trash

Restart and re-boot yourself
You're free to go
Oh, oh
Shout for joy if you get the chance
Password, you, enter here, right now

Oh, oh
You know your name so punch it in
Hear me, cease to speak that I may speak
Shush now
Oh, oh
Then don't move or say a thing

(When you submit your 'Chorus' clip to us, you're giving the team permission to use it in the way their artistic muse dictates - free and gratis - wherever! Who knows where it could end up... )

Watch this to see what we're looking for.
