U2 has posted a new, acoustic version of a song that appeared on  No Line On The Horizon (2009) in tribute to Nelson Mandela.  Bono, who came to know Mandela well in the years years following the apartheid fighter's release after 27 years as a prisoner of the former regime, wrote after his passing, 'It was as if he was born to teach the age a lesson in humility, in humor and above all else in patience', and said that, because he confronted hatred with such determination but was equally committed to non-violence and forgiveness, Mandela '...played with the highest stakes'.
