OTHER NOTES
In 2002 Bono began work on writing a song with Joe Strummer of the Clash and David A. Stewart of the Eurythmics.  This song was titled "46664 (Long Walk to Freedom)".  Unfortunately Joe Strummer passed away before the song was recorded, but the song was recorded regardless with Bono lending vocals to the track.

The song itself was named after Nelson Mandela's prison number while imprisoned in a South African prison.  The number was also the name of a campaign which Mandela helped to organize who's mission was to bring information about the growing problem of AIDS in Africa to a wider audience.

The song "46664" was released in two ways.  One could call a special country specific number to donate to the 46664 campaign and then you could listen to the song through the phone as often as you wanted during that call.  The other way was through a digital download at the 46664 site in .  This download features a poor quality transfer and suffers from several audible "clicks" during the song.  It was made available in Windows Media format (.wma) with strong digital rights management built into the track limiting the number of times it could be copied or burned.  Many users trying to download the track reported issues downloading and were unable to obtain the track in this manner.

The song "46664" also became the centerpiece of a huge concert in South Africa on World AIDS Day in 2003.  Bono and the Edge attended this concert performing several songs.  An audio release of this concert exists ( Disc 1 / Disc 2 / Disc 3 ).  

The artwork shown above was taken from the 46664 website at the time of the download.  The track itself did not come with an embedded cover image.
