This was the first release by U2 in the 2000s. The promotional
version was released to radio on February 8, 2000, to promote the movie
"The Million Dollar Hotel". The movie itself had been co-written
by Bono, and was a project he also makes a brief cameo appearance in.
The song was written by Salman Rushdie for his book, "The Ground Beneath
Her Feet". U2 recorded the song for possible inclusion for their album
due in the fall of 2000, but the song was given to the soundtrack album
instead. It would still appear on All That You Can't Leave Behind
as a bonus track in Europe, and Japan.
The Ground Beneath Her Feet was released as a promotional single only.
The accompanying video that was shot got very little airplay. Two versions
of the promo were released, on in the UK and one in North America.
Only the UK version featured the multimedia trailer for the movie.
