LINER NOTES
New Day (Pop Versions):  Performed by Wyclef Jean and Bono.  Background vocals arranged by Shaun Crawford for the Walker Group.  Recorded at the Toogie Basement, NJ and the Hit Factory, NYC.  Mixed and Mastered at the Hit Factory, NYC.  Engineer:  Andy Grassi.  Assistant Engineers:  Mike McCoy and John Merridith.  Written by W. Jean, Bono, J. Duplessis.
OTHER NOTES
On the fourth of July in 1999 Bono checked out Wyclef Jean's studio in his New Jersey basement.  While there, the idea was broached to take Wyclef's song "New Day" and to re-record it under the title "War Child" with additional vocals by Bono.  The two recorded the song the next day, but by the time it appeared in shops it was still titled "New Day". 

Bono is credited on the cover of the single but he only appears on the "Pop" versions of the track, or in this case, the Pop Acapella, the Pop Main, and the Pop Radio Edit versions.  The Pop Main version is the version that featured on the USA commercial release of the single.
