46664 (Long Walk to Freedom): Written by Strummer, Hewson, Stewart.  Performed by Bono, The Edge, David A. Stewart, Abdel Wright, and Youssou N'Dour.
In late 2002 Bono worked with Joe Strummer of the Clash and David A. Stewart on a song titled after Nelson Mandela's Prision Number '46664'.  This song was to be used to bring attention to the devestation that AIDS and HIV was creating in Africa.  Joe Strummer, however, passed away before the completion of the song and it was left up to Bono and David Stewart to finish the song.

Originally planned for early 2003, a concert was planned in South Africa to launch the 46664 campaign.  The concert was pushed back and rescheduled for November 29th, 2003 to coincide with World AIDS day.  The concert was streamed live on the internet, and was later televised around the world.

It is '46664 (Long Walk to Freedom)' which is the featured track with U2 involvment on this disc, and Bono and the Edge are joined by others in the performance of this track.

The entire concert was released on CD, spread over three discs.  These discs were sold separately to hopefully bring in buyers who would only be interested in one disc and wouldn't pay for a three disc set.  Contributions by Bono and the Edge are spread out over all three released discs.  The other two discs capturing this live event are Part I: African Prayer and Part III: Amandla.  There was also a 2 disc DVD released of the entire concert.

  • There are two other parts to this CD which are sold separately.  These are Part I: African Prayer and Part III: Amandla
  • Bono and the Edge have worked with David A Stewart on the soundtrack for Cookie's Fortune.
  • David A Stewart's multimedia web project "Sly-Fy" featured clips of Bono and the Edge, but there was no inclusion of these U2 clips on the accompanying recording.
  • David A Stewart is thanked for early inspiration on the song "Walk On" on the All That You Can't Leave Behind album.
  • David A Stewart performed "Walk On" with U2 for the September 11 tribute, which was released as the album America: A Tribute to Heroes.
  • David A Stewart also recorded "46664" in studio with Bono.  This song to date has only been released on the internet and by phone.  There has not been a commercial release.
