Derek Webb takes to the Streets

Nashville singer-songwriter Derek Webb has crafted a lovely acoustic cover of U2's "Where the Streets Have No Name" for a unique project called "Democracy Vol. 1".

Webb was part of contemporary Christian band Caedmon's Call and left to pursue a solo career. His most recent album, Stockholm Syndrome (2009) caused controversy among the Christian music industry for its explicit lyrics and content.

  1. I agree - this is an awesome cover and an original take on a classic U2 song.

    Here is a video I made using part of this song – hope you enjoy it
