Upcoming rock 'n roll comedy Killing Bono's official soundtrack is set for release on March 28.

The film, directed by Nick Hamm, follows former Hot Press writer Neil McCormick's attempts to make it as a rock star, whilst his schoolfriend Bono becomes an international icon. It will be released in the UK and Ireland, by Paramount Pictures on April 1.

The Killing Bono OST includes the exclusive and previously unreleased 'Street Mission' by The Hype (U2's first incarnation). It also features the U2 classic 'I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For,' from 1987's The Joshua Tree.

Grammy-nominated Northern Irish songwriter Joe Echo has contributed eight new songs to the album. They are performed and recorded by the film's stars, Ben Barnes (Chronicles of Narnia), Robert Sheehan (Misfits) and Martin McCann (Clash Of The Titans), who play brothers Neil and Ivan McCormick, and Bono resepectively.
