Description

Music video by U2 performing Elevation.

"Elevation" is the third track and third single release from U2's 2000 album, All That You Can't Leave Behind. It was also the band's second number one single in the Netherlands, and in 2002, "Elevation" won the Grammy Award for Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal. The song lent its namesake to the band's Elevation Tour.

"Elevation" started with a guitar sound that the Edge got with a vintage pedal that Daniel Lanois had brought to the sessions. Afterwards, the Edge hit on a guitar part and programmed a quick beat box rhythm and the band started playing against it, and Bono improvized.  The Edge stated that "Elevation" was a light relief in a heavy sequence of songs, unlike "Stuck in a Moment You Can't Get Out Of", "Kite" and "Walk On" that "are farewell songs of one kind of another."

The music video for "Elevation" was directed by Joseph Kahn and is one of the most expensive music videos ever filmed. It is set around Lara Croft along with Bono and a rescue of the Edge from his "evil twin brother" (the Edge has been inserted into footage from Lara Croft: Tomb Raider).
