AT THE MOVIES
*Soundtracking: How does Bono find the time? In addition to touring with U2 for the past two years, he wrote three new songs for In the Name of the Father, the new film by Jim Sheridan (My Left Foot), to be released this month. Sinead O’Connor will sing on one number. Bruce Springsteen, who has never before specifically recorded for a movie, has cut an original tune for Philadelphia, the Jonathan Demme-directed film about AIDS (opening Dec. 22). Neil Young sings the title track. * Revamping: Fleetwood Mac’s back-to-their- roots album (out in mid-1994) is as much a beginning as a reunion. With Stevie Nicks strictly solo, Bekka Bramlett (daughter of legendary R&B singers Delaney and Bonnie Bramlett) will join Christine McVie on lead vocals, and Dave Mason will replace guitarist Billy Burnette (who replaced Lindsey Buckingham). * Reliving: During each of his seven rare California concerts this month, Van Morrison will stage a three-part career retrospective, performing with special guests Brian Kennedy, Junior Wells, and Georgie Fame.
