U2 have released the first track from their 14th studio album. 'You're The Best Thing About Me' features on 'Songs of Experience'. It follows a surprise for fans last week of a performance video for ‘The Blackout’, another track from the upcoming album.
Songs Of Experience is the companion release to 2014’s Songs Of Innocence, the two titles drawing inspiration from a collection of poems, ‘Songs of Innocence and Experience’, by the 18th century English mystic and poet William Blake.
While Songs of Innocence charted the band’s earliest influences and experiences in the late 1970s and early 80s, the new album is a collection of songs in the form of intimate letters to places and people close to the singer’s heart; family, friends, fans, himself.
