As U2 begins their Fall tour, the band shared the release date of their upcoming album, as well as the first single.
After a summer where U2 performed at their first United States music festival in the band’s history whilst at Bonnaroo, they scheduled The Joshua Tree tour, reviving the band’s late 1980s fame. Now, they have their follow up album for 2014’s Songs of Innocence. Songs of Experience is scheduled to release December 1st.
The band shared the first single off the album this week titled “You’re the Best Thing About Me.” In an interview with The New York Times, Bono discussed that this album is his response to the elections that happened in Europe and America this past year. The album will even include a full rendition of Bono’s feature on Kendrick Lamar’s song ‘XXX’.
