A guitar-heavy, open-road anthem, ‘You’re The Best Thing About Me’ comes with all the stadium-ready anthemics and hallmarks of latter day U2.
The single’s artwork also features a sleeve image by long-time collaborator and Joy Division photographer Anton Corbijn – a photo of The Edge’s daughter Sian Evans, seemingly referencing the covers to their classic albums ‘Boy’ and ‘Best Of’.
The band have been teasing fans of its release by sending them mysterious letters in the post, before unveiling surprise comeback track ‘The Blackout’.
The Irish Sun claimed that ‘Songs Of Experience’ will be released on World AIDS Day (December 1) in partnership with the Bono co-founded AIDS charity (RED). Irish radio DJ Dave Fanning also told the paper that the record was “definitely out this year”, continuing: “What’s great is new songs mean something to U2. They take their new material seriously, in a way that The Rolling Stones don’t.”
