U2 Drops New Song 'The Blackout', Tease Upcoming Album

U2- The Blackout

The song, apparently recorded live, is less-polished and rowdier than the band's recent material, although it has a poppy chorus that may bear the fingerprints of OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder, with whom the band has collaborated recently. It actually began with the band sending fans mysterious letters last week, which alluded to a new song called "The Blackout".

U2 previously teased its 14th studio album with performances of "The Little Things That Give You Away" during encores of several dates on The Joshua Tree Tour 2017 and on Jimmy Kimmel Live - but not the Miami show, which bracketed the 30th anniversary performance of "The Joshua Tree" album with hits.

Songs Of Experience - its title a reference to a collection of poems by William Blake - is a sequel to 2014's Songs Of Innocence, which reflected heavily on frontman Bono's childhood in suburban Dublin.

Meanwhile, U2's announced that the first single from Songs of Experience, a tune titled "You're the Best Thing About Me", will be released Wednesday, September 6. "So we've got some ways to narrow it down, but we're in good shape". One of them, "The Blackout", started streaming today.
