‘You’re The Best Thing About Me’, the first single from the band’s highly anticipated 14th studio album, Songs of Experience, was recently released.
The new single features a sleeve image by Anton Corbijn of The Edge’s daughter Sian Evans. The release of the first single follows a surprise gift to 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.
