In 2014, U2 gave us Songs of Innocence, but in 2017, the iconic rock band is giving us Songs of Experience (their 14th studio album) -- and the first official single "You're The Best Thing About Me" has officially arrived.
"You're The Best Thing About Me" follows "The Blackout," which is also set to be featured on Songs of Experience that the band shared last week as a gift to fans.
According to U2's website Songs of Experience is Song of Innocence's companion, and the album titles were inspired by a collection of poems, 'Songs of Innocence and Experience,' by the 18th century English mystic and poet William Blake.
The band's site also says that this 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." And, in fact, the cover art of their new single, "You're The Best Thing About Me," features an image of The Edge's daughter Sian.
A release date for Songs of Experience is expected to be announced soon. But for now, listen to its first single "You're The Best Thing About Me" above!
