U2 reveal an extract from their forthcoming album

U2 Sets Sept. 6th for New Single, New Album “Songs of Experience” Coming Soon

U2 have unveiled a new song, The Blackout, as well as release details of an official single release and album. From upcoming album "Songs of Experience, '" the post reads.

"'The Blackout', just for you". However, while it's the first song fans will be hearing from the Dublin quartet's forthcoming album Songs Of Experience, which is reportedly due for release on 1 December 2017, it's not the record's lead single.

The band on Tuesday teased the new song on social media, writing that they would both be sharing the cut as well as details on the forthcoming lead single, "You're the Best Thing About Me", which will drop on September 6.

"#U2TheBlackout #U2SongsofExperience "In the darkness where we learn to see".


Songs of Experience was originally set to be released a year ago, but they postponed due to the rather unsteady state of the world leading up to and following the US Election.

"Once the election had happened we didn't want to put out a record without having some time to evaluate what was going on and what was behind the outcome", bassist Adam Clayton told Variety in June.

According to Swift's publicity team at Rogers & Cowan, "Look What You Made Me Do", from her "Reputation" album that is due November 10, had the biggest debut of any video in YouTube history. "["Songs of Experience"] has been ready to go for awhile, because it didn't require a lot of surgery, so to speak - it was a little bit of cosmetic surgery". The band kicks off the second North American leg of its Joshua Tree Tour this Sunday in Detroit.
