Being the 14th album of rock veterans U2, Songs of Experience is aptly named. Produced by Jacknife Lee and Ryan Tedder, the album serves as a collection of intimate letters to places and people near and dear to Bono’s heart after he received advice to “write as if you’re dead.” The band have previously released a handful of those letters as singles: “The Blackout,” “You’re The Best Thing About Me,” “American Soul” and “Get Out of Your Own Way.”
Now, the entire album is available for streaming, which you can do via Spotify below or via Apple Music here. The band are embarking on a tour next spring to support the album—see those dates here. You’ll find a U2 performance from the Paste Cloud below, as well.
