  • U2 Announces New Album “Songs of Surrender”, Shares New Version of “Pride (In The Name Of Love)”

  • Irish rock band announced U2, consisting of Bono, Adam Clayton, The Edge and Larry Mullen Jr., their fifteenth studio album “Songs of Surrender” would be released on March 17, 2023.


    It will feature 40 re-recorded versions of songs from their back catalogue.
    The album follows Bono's memoir “Surrender: 40 Songs, One Story”, which was released in November.
    The band guitarist, The Edge revealed the album in a letter to fans.
    The Edge wrote,“So what happens when a voice develops and experience and maturity give it additional resonance? U2 have been around long enough to know what that is like. It's true for us all, but it's particularly true for Bono.
    The fact is that most of our work was written and recorded when we were a bunch of very young men. Those songs mean something quite different to us now. Some have grown with us. Some we have outgrown. But we have not lost sight of what propelled us to write those songs in the first place. The essence of those songs is still in us, but how to reconnect with that essence when we have moved on, and grown so much?”

    He continued, “Music allows you to time travel and so we started to imagine what it would be like to bring these songs back with us to the present day and give them the benefit or otherwise, of a 21st century re-imagining. What started as an experiment quickly became a personal obsession as so many early U2 songs yielded to a new interpretation.
    Intimacy replaced post-punk urgency. New keys. New chords. New tempos and new lyrics arrived. It turns out that great song is kind of indestructible. Once we surrendered our reverence for the original version each song started to open up to a new authentic voice of this time, of the people we are, and particularly the singer Bono has become.
    I hope you like our new direction.”


  • From the album, the band released a new version of “Pride (In The Name Of Love)”.
    The original version of the song was released as the first single from their fourth studio album The Unforgettable Fire in 1984.
    The song reached No. 3 on the UK Singles chart. The track has since become one of their most popular songs.
    The song was included on The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll list.
