Experience “The Blackout”: U2 premieres new song from upcoming album

ABC/Randy HolmesU2 has premiered a brand-new song called "The Blackout" via a video posted on the band's official Facebook page. The track will be featured on the Irish rockers' upcoming studio album, Songs of Experience. The video, directed by Richie Smyth, features grainy black-and-white footage of U2 performing the song in front of a small crowd in Amsterdam. The tune features mid-tempo verses and a hard-driving, melodic chorus, with lyrics that seem to be critiquing the current volatile political climate in the U.S. "Statues fall, democracy is flat on its back, Jack," Bono sings in one of the verses. "We had it all and what we had is not coming back, Zack." Meanwhile, U2's announced that the first single from Songs of Experience, a tune titled "You're the Best Thing About Me," will be released Wednesday, September 6. The band also will unveil full details about the album that day. U2 has been playing another tune from Songs of Experience, "The Little Things That Give You Away," at select shows during their current The Joshua Tree Tour 2017, and also performed that song recently on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live. The band kicks off the second North American leg of its Joshua Tree Tour this Sunday in Detroit. Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
