Return Surrender

“Songs of Surrender” is an upcoming re-imagined album by the band U2. The album is closely tied to Bono’s autobiography, also called “Surrender”, which details the story behind 40 of the band’s songs.

The album will feature reworked versions of some of U2’s most popular and iconic tracks, as well as previously unreleased material. According to Bono, the album will offer a new perspective on the band’s music.

The album is expected to be a reflection on the band’s journey and the themes that have been present throughout their career, such as love, loss, and redemption. Bono has stated that the album will be a more introspective and personal take on their music, and will explore the themes of surrender and the idea of letting go.

“Songs of Surrender” is also expected to be a tribute to the band’s late manager, Paul McGuinness, who passed away in 2017. The album is expected to be a celebration of McGuinness’ legacy and the impact he had on the band’s career.

It is sure to be an eagerly anticipated album and fans can expect new and previously unreleased material. The album will also give fans a deeper understanding of the themes and stories behind the band’s music, and will provide a personal and introspective look at Bono’s life and career.

Songs Written Down

There’s been a spate of lyrics books being published lately. Some like Bryan Ferry’s have been a simple publishing of the lyrics while Paul McCartney’s effort looks at the story behind the work as well. U2’s Bono is set to join more the latter with his book, Surrender – 40 Songs, One Story.

As the above video shows, it’s very engaging to hear the story in his own voice so it would be great if he records the whole book.

No Need To Wait

With the European Football Championships coming up on the weekend, it is customary – though by no means necessary – to release a song to mark the event. This year it’s U2’s Bono and The Edge along with Martin Garrix to put the jersey on for coming up with a song.

These songs never really exceed the standard of novelty b-side and this song isn’t any exception.

While not offensive, it won’t rank at the top of U2’s best work and surely won’t be sung in full voice from the stands by fans.
