U2 return with Songs of Experience which acts as a companion piece to 2014’s Songs of Innocence.
Where ..Innocence chronicled the bands tales of adolescence, this album is a more seasoned reflection. Lyrically, Bono tackles his mysterious recent “brush with mortality” not to mention the current American political climate. The undisputed highlight is the jubilant-sounding Get Out Of Your Own Way which features a spoken cameo from Kendrick Lamar.
This is a remarkably fresh offering from a band now into their 5th decade though unfortunately it won’t be dropped right into your iTunes catalogue!
