U2 Reimagining 40 Songs For New Album ‘Songs Of Surrender’

U2 have reimagined 40 songs from their catalog for a new album, Songs of Surrender.

“Pride (In The Name Of Love),” the first track from the new set of recordings has been released.

The album is a companion to Bono‘s recent memoir, “Surrender: 40 Songs, One Story.” The album is set to arrive on March 17.

Songs Of Surrender was curated and produced by The Edge. It will see the band revisit some of the most celebrated songs of their 40+ year career, including “With Or Without You,” “One,” “Beautiful Day,” “Sunday Bloody Sunday” and “Invisible.”

“Music allows you to time travel,” explained The Edge, “And we became curious to find out what it would be like to bring our early songs back with us to the present day and give them the benefit, or otherwise, of a 21st century reimagining.”

“The process of selecting which songs to revisit started with a series of demos. I looked at how a song would hang together if all but the bare essential elements were taken away. The other main aim was to find ways to bring intimacy into the songs, as most of them were originally written with live concert performance in mind,” he added.
