U2 will reveal the sum of their experiences to Atlanta audiences when they visit the Infinite Energy Arena on May 28 as part of their Experience + Innocence Tour. The trek will be in support the band's forthcoming 14th studio album Songs of Experience (due out Dec. 1), a response, and sequel, to 2014's Songs of Innocence.
The personal project came as the result of poetic guidance; according to a press release "The lyrical approach of the album was greatly inspired by Irish poet, novelist and Trinity College, Dublin Professor Emeritus Brendan Kennelly’s advice to Bono to 'write as if you’re dead,' resulting in a collection of songs in the form of intimate letters to places and people close to the singer’s heart -- family, friends, fans, himself."
Led by "You're The Best Thing About Me," the LP also includes the previously-released tracks "The Blackout," "The Little Things That Give You Away," and the brand new "Get Out of Your Own Way," featuring Kendrick Lamar.
