Listing Detail Tabs

Recorded in Dublin, New York and Los Angeles, Songs of Experience was
completed earlier this year with its subject matter influenced by Brendan
Kennelly's advice to Bono, to “…write as if you're dead”. The result
is a collection of songs in the form of intimate letters to places and people
close to the singer's heart: family, friends, fans, himself.

Songs Of Experience  is the companion release to 2014's  'Songs Of
Innocence', the two titles drawing inspiration from a collection of poems, 
Songs of Innocence and Experience, by the 18th century English mystic and poet
William Blake. 
Produced by Jacknife Lee and Ryan Tedder, with Steve Lillywhite, Andy Barlow and
Jolyon Thomas, the album features a cover image by Anton Corbijn of
band-members' teenage children Eli Hewson and Sian Evans.
