WATCH: U2’s Lyric Video For “You’re The Best Thing About Me”
As promised (and bright and early), U2 has officially unveiled “You’re The Best Thing About Me,” the first single off their upcoming album Songs of Experience.
The decidedly poppy tune is accompanied by flipbook imagery displaying the track’s lyrics, with easily the highlight being the cheeky, “Shooting off my mouth, that’s another great thing about me,” followed by an image of Bono circa Achtung Baby that is then instantly crumpled into a ball.
So far, a release date for Songs of Experience has yet to be confirmed, but it is heavily rumored to be out on December 1, which is also World AIDS Day.
