U2's BONO Posts New Song He Wrote For Italians Affected By COVID-19
Bono of legendary rock band U2 took to Instagram to post a piano-driven song that he just wrote for the people of Italy.
The rockstar, who’s currently in his home in Dublin, Ireland wrote, “For the Italians who inspired it… for the Irish… for ANYONE who this St. Patrick’s day is in a tight spot and still singing. For the doctors, nurses, carers on the front line, it's you we’re singing to.”
In the video, Bono introduces the song as “a little postcard from Dublin,” while unveiling the title of this timely ballad that he just wrote.
“On this St. Patrick’s Day, a little tune made up here about an hour ago. I think it’s called ‘Let Your Love Be Known,'” he revealed, before playing the song live on the piano.
The new song’s lyrics were inspired by the Italians who have been joining their voices in song through open windows during their nationwide lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Watch Bono’s video here:
Over 2,500 Italians have died from the virus in these past few weeks while the number of cases continue to climb at an alarming rate.
Bono and the rest of U2 visited the Philippines last December for the first time and had a very successful concert at the Philippine Arena.
