U2’s Bono and The Edge are set to release a new documentary.
The musicians teamed up with host David Letterman on “Bono and The Edge: A Sort Of Homecoming, With Dave Letterman,” which airs on Disney Plus.
Letterman will join the pair in their native Ireland, culminating in a U2 concert in Dublin.
He said in a statement: “Recently I won a radio contest. The winner gets to visit Dublin with Bono and The Edge (part of the radio contest is not true, but I feel like a winner).
“They showed me around, introduced me to their musician friends and performed some of their best songs in a small venue. It’s a great tour. Contact them – I was told there is still availability. I have it luckiest man on the planet. (There are no availability).”
The documentary is directed by Morgan Neville.
The release is set for March 17, the same day as U2’s new compilation album ‘Songs Of Surrender’, featuring “re-imagined and re-recorded” songs, is released.
The record will feature 40 tracks across four albums – one named after each of U2’s four members; Bono, The Edge, Larry Mullen and Adam Clayton – all curated and produced by The Edge.
He said: “It was really exciting to hear the songs interact with each other and find the order of the four albums; find the surprising segments, get the chance to DJ. Once we had four different albums, it was easy to see who would become the figurehead of each.”
