U2 frontman Bono has stated that he has written a song about the recent Paris terror attacks.
132 people were recently killed during a series of attacks on the French capital on November 13, with gig venue Le Bataclan the worst hit. 89 people were shot at Eagles Of Death Metal’s Paris concert.
U2 had been scheduled to play in Paris the day after the attacks but later cancelled their shows.
Now, Bono has revealed to CNN that he was inspired by the tragic events to pen a new track.
The song is called ‘Streets of Surrender’ and Bono recited some of the lyrics during a new video interview. Watch below.
Meanwhile, it was recently confirmed Eagles Of Death Metal will join U2 onstage at their rescheduled Paris gig this Sunday (December 6).
In their first interview after the attacks, the band said they said they wanted to finish their tour, with frontman Jesse Hughes adding, “I want to be the first person to play in the Bataclan when it opens up.”
According to a Billboard source, the band will perform with U2 on December 6 at Paris’ AccorHotels Arena and will recommence their European tour in February 2016. Josh Homme, who was not present during the Bataclan attack, will reportedly also be at the U2 gig.
