U2: “YOU’RE THE BEST THING ABOUT ME” OFFICIAL VIDEO OUT NOW

U2 have released the official video for “You’re The Best Thing About Me,” the first single from their highly anticipated 14th album, Songs of Experience set for release later this year.

The video, directed by Jonas Åkerlund, sees the members of U2 reveling in the sights and sounds of New York City where, as a young Dublin band, they played their first U.S. club gig in December 1980 beginning a love affair with the city which has endured for almost 40 years.

Shot earlier this month while the band were on tour and featuring U2 in performance, the video is a fitting backdrop for the “You’re The Best Thing About Me” – Bono’s love letter to his wife Ali – and serves as a visual tapestry of tribute to New York and a serenade to the city’s iconic symbols of American compassion and liberty.

About The Author Kris Engelhart

I am a small business owner, freelance writer, and part-time piano instructor in Charlotte, NC. My musical career started at the age of five when I was forced into taking piano lessons. I played flute in the school band and added the guitar as a young teen. There is nothing I would rather do than be at a live show. My first concert was Shaun Cassidy at the Memorial Auditorium in Buffalo in 1978. My top five live shows ever are: 1. Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band – Memorial Auditorium, Buffalo, NY 1984- They played for 3 ½ hours and it was awesome. 2. Carolina Rebellion- Metrolina Expo Grounds, Charlotte, NC, May, 2011 – The first ever Carolina Rebellion featured over 15 bands with Avenged Sevenfold headlining. Non-stop music for over 12 hours. 3. Chevelle- Food Lion Speed Street, Charlotte, NC, May, 2008 - The first time I ever saw Chevelle live and I was hooked! 4. Skillet with Red- Bojangle’s Coliseum, Charlotte, NC, April, 2010 – Skillet is one of my favorite bands and they totally kick it live. 5. 106.5 The End’s Weenie Roast #9- Verizon Wireless Amiptheater, Charlotte, NC , October, 2003- Featured Staind, Shinedown, Three Days Grace.
