U2‘s new album Songs of Experience, out today, begins with “Love is All We Have Left,” an ethereal opening track featuring Bono repeating the title phrase as shimmery, Auto-tuned vocals blip about in the background.
That introductory song serves as an introduction to an interesting, if not totally groundbreaking, new album from the iconic band. Pre-release tracks like “American Soul” (with its Kendrick Lamar introduction) and “The Blackout” dabbled in some higher-energy anthems from the band on the follow-up to 2014’s Songs of Innocence.
In all, the new record is a snapshot of where U2 are at this point in their vaunted career — fresh off a triumphant tour celebrating The Joshua Tree‘s 30th anniversary — and on the cusp of another huge tour, set to start in 2018.
