Bono's 'Streets Of Surrender' Appears On Zucchero's New Album

@U2, March 18, 2016
By: Matt McGee


Bono has written the lyrics to a new song that will appear (or Google translation) on Black Cat, the new album from the Italian singer Zucchero. The album is due for release on April 29th.

You may recognize the name of the song: "Streets Of Surrender (SOS)." That's the song that Bono wrote in the aftermath of the November 2015 terrorist attacks in Paris. He talked about the song and recited at least some of the lyrics during an appearance on CNN in early December. The chorus, at least at the time of that appearance, went like this:

You're free, baby, baby
Free now and forever
It's Christmas time
You can decide to forget or to remember
You're free, baby, baby
I didn't come down here to fight ya
I came down these streets of love and pride to surrender
The streets of surrender

Video of that CNN appearance with the full lyrical recitation is below, and you can read them on our previous article about "Streets Of Surrender."
