Here's the Songs Of Experience track list
October 30, 2017
With an official Songs Of Experience announcement expected any day now, it's no secret what songs will be included on U2's next album. Bono and the band have revealed more than a dozen titles already, and even shared a few details about the running order -- all of which we've been tracking on our new U2 album page.
Adding to that information, @U2 has now learned the full track list and running order of Songs Of Experience. This information comes from photos shared with @U2 of the deluxe vinyl edition, with the track list appearing on the back cover. We assume the song list and running order will be the same on other versions, with the exception of the three bonus songs indicated below that are likely only included on the deluxe SOE. Here's what we saw in the photos:
1) Love Is All We Have Left
1) Summer Of Love
Side 4 (bonus tracks):
1) Ordinary Love (Extraordinary Mix)
That's right in line with the known list of songs that the band has mentioned in recent interviews, but there are a couple noteworthy items:
One final note: It looks like U2 will be participating in some kind of Songs Of Experience listening party later this year in the Los Angeles area. San Diego-area radio station 91X is advertising an event called "The U2 Experience," and giving listeners a chance to win tickets to attend, hear the album, meet the band and get a photo with them. No date is mentioned, but it's described as a "pre-release" party, so we're assuming it'll happen prior to the expected December 1 release. We're also assuming other radio stations will be running similar contests, but that's still TBD.
