"It's not saying we even want to get along, but that we have to get along together in this world if it is to survive."

U2's 'American Soul' now available on iTunes, streaming services

Spotify - American Soul

A fourth track from Songs Of Experience is now available on digital music stores and streaming services. "American Soul" is available for purchase on iTunes Music Stores around the world. It's also available for streaming on Spotify and other services.

The track runs 4:22 and begins with spoken-word lyrics by rapper Kendrick Lamar -- a continuation of his rap at the end of "Get Out Of Your Own Way," the song that precedes "American Soul" on the album. Later, "American Soul" offers a familiar chorus: "You are rock 'n' roll / You and I are rock 'n' roll," Bono sings, with the same music and melody as "Volcano" from Songs Of Innocence. It's not the only new song that refers back to Songs Of Innocence so obviously; we're told that "13," the final track on SOE, is a reprise of SOI's "Song For Someone." (Note that William Blake had similar connections in the poems that he wrote for his Songs Of Innocence And Of Experience collection.)
