- Willie Williams confirms talks underway about post SOE/Ei tour plans
- a bit of American Soul is heard in Bono sample in Kendrick's XXX.. maybe a little more uptempo. A "rocker"

Hear Bono talk about American Soul. He says song is "a letter to America." Cites this verse

"it's not a place, this country to me is a thought
that offers grace for every welcome that is sought

Also says that a lot of the songs on SOE are "letters" (ex. The Showman is a letter to fans/the audience)

finally this explains why all members of U2 were credited in XXX.

The music might be great. The rest of the lyrics might be great. The quoted lyrics are awkwardly constructed.

Bono and U2 for that matter used to have such an openness / space to their music and I think that's part of the change.

Bono's style has changed where he doesn't allow the words to breathe. It's quicker pace and I think that contributes to the clunk

Oh he has a rhyme for it in the next verse:

America to me is a beautiful idea
Give me a burrito, fill up my tortilla
