I'm streaming from my phone and it didn't work. I missed it. Anyone know where I can hear it?

Cheers

I expect it'll get some hate here, and it's not the type of song that made me fall in love with U2, but it's not bad. We knew, from Kygo, it was all about the melody hooks and the groove. And those are pretty strong.
I like the mix in the verses.
Adam may well be the star of this album.

I was taken back by the sudden swerve early on. Other than that, I don't know quite what to think yet.

First impression is that it's plodding. The production is a bit meh, it's in the proper style but the song needs more breathing room (for great "breathing room", see pre-chorus of The Blackout). Also, Bono's vocals needs to be much lower in the mix.

Bummer coz the hook didn’t need any of the crap. It sounds like a medley

I think when it was a basic pop song that highlighted the hooks there was a simple magic to it. I can't find that magic on first listen. Hoping it grows.

Those synth accents (or whatever they are) in the second verse not working for me - maybe it will grow though. But I think I liked the new bridge.
