Bono's acoustic version of Running To Stand Still from Glenn Hansard's busk event is getting an official release...

So Songs of Surrender should be announced on Tuesday (November 1), and it seems fairly likely it'll release on the 18th.

Bono is appearing on The Late Show with Colbert on Thursday, and this will include a musical performance as well as an interview.

What do we reckon the odds are of us getting a lead single next week ahead of the album release?

If the album is coming on November 18, I’d expect it to be announced around the book launch and the single dropped as well. Interesting though because the performance will be the book tour version, but the album is u2.

Didn't see this posted. Pretty cool interview. Minus the circle glasses we all despise Bono looks really good

So maybe he's not just playing songs from the book on tour?

Would be odd
