Album Review: Songs of Surrender by U2

Based on rating 5/10

When U2 announced Songs of Surrender, their reimagining of 40 tracks from throughout their career, an oft-repeated exchange they had with Bob Dylan started to resurface. As The Edge puts it, "I once said to Bob Dylan, 'People are going to be playing your songs for thousands of years.' He said, 'Man, they're going to be listening to your songs too. It's just no one's going to know how to play them.'" This line has stuck with the band for some time, leading to a near-obsession with writing songs you can play on an acoustic guitar.

This collection of 40 seminal U2 songs from across the band's back-catalogue of 14 studio albums which have sold 170 million copies worldwide have been re-recorded and re-imagined for 2023.
