U2’s singer Bono has now written his first song since 2017 and it’s a song about the coronavirus crisis. He drew inspiration from the Italians and their way of dealing with quarantine during the virus outbreak, The Guardian writes.
In a video on Instagram that the U2 singer posted on St Patrick’s day yesterday, he performed the song “Let your love be known” at a piano. He sings about wandering the Dublin deserted streets and a line says: “We can’t touch each other, but we can sing”.
He explains that the Italians, who during the quarantine sing to each other from their balconies, inspired the song and that it is a tribute to the many Irish people who this year are not allowed to celebrate their national day.
“For everyone who, during St Patrick’s day, is in a shaky position but still sings. For the doctors, nurses and carers on the front line, it’s you we’re singing to,” he writes.
