Irish Rock band, U2 has decided to delay the release of their upcoming album, Songs of Experience, due to Donald Trump winning the US presidential election last November.
According to band guitarist David ‘The Edge‘ Evans in an interview with Rolling Stone, the group had nearly completed the album when ‘the election (happened) and suddenly the world changed.’
He said, ‘We just went, ‘Hold on a second, we’ve got to give ourselves a moment to think about this record and about how it relates to what’s going on in the world.’
Evans also confirmed the band’s done similar before, referring to their fifth album The Joshua Tree during the Reagan-Thatcher era of British and American politics.
For now, their fans will have to wait a while longer before experiencing more of the band’s songs.
