U2 News Round-Up: New Track, ‘Joshua Tree’ Tour Figures

Shortly after revealing the track list and cover for its new album, Songs Of Experience, as well as 2018 North American tour dates, U2 has released another new song from the set.

The Irish quartet has released "Get Out Of Your Own Way," an airy and anthemic track which features a cameo by rapper Kendrick Lamar, to follow "The Blackout," which came out in late August, and the album's first official single, "You're The Best Thing About Me."

Songs Of Experience, U2's 14th studio album, comes out December 1 and is the follow-up to 2014's Songs Of Innocence.

...Meanwhile, final figures are in for U2's Joshua Tree Tour celebrating that album's 30th anniversary in North America, Europe and South America this year. The group's 50-show trek sold 2.7 million tickets and grossed more than $316 million worldwide.

The tour wrapped up last month with a five-show swing through South America.
