  • In Bono‘s upcoming book, Surrender: 40 Songs, One Story, each chapter is based around the title of a specific U2 song and features hand drawings by the singer.
  • Rolling Stone quoted Bono as explaining the brief of Surrender: “When I started to write this book, I was hoping to draw in detail what I’d previously only sketched in songs. The people, places, and possibilities in my life. Surrender is a word freighted with meaning for me. Growing up in Ireland in the Seventies with my fists up (musically speaking), it was not a natural concept. A word I only circled until I gathered my thoughts for the book. I am still grappling with this most humbling of commands. In the band, in my marriage, in my faith, in my life as an activist. Surrender is the story of one pilgrim’s lack of progress. . .  With a fair amount of fun along the way.”
