LONDON, ENGLAND - NOVEMBER 12: Irish rock band U2, Bono (2R), The Edge (R), Adam Clayton (L) and Larry Mullen Jr (2L), accept the global icon award on stage during the MTV EMAs 2017 held at The SSE Arena, Wembley on November 12, 2017 in London, England.

Lots of U2 news to discuss today, so let’s dive in.

*It’s official!  U2’s Song of Experience debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 album chart with 186,000 units tallied and 180,000 of that figure coming from traditional album sales.  This makes U2’s eighth album to top the Billboard 200.

*BBC 1 will be airing a new special on the band on December 19.  Here’s a preview showing The Edge and Adam Clayton in a record shop in Sao Paulo.

*Finally, U2 shared a tease of a new music video for the track “Get Out Of Your Own Way.”  A release date for the entire video hasn’t been announced yet, but we can’t imagine the wait to be very long.

'I can sing it to you all night all night / If I could I'd make it alright alright...' Coming soon, the video for Get Out Of Your Own Way. #U2SongsofExperience #U2
