U2 Sends Mysterious 'Blackout' Letters to Fans

U2 sends mysterious letters to their fans. Fans of the Irish rock band opened their mailboxes on Monday, August 21 to find an unexpected letter from the band, who is apparently promoting their new single.

The letters include a paragraph about William Blake's "Songs of Innocence and Experience", the collection of poetry that inspired the titles of U2's 2014 album "Songs of Innocence" and its forthcoming counterpart, "Songs of Experience".

Most of the text is blocked out by a silhouette of Bono's son and the Edge's daughter. The phrase "Blackout ... It's clear who you are will appear ... U2.com" can be read along with a line which says, "U2 will announce [blank] on [blank]."

A fan commented, "Totally weird and random piece of mail today. Must be from the @u2 fan club. Very cool that they did this!" Another one added, "Any other #U2 fans get this letter in their mailbox today? @u2 @atu2 @U2start @u2songs @u2gigs."

U2 is currently on a break prior to the second North American leg of their "Joshua Tree" anniversary tour, which was named after their 1987 album "The Joshua Tree". The tour is commemorating the 30th anniversary of "The Joshua Tree". The group will head back out on the road with Beck in September.

Although "Songs of Experience" was mostly completed by the end of 2016, the band decided to delay a release to give them time to reflect on the outcome of the 2016 US presidential election and to reassess whether the album was still communicating what they wanted.
