Titled 40 Songs, One Story the memoir will be available in hardcover, ebook and audio, with the audiobook narrated by none other than Bono himself!

“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,” said the 62-year-old.

“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.”

Adding: “In these shows, I’ve got some stories to sing, and some songs to tell… Plus, I want to have some fun presenting my ME-moir, Surrender, which is really more of a WE-moir, if I think of all the people who helped me get from there to here.”
