Bono has a memoir on the way, a project he’s titled Surrender: 40 Songs, One Story. It’s out November 1 via Knopf. The U2 bandleader has previewed Surrender with an audio recording of one passage from the book, where he recounts beginning to write U2’s first single “Out of Control” on May 10, 1978—his 18th birthday. Check it out below.

Earlier this month, Bono and his U2 band mate the Edge traveled to Ukraine at the invitation of president Volodymyr Zelensky. The pair performed a surprise acoustic set in a Kyiv bomb shelter, inviting members of the Ukrainian band Antyila to join them in their gesture of solidarity. The singer also wrote a poem supporting Ukraine in March, which Nancy Pelosi read aloud at the White House’s Friends of Ireland luncheon on St. Patrick’s Day.
