As the Edge told Rolling Stone, the Tree dates give the band an opportunity to celebrate its storied past without curtailing its commitment to new music — which includes the impending release of Songs of Experience, an LP he says they temporarily held off on releasing so they could “make sure that it really was what we wanted to say.” That delay gave them an opportunity to reflect on a record many still view as their crowning achievement, and hear it in the context of current events.
“The two sort of coincided and we decided we were gonna do some shows. And we’ve never given ourselves the opportunity to celebrate our past because we’ve always as a band looked forward, but I think we felt that this was a special moment, and this was a very special record,” he added. “So we’re happy to take this moment to regroup and think about an album that’s so many years old, but still seems relevant.”
