U2’s Bono has shared a new song called “Let Your Love Be Known”, dedicated to “the doctors, nurses, [and] carers on the front line,” and was inspired by the crisis in Italy. Italy’s healthcare system is overwhelmed by COVID-19, and in many hospitals, every time an ICU bed becomes available, doctors are forced to decide which sick patients to treat and which to let die.
In a video shared on Instagram, Bono introduced the song as a “little tune I made up about an hour ago.
I think it’s called “Let Your Love Be Known”.” The lyrics deal with quarantine, with people who “live so very far away from me/ Just across the square”, and references neighbors who can’t touch, so they sing — as demonstrated in a recent viral video. Check out “Let Your Love Be Known” below.
