U2 have shared a video for You’re The Best Thing About Me from their fourteenth studio album ‘Songs of Experience’ (out 1 December 2017) the companion piece to 2014’s illustrious gift ‘Songs of Innocence’.
You’re The Best Thing About Me sees U2 teaming up with director Tatia Pilieva, best known for her Cannes Gold Lion winning film The Kiss (2014).
‘It’s a love song,’ explains Pilieva, of ‘You’re The Best Thing About Me’. ‘What’s interesting is not the bringing people together; it’s the separation.’
‘The key for me is that when these people are saying goodbye, they are still very much in love,’ she said. ‘I didn’t want to film a bunch of breakups. I didn’t want to put that into the world. I wanted to put out something positive. Yes, it’s positively heartbreaking, but there’s love all over it.’
