David Howell Evans aka The Edge (L) and Bono of U2 perform onstage during the 2016 iHeartRadio Music Festival - Night 1 held at T-Mobile Arena on Sept. 23, 2016 in Las Vegas.  

Last week, U2 teased a new song called “The Blackout” by sending fans a promotional letter in the mail. And now, they’ve revealed a few more details, announcing that the song will be out at noon ET and sharing a 15-second preview.

Although it’ll be the first song we’re hearing from the forthcoming Songs Of Experience, which is reportedly out Dec. 1 and presumably will not be forced into your iTunes library without permission, it’s not the lead single; that’d be “You’re The Best Thing About Me,” which is reportedly arriving next week. Either way, you can check out a clip of “The Blackout” below.
