U2 frontman Bono has released a new song this week.

And he dedicated to those in Italy suffering from the coronavirus outbreak.

Let Your Love Be Known is the singers first release since 2017

Their last record to hit the airwaves was their album Songs Of Innocence.

In the track, Bono speaks of his Dublin home and walking through deserted streets..

Let Your Love Be Known was a St Patrick’s Day gift earlier this week.

Posted on Instagram, the song was supposedly penned just an hour before he performed it live on the piano.

 

The lyrics to the track Let Your Love Be Known are below:

Yes there was silence
yes there was no people here
yes I walked through the streets of Dublin and no-one was near
Yes I don’t know you
No I didn’t think I didn’t care
You live so very far away from just across the square

And I can’t reach but I can rain
You can’t touch but you can sing
Across rooftops
Sing down the phone
Sing and promise me you won’t stop
Sing your love, be known, let your love be known.

The latest on coronavirus in Liverpool

Yes there is isolation
You and me we’re still here
Yes when we open our eyes we will stare down the fear
And maybe I’ve said the wrong thing
Yes I made you smile
I guess the longest distance is always the last mile.

And I can’t reach but I can rain
You can’t touch but you can sing
Across rooftops
Sing to me down the phone
Sing and promise me you won’t stop
Sing and you’re never alone.

Sing as an act of resistance
Sing though your heart is overthrown
When you sing there is no distance
So let your love be known, oh let your love be known
Though your heart is overthrown.
Let your love be known.
