U2 Heads to India on Tour, Drops New Single Called “Ahimsa,” Collaboration with Slumdog Millionaire Composer


The word ‘ahimsa” means non-violence in Sanskrit. It’s the title of U2’s new single, a collaboration with “Slumdog Millionaire” composer A.R. Rahman. The group is on a tour of Australia, New Zealand, the Phillipines, Japan, South Korea, and Mumbai, so the timing is perfect. We can look forward to a new U2 album in 2020.

Me, I approve. I love hearing new music from U2.
