‘Let your love be known’: Bono writes new song inspired by quarantined Italians singing

Bono, frontman of Irish rock band U2, today wrote a new song inspired by the Italians who were singing to each other from their balconies while being quarantined.

Italy has gone into lockdown to bring its coronavirus situation under control.

Bono's new song, titled 'Let your love be known', was posted by the singer on his Instagram account.

"For the Italians who inspired it… for the Irish… for ANYONE who this St Patrick's Day is in a tight spot and still singing. For the doctors, nurses, carers on the front line, it's you we're singing to," Bono said in the post.

This is the first new song the U2 frontman has performed since the band's most recent album -- Songs of Experience -- was released in December 2017.

Let Your Love Be Known (Lyrics)

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.

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.
