Listen to Kendrick Lamar Preach on the New U2 Track

U2 just released a new single from their upcoming album Songs of Experience featuring Kendrick Lamar called Get Out of Your Way. This new offering from the iconic rock band is equal parts love song and political commentary, punctuated by K-Dot’s lyrical sermonette at the end–a tongue-in-cheek interpolation of Jesus’ famous Sermon on the Mount, delivered in a way that recalls the intro to Prince’s Let’s Go Crazy. He announces:


Blessed are the arrogant, for there is the kingdom of their own company/Blessed are the superstars/For the magnificence in their light/We understand better our own insignificance/Blessed are the filthy rich/For you can only truly own what you give away/Like your pain.


This is not the first U2-Kendrick collab we’ve seen this year. U2 previously appeared on the track XXX from Kendrick’s DAMN. album. U2’s Songs of Experience is scheduled for release on December 1.

Listen to the new track below.
