U2 frontman Bono has shared a series of thank you notes to Beyoncé, Kendrick Lamar, Prince, Nick Cave, and more.
It comes as part of the singer’s playlist “60 Songs That Saved My Life,” which he shared last week to mark his 60th birthday.
The plan, Bono revealed, is to write a personalized letter to each writer of the 60 songs to thank them for their creation. They will then be published on the official U2 website.
“These are some of the songs that saved my life.” Bono wrote when he announced the project and shared the first batch of letters, which included notes for Billie Eilish, Kraftwerk and David Bowie’s son Duncan.
“Without whom I could not have lived. The ones that took me from there to here, from zero to 60, through all the scratches, all kinds of annoyances. From serious to silly … and joy, especially joy, “continued Bono.
The letters continued to arrive this week, with written notes to Kanye West, Patti Smith, and more, and Bono has now shared the final batch.
Writing to Beyoncé and Kendrick about their ‘Freedom’ collaboration, Bono wrote: “There is nowhere this song is not going to go. The torch of that freedom is carried by you two flag bearers… I give thanks. ”
