The physical single hit shops on November 6, , but a digital version had been released the week previous. The song itself was written and originally recorded by a Scottish punk band, the Skids. When Adamson died in , the Edge delivered a eulogy at his funeral and told mourners that Big Country had written the songs he wished U2 could write. Proceeds would benefit Music Rising, a charity that the Edge had helped create to bring instruments and music programs back to New Orleans. This was the first game to be held in the Louisiana Superdome since it had been heavily damaged during Huricane Katrina the previous year. Both U2 and Green Day took part in the live performance, which was also made available for purchase immediately by Real Rhapsody as a digital single. Early in the video, news footage of the Hurricane Katrina disaster is interspersed with shots of the two bands performing. The latter part of the video offers a fictional account of what could have happened in the Katrina aftermath, including shots of troops being redeployed from Iraq to help those in New Orleans, military helicopters conducting rescue operations above the Superdome, and bomber jets dropping supplies.
Released in April 2019
