For the ones wondering, they are Bono's son and Edge's daughter.

Very retrospective with the war helmet.

It's a very old fashioned image I wonder if Anton took it...

Thought it was an old high school photo of Bono for a second.

So people say this is going to be the SOE album cover, which makes sense as SOI has Larry's kid on it and it is all nicely themed. However what is the source? How do we know this is going to be the album cover, or is it just an assumption?

I think it's just an assumption to be fair. I'd like a mix of Achtung /Zooropa/Pop style cover as a "Supposed" nod to the '90s the music SOE is taking.

I am a bit surprised the new U2 song wasn't trending on twitter last night and this a.m.

Also on YouTube on my fireTV none of the top trending videos are from the show....including a brand new U2 song!

They need to hire someone young and creative for a creative album cover. This is just nice but doesn't grab me.

I for one surprisingly like it. I'm usually against the typical black-and-white album covers (especially when U2 do them!), but this is done right.

Still, because this is U2, we need something more colorful. The last four albums have all had B&W covers (ATYCLB is more sepia, but still...) and it is time for a change-up.

I actually think this could be the single cover. Given the rumours we've had about a forthcoming new U2 single I think this could well be the artwork for it.

That makes the most sense. Drop the single now!

Its just an image they put on screen. Why does it have to be any cover? Maybe it is? But it could just be an image. Major assumptions going on here.
