A coronavirus-free story: Bono dropped a new song via a livestream

Okay, so it’s not totally coronavirus-free, but stay with me on this.

Yesterday–St. Patrick’s Day–Bono offered up a new song called “Let Your Love Be Known” on a Facebook livestream, saying it was “For the doctors, nurses, carers, on the front line, it’s you we’re singing to.”

Ireland is in lockdown, which effectively cancelled St. Patrick’s Day. As Jimmy Kimmel said in a video post, this is akin to Santa Claus dying on Christmas.
