Background Information

Bono sings lead vocals and co-writes a song “Eden: To Find Love” on this soundtrack to the Discovery+ soundtrack to Citizen Penn. The song is co-written by Linda Perry of 4 Non Blondes, who also produces the song, and developed the rest of the score for the film. The score was originally planned for May 7th based on the press release, but was delayed until May 21, 2021. The film launched May 6th on Discovery+ which was where the track was first heard.

On May 20, 2021 a streaming video was added to U2’s YouTube account. The video features the song, with a lyric video. The concept for the video was by Gavin Friday and Don Hardy who directed Citizen Penn, and was directed by Don Hardy. The video features clips and audio from the film ahead of the start of the song. These fade as the song begins.

The audio soundtrack was released two weeks after the movie started streaming, May 21, 2021 on digital streaming services and digital store fronts. It was available in compressed audio formats as well as uncompressed formats. The soundtrack is made up of 40 tracks, and runs just shy of two hours of music.

Of the song Bono told Rolling Stone “In this song I play God and Sean plays Adam, having explained that it was me not Eve who got us thrown out of the Eden…or something like that. Linda helped me strip this all right back, and I even got our daughter Jordan on backing vocals. It’s a family affair.” Although not mentioned, the track features not one Hewson but three. Both Jordan and Eli Hewson are credited with vocals on the track. Eli is also credited with recording the backing vocals.
