It’s called “Let Your Love Be Known.” Bono posted the song to the U2 Instagram account with the caption, “For the Italians who inspired it... for the Irish... for ANYONE who this St Patrick’s Day is in a tight spot and still singing. For the doctors, nurses, carers on the front line, it’s you we’re singing to,” The Guardian reported.
