Martin Garrix confirms the Euro 2020 anthem with Bono & The Edge Out this month
Martin Garrix has teamed up with Bono & The Edge for the official Euro 2020 Theme song.
To clarify, David Evans aka the Edge is the lead guitarist, keyboard player and backing vocalist for the Irish rock band U2next to the singer and lyricist Bono.
We Are The People has reportedly been in the works for over a year. Garrix made the music first before signing up for Bono & The Edge to turn the track into a proper anthem. Production has been delayed due to the pandemic, but Garrix has confirmed it will be out next Friday.
“We are the people we’ve been waiting for,” says Garrix in the following post.
The deadline is May 14, well before the UEFA European Football Championship (informally known as the Euro), which starts in June. The tournament was suspended last year and continues to be referred to as Euro 2020.
Meanwhile Garrix and Maejor have their debut album as AREA21 expected this fall. More about it here.
