Moment of Surrender (7:25)

Cover of No Line on the Horizon

From No Line on the Horizon and 20 other releases

Co-producer Daniel Lanois told The National Post about the writing of this song: “That was an ensemble composition. It had that great Eno/Mullen thing from the go. A kind of rolling hand drum. And the original sketch had me in charge of the chorus. Bono would point to me: ‘Ok, Lanois, you sing the chorus’ (sings the chorus’ hook out loud). It’s very much a Canadian sound there, a tribute to The Band. We call it the ‘Simcoe sound.’’ (Source Moment Of Surrender Songfacts).
