Bono has revealed that the album was influenced by Brendan Kennelly's advice to "write as if you're dead" and the result is a series of songs in the form of letters to people and places close to his heart.

Produced by Jacknife Lee and Ryan Tedder, with Steve Lillywhite, Andy Barlow and Jolyon Thomas, the album features a cover image by Anton Corbijn of band-members’ teenage children Eli Hewson and Sian Evans.
