U2 are set to release their 14th studio album Songs of Experience later this year. In promotion of the album, the Irish rockers visited Brazilian TV show Fantástico on Sunday (Oct. 22), where they discussed the project and performed 2013’s “Ordinary Love” atop a building, the picturesque São Paulo skyline visible behind them.

During the interview, the band said the current political climate caused the album’s delay. “For me, I had to make it very personal,” Bono told Fantástico host Alvaro Pereira Junior.
