"One of the stories we tell about ourself is about our country. Countries don’t actually exist, they are drawn. Part of coming to eXPERIENCE + iNNOCENCE is realising that history can change and what we are witnessing in the US right now is that it’s rewriting itself with darker tones. We’re here in search for America at a time where America is in search of itself. It’s happened a few times over the life of U2 but we are looking for the same thing the country is."
- Bono, 2018

The song 'Heartland' is a homage to America and in particular the Missisippi delta that was the birth of the blues that Bono was getting interested in at the time.
