U2 has returned with a new song, and “Your Song Saved My Life” is especially sentimental — even by the Irish icons‘ lofty standards.

A song from the soundtrack to the upcoming animated film Sing 2, the tune landed on Wednesday and features lyrics like these from Bono:

Are you a stranger in your own life
What are you hiding behind those eyes?
Is no one looking for you there?

You know your song saved my life
I don’t sing it just so I can get by
Won’t you hear me when I tell you darlin’
I sing it to survive

Yes your song saved my life
It’s what got me to the other side
I was broken now I’m open,  your love keeps me alive

Based on the above, you have a good idea of what you’re getting into with this one. Listen below:

Sing 2 is scheduled to hit theaters on Dec. 22. Here’s the film’s trailer:

Bono also appears in the film, in animated fashion, at least — making the pairing of U2 on the soundtrack an obvious fit.

The film’s official synopsis:

This holiday season, the new chapter in Illumination’s smash animated franchise arrives with big dreams and spectacular hit songs as the ever-optimistic koala, Buster Moon, and his all-star cast of performers prepare to launch their most dazzling stage extravaganza yet …all in the glittering entertainment capital of the world. There’s just one hitch: They first have to persuade the world’s most reclusive rock star—played by global music icon Bono, in his animated film debut—to join them.
