“The Troubles” Set to Walking Dead Trailer
AMC has released two brand new trailers for The Walking Dead Season 5, which are set to music from the band U2. The first trailer is called “Together” and is set to U2’s new song “The Troubles” (featuring Lykke Li). The second trailer is called “Will For Survival” and is also set to U2’s new song “The Troubles” (featuring Lykke Li).
The use of “The Troubles” for this TV show highlights how U2’s music can adapt to certain contexts. A haunting song, it could apply to different victims, including those suffering from domestic abuse, the perspective of those who lived through the 1974 Dublin and Monaghan bombings in Dublin, or survivors of war and conflict in general.
