During an interview with Fuller Studio, the rock star spoke about how much the poetry in the biblical book had influenced him.
He was asked by Fuller Texas professor of theology and culture, David O Taylor to give one sentence answers to questions about the of hymn filled book.
Taylor asked: "What's one thing that you've learned about God through your reading of the psalms?"
Bono answered: "He listens."
Next up from Taylor: "What's one thing that you've learned about yourself through your reading of the psalms?"
Bono said: "I don't listen enough."
In a previous taped conversation with Fuller Studio released April 2016, Bono compared the Psalms with contemporary Christian worship music and argued that some contemporary worship music didn't have the raw emotions that are contained within the Psalms.
In the new video series, he highlighted the same point and offered advice to young Christian artists.
"We don't have to please God in any other way really other than to be brutally honest - that is the root not just to a relationship with God but is the root to a great song.
"I want to hear a song about the breakdown in your marriage, I want to hear songs of justice, I want to hear rage at injustice and I want to hear a song so good that it makes people want to do something about the subject."
