U2 / Songs of Experience box set

All the formats of U2’s new album explained

U2‘s forthcoming album Songs of Experience, will be available as a three-disc box set and a trio of other physical formats.

Recorded in Dublin, New York and Los Angeles, Songs of Experience follows three years on from 2014’s Songs of Innocence and follows on from this summer’s The Joshua Tree reissue and tour.

The album is being released as a 13-track jewel-case CD, a 17 track deluxe CD edition which is packaged as a gatefold card wallet, and a 16-track 2LP gatefold cyan vinyl edition. The vinyl sounds very well spec’d and includes two black poly-lined sleeve, two printed inners and a six-panel oversized booklet.

Additionally, there is a deluxe box set that gathers both the deluxe CD and the double cyan vinyl and packages them in a 12″ x 12″ rigid box. This is numbered and also comes with a fold-out poster and a “Songs of Experience Newspaper”. The box and the standalone 2LP cyan vinyl both come with a download code.

Two tracks from the album – The Blackout and You’re The Best Thing About Me – have already been made available. The latter has been remixed by Norwegian DJ and producer Kygo and features as the last bonus track on the deluxe CD (this is the one track not on the 2LP set, although it may well form part of the download).  The album has been produced by Jacknife Lee and Ryan Tedder, with Steve Lillywhite, Andy Barlow and Jolyon Thomas. The cover image (by Anton Corbijn) features band-members’ teenage children Eli Hewson and Sian Evans.

Songs of Experience is released on 1 December 2017. Best price on the box set (by a considerable margin) is currently JPC in Germany – Update: they are no longer taking orders for the box. The non-deluxe CD is only available in the UK.
