U2 to release 30th anniversary super deluxe box sets of The Joshua Tree

U2 will celebrate the 30th anniversary of their 1987 album The Joshua Tree this June, with three new editions of the album, including a four-CD super deluxe edition box set.

The super deluxe edition box set (which is also available as a 7LP vinyl set) includes a remastered version of the album (update: there is a suggestion, but not official confirmation that they are using the 2007 remaster), 17 tracks performed Live at Madison Square Garden in 1987 (featuring most of the album), a disc of new remixes and a B-sides and outtakes CD. That final disc repeats most of the tracks on the bonus CD included in the 20th anniversary reissue (the SDE of which was a 2CD+DVD set), although it omits the single edit of Where the Streets Have No Name and adds an unreleased alternate mix of I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For (called the ‘Lillywhite Alternative Mix ’87’) and a new 2017 mix of One Tree Hill (called One Tree Hill Reprise) courtesy of Brian Eno.


The four-CD 30th anniversary super deluxe edition of The Joshua Tree

In total 25 audio tracks are previously unreleased (including the live material) and the CDs will come housed in a large format 12-inch double gatefold folio. This is packaged with The Joshua Tree – Photographs by The Edge, an 84-page hardcover book of never-before seen photography by The Edge, taken during the original Mojave Desert Joshua Tree shoot in 1986. Additionally this super deluxe set comes with a folio of eight 12-inch Anton Corbijn colour prints. The outer box features a “textured embossed gold foiled Joshua tree icon”.


7LP vinyl edition of the 30th anniversary super deluxe edition of The Joshua Tree

The 7LP vinyl version of this super deluxe edition box features exactly the same audio and exactly the same books and prints as the four-CD set. The only difference is that the audio is across 14 sides of vinyl! Good price in Germany right now for this vinyl edition.


2CD edition of the 30th anniversary Joshua Tree features alternative artwork

Additionally, there will be a two-CD edition of the 30th anniversary which will feature a colour version of the famous cover shot set on a white background. The bonus disc in this set will be the The Joshua Tree Live at Madison Square Garden 1987. There will be single CD and standard double vinyl, editions available as well.

All 30th anniversary editions of The Joshua Tree will be released on 2 June 2017.
