Irish megaband U2 today revealed plans to release its recent fanclub-only remix album Artificial Horizon — CDs of which were mailed free this month to paying members of U2.com — as a limited-edition triple vinyl collectors’ set that will be sold to the general public only through May 14.
Like the CD, the vinyl edition of Artificial Horizon — a sequel of sorts to 1995’s fan-club Melon remix CD — features 13 mixes of the band’s latter-period work (“Vertigo,” “Get On Your Boots,” “If God Will Send His Angels,” “Beautiful Day”) by the likes of Trent Rreznor and David Holmes. (Full tracklist and details here.)
According to the band’s website, pre-orders will be taken through May 14, and the vinyl allegedly will be pressed that very same day. Plus, fans who pre-order the deluxe set — $35, or $30 for U2.com members — will receive a free download of “Unknown Caller” (Snow Patrol Mix), which isn’t included on the album.
