U2′s “Achtung Baby” 20th Anniversay Edition Coming

U2 Fans – Universal Music has fantastic news…To mark twenty years since its 1991 release, an anniversary edition of U2’s Achtung Baby is due on November 1, 2011.

Twenty years ago, Bono described Achtung Baby as “the sound of four men chopping down The Joshua Tree” while Jon Pareles of the New York Times wrote that “stripped-down and defying its old formulas, U2 has given itself a fighting chance for the 1990′s”. The album won a Grammy Award for Best Rock Performance and became one of the most significant records of the nineties and of U2’s career.

Achtung Baby 20th Anniversary Editions Radio Sampler includes BLOW YOUR HOUSE DOWN, a previously unreleased song unearthed from the Achtung Baby sessions, plus EVEN BETTER THAN THE REAL THING (FISH OUT OF WATER REMIX) version performed by the band at this year’s Glastonbury Festival headline show, and further tracks plucked from the reissued album and bonus content.

The Achtung Baby archives have unearthed some previously unreleased songs from the recording sessions. With a raft of unreleased material; video, remixes, b-sides and documentary footage discovered, a full album of demo and early versions of the final 1991 tracklisting has also been revealed. Five physical editions including vinyl, CD, DVD and digital options will be made available. Full details of all formats are at achtungbaby.u2.com.
