U2 announce exclusive Record Store Day EP
To celebrate Record Store Day, U2 have announced the release of a new 3-track EP titled U2: The Europa EP.
Island Records and UMC have today announced U2: The Europa EP, a new 3-track EP to celebrate Record Store Day on Saturday 13 April 2019.
Side A of the EP features an exclusive new mix of previously unreleased material from U2’s recent eXPERIENCE + iNNOCENCE Tour: Charlie Chaplin’s electrifying speech from the movie The Great Dictator underscored with a mash-up of Songs Of Experience track Love Is All We Have Left and 1993 classic Zooropa, leading into a performance of New Year’s Day recorded live in Dublin on 5 November last year.
Side B comprises two Euro-tinged remixes: St. Francis Hotel’s mix of the original album version of New Year’s Day and Jon Pleased Wimmin’s Euromantic mix of Love Is All We Have Left.
The EP cover art is a Chaplin-esque homage to the Europe-themed artwork of U2’s 1993 album Zooropa and features the figure 130, in celebration of Chaplin’s 130th birthday which falls on 16 April this year.
