Recorded between Fez in Morocco, Dublin (HQ), New York (Platinum Sound Recording Studios) and London (Olympic Studios) and produced byBrian Eno, Daniel Lanois and Steve Lillywhite, U2's platinum-certified album No Line On The Horizon debuted at No. 1 in 30 countries across the globe in 2009. The net result was the band's seventh No. 1 in the US, and their tenthin the UK. Three Grammy nominations ensued, and Rolling Stone made it their album of 2009, further naming it the band's best work since Achtung Baby.
No Line On The Horizonis a work of measured maturity, infinitely able to create rousing rock on their own grand scale, as with "Magnificent," "Get On Your Boots" and "Breathe." But, at the other end of the scale, pieces like "Moment Of Surrender" and "White As Snow" were thoughtful reflections steeped in 30 years of writing and recording experience.
The album has beenfully remastered with two additional remixes added to celebrate its 10th Anniversary- "Magnificent (Wonderland Remix)" by Pete Tong and Paul Rogers and "I'll Go Crazy If I Don't Go Crazy Tonight" (Redanka's 'Kick the Darkness' Vocal Version). The original artwork has been faithfully reproduced, including a gatefold sleeve, 16-page booklet, printed inner sleeves and heavyweight outer plastic sleeve.

1981's October saw U2rising not only to the usual challenges of proving that you're more than a one-album wonder, but to the specific pressure of creating new work as the clock ticked ever louder. Where Boy had only brushed against a mainstream audience in the UK, peaking at No. 52, October reached No. 11. "Fire" was the opening shot, and it made some noise. The song was their first hit single at home, reaching the Top 5 in Ireland, and gave U2their first UK Top 40 entry. Next came "Gloria," the second single and the opening track. The song's Latin chorus foretold an LP with strong religious themes, but also with a developing sense of the band's songwriting maturity and instrumental dexterity. The innate percussive tension of "I Threw A Brick Through A Window" and urgency of "Rejoice" were offset by the measured, near-instrumental "Scarlet" and the affecting piano balladry of "October" itself.
Double 180 gram vinyl LP pressing. Pop is the ninth studio album by Irish rock band U2. It was produced by Flood, Howie B, and Steve Osborne, and was released on 3 March 1997 on Island Records. The album was a continuation of the band's 1990s musical reinvention, as they incorporated alternative rock, techno, dance, and electronica influences into their sound. Pop employed a variety of production techniques that were relatively new to U2, including sampling, loops, programmed drum machines, and sequencing. Recording sessions began in 1995 with various record producers, including Nellee Hooper, Flood, Howie B, and Osborne, who were introducing the band to various electronica influences.
Songs Of Experienceis the companion release to 2014'sSongs Of Innocence, the two titles drawing inspiration from a collection of poems,Songs of Innocence and Experience, by the 18th century English mystic and poet William Blake. WhileSongs of InnocencechartedU2'searliest influences and experiences in the late-1970s and early-1980s, the new album is a collection of songs in the form of intimate letters to places and people close to Bono's heart i.e. family, friends and fans.
The original thirteen-track album features the previously released tracks "You're The Best Thing About Me" and "The Blackout" as well as "The Little Things That Give You Away," whichU2debuted during their Joshua Tree 2017 tour. The song "American Soul" is a fleshed-out version of "XXX," the band's collaboration with Kendrick Lamar that was featured on the rapper'sDamnalbum. The front cover features a photograph of band members' teenage children Eli Hewson and Sian Evans as photographed byU2'slong-time visual collaboratorAnton Corbijn.
U2’slatest studio albumSongs Of Innocence, containing 11 new tracks, will be released by Island Records/Universal Music in October 2014. This physical release follows the album being given to U2.com subscribers and gifted by Apple to over half a billion iTunes Music Store customers worldwide.
Songs of InnocenceisU2’smost personal work to date, charting the band’s earliest influences from ‘70s rock and punk rock to early ‘80s electronica and ambient music and giving insight into how and why the band came together. As Bono sings in the lead song, "The Miracle (Of Joey Ramone)," "I woke up when the miracle occurred/ Heard a song that made some sense out of the world..."
The album deals with themes of home and family, relationships and discovery and was recorded in Dublin, London, New York and Los Angeles and is produced byDanger Mouse, along withPaul Epworth,Ryan Tedder,Declan GaffneyandFlood. The album closes with "The Troubles" featuring the distinctive vocals of Swedish indie singer-songwriter Lykke Li.
