Beck opened for U2 during their 30th anniversary tour of their classic 1987 album The Joshua Tree last year but he’s turned to the band’s latest record, Songs Of Experience, to remix album track ‘Lights of Home’.
The remix features a riff from Haim’s 2014 single “My Song 5” and also features Haim on backing vocals. It was originally released on Record Store Day, pressed to a 12-inch picture disc and featuring a photo of Bono’s son Eli and Edge’s daughter Sian. It’s limited to 5000 copies worldwide and also includes the album version of ‘Lights Of Home’ and an orchestral ‘St Peter’s String Version.’
You can listen to Beck’s remix below.
Meanwhile, U2 have released a new music video for Songs of Experience track ‘Love Is Bigger Than Anything in Its Way’.
Directed by fashion and music photographer David Mushegain, it features the young LGBTQ+ community in Dublin – some of which, Mushegain had previously photographed for a series of street style portraits.
You can watch the ‘Love Is Bigger Than Anything in Its Way’ video below.
The ‘U2 Experience’ app will give fans an augmented reality experience, both at home and while at tour dates.
The app allows users to hold their phone up and point it at the 100 foot long LED wall that will form part of the band’s set, which will trigger a ‘specially curated audio visual experience emerging through your mobile device’.
Fans can also use the app at home by pointing their camera at U2’s latest album cover ‘Songs of Experience‘ to ‘get a taste of what’s coming up in the show’.
