New U2 Singles To Be Released On Vinyl

October 30, 2013 · Print This Article

U2 plan to release a new record of singles, to be available for sale on Friday, Nov. 29 for Record Store Day’s third annual Black Friday sale. The record will be an exclusive 10,000 copy limited edition issue.

The record will include U2′s recent single, “Ordinary Love,” which was recently featured in the trailer for the upcoming film “Mandella: Long Walk To Freedom.”The band was apparently inspired to write the song after seeing early cuts for the film. U2 befriended Mandela years ago, in support of the progress he made as President of South Africa upon during his presidency.

The record will also include a B-Side of the song Breathe from the band’s 2009 album “No Line On The Horizon,” which is listed on the Record Store Day website as the ‘Mandela version.’

After such a long time without any musical activity from U2, it’s great to hear news of real activity from the band leading up to the hopeful release of their next album.
