As I mentioned in response to that, yes. It was included on the Album in the UK at the end.

finally guys: this bonus track is NO speculation, but a fact. quoting universal music:

Digi pack CD (Digipak format - limited edition with album CD, 36 page colour booklet and fold out poster. Features access to exclusive downloadable Anton Corbijn film. This format includes the extra track featured on the UK standard edition)

If that's the most expensive one, it had better come with a DVD and not a download.

For example, Summer Rain was a bonus track to ATYCLB, but it was put on a seperate CD. It's not like they make different albums for different countries.
Forgive me if this was stated elsewhere, but the bonus track on ATYCLB wasn't "Summer Rain" - it was "The Ground Beneath Her Feet", which was originally featured on the "Million Dollar Hotel" soundtrack.

This practice started with "Pop". As others wrote:

Pop - Holy Joe
80's Best Of - One Tree Hill
ATYCLB - The Ground Beneath Her Feet
90's Best Of - The Fly
HTDAAB - Fast Cars

Of them, only "Fast Cars" was unique in that it wasn't featured on a prior album or as a b-side.

And, as someone else wrote, the reason is economic. CD's in the U.S. are relatively cheap (especially at places like Best Buy). In other countries, though, it's cheaper to buy an import. In order to entice consumers to buy the product locally, an extra track is placed on the CD that isn't available on the import.

I imagine this will be done again. Personally, I don't have a major issue with it. Some of the songs listed above do fit as a closer. And as a collector, it makes it fun getting a slightly different version of the album.

Well depending on which camp you are in...

If you consider Passengers a U2 album then it started then with Bottoms(Zoo Station mix)...

That's a good point.

If OS1 is considered, then this pattern actually started in 1995. So why the complaints? It's not new.

^ i see both arguements. The purist "album" concept versus the "we get an extra song!" concept.

Either way is good for me. and hey, looks like we get an extra song!

If you want to be THAT detailed, How about the hidden track on Zooropa?

Maybe the trend goes back to 1993?

^Ah, but they've only placed that hidden track in early versions and on the reamaster, so it's a bonus track. So, they're doing since the 1st album
End of discussion

No, that's missing the point. Every country got that version.

^Not true. If we're talking about the siren at the end of The Wanderer, not every country got that. I've got a copy of Zooropa that doesn't have it, at least.
