U2 Release Reimagined Version Of ‘With Or Without You’

U2 recently released a reimagined and re-recorded version of “With Or Without You,” the second reimagined track to be released from the band’s upcoming collection Songs of Surrender.

Songs Of Surrender, curated and produced by The Edge, features the band revisiting some of the most celebrated songs of their 40-plus year career, including “One,” “Beautiful Day,” “Sunday Bloody Sunday” and “Invisible,” for a musical reimagining resulting in a completely new recording of each track.

Explaining about the collection, The Edge said, “The fact is that most of our work was written and recorded when we were a bunch of very young men. Those songs mean something quite different to us now. Some have grown with us. Some we have outgrown.”

“But we have not lost sight of what propelled us to write those songs in the first place,” he continued. “The essence of those songs is still in us, but how to reconnect with that essence when we have moved on, and grown so much?”

Songs Of Surrender, a collection of 40 seminal U2 songs, will be released on March 17.

It is available to pre-order in a series of different colored vinyl formats  HERE.

Each one features 16 tracks on 2 heavyweight LP’s, liner notes from Edge & a bespoke finish on the cover.
