Over the years a unique community of artists have shared a recording studio with U2.

From folk to punk, from country to blues and soul, these extraordinary collaborations have spanned musical genres... but until now they've never been collected together.

'U2:DUALS' is a specially commissioned collection capturing U2 in collaboration with other artists over three decades. From the Soweto Gospel Choir to Allan Ginsberg, Willie Nelson to Mary J Blige and Mick Jagger to Green Day, the band have curated a collection of 'duals' which highlight the remarkable range of artists they've worked with.

A few of the fifteen tracks have featured on studio albums, but many have had only limited previous availability and some are released here for the first time.

We think it's a pretty special collection.
