Download Remastered Joshua Tree - Monday
The Joshua Tree, remastered from the original analogue tapes, begins worldwide release next week. You can download the deluxe edition, including b-sides and demos from the original album sessions, exclusively from iTunes
in the UK this Monday.
In 1987, The Joshua Tree reached Number 1 around the world and won a Grammy for "Album of the Year", while U2 won the Brit Award for Best International Act and Time Magazine put the band on its cover, proclaiming them "Rock's Hottest Ticket". Including the singles I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For, Where The Streets Have No Name and With Or Without You, The Joshua Tree went on to sell in excess of 20 million.
"There has been continuous demand from U2 fans to have The Joshua Tree properly re-mastered," says Paul McGuinness. "As always, the band had to make sure it was right, and now it is."
In North America the four physical formats of the album will be available from next Tuesday - in the UK, release will be December 3rd.
