U2’s The Joshua Tree has been meticulously remastered from the original analogue master tapes to mark 20 years since its release.
“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.”
The album will be available in four formats:
â€¢ A standard CD featuring liner notes from Bill Flanagan, lyrics and unseen photographs from long time collaborator Anton Corbijn.
â€¢ A double 12″ gatefold vinyl format, with the original album pressed across two 180 gram audiophile discs.
â€¢ A deluxe edition including a second CD of b-sides and demos from the original album sessions.
â€¢ A limited edition box set containing two CD’s and a DVD featuring The Joshua Tree Tour live from the Hippodrome in Paris and other rare video footage.
