Every year, the band creates a special edition release for their loyal fans, and this year, the special gift is “U22.” ShockYa has got the scoop on the exclusive and definitive soundtrack to 2011′s impressive U2360° concert.
“U22″ was created with U2 fans’ input. Over a three month period, U2.com subscribers listened to 46 live tracks from the U2360° tour and voted on their favorite 22 tracks. “U22″ has been sequenced and mastered by the U2 themselves and their production team.
This impressive two-disc soundtrack runs over two hours and comes in a deluxe LP-sized book of photos with liner notes from Adam Clayton.
However, you can’t buy this in stores–this CD set is only available to U2.com fanclub subscribers, so make sure to get your subscription! Fanclub subscribers can also download twelve songs not on “U22,” including bonus track “Unknown Caller.” Subscribers also get to see exclusive content from the concert. Cool right?
Here’s what some of the U2.com fans have to say about “U22″:
“Really blown away. Spectacular. From the concept of the vote through the beautiful package…just great.”
“The whole package is perfect. Great song choices and I feel like I had a small part in it. What a wonderful tribute to the fans! This is definitive U2!”
“Just got mine. LP sized book with fantastic photos and a nice track by track commentary from Adam. Sounds amazing and the song choices work perfectly!”
“I’m blown away at how this exceeded all expectations. Album-sized, great notes and pictures, and that’s the icing on top of the best live album U2 has ever put out.”
