U2 Issuing Major ‘All That You Can’t Leave Behind’ Retrospective


Coming on October 30th are a clutch of 20th anniversary editions of U2's 2000 Grammy Award-winning All That You Can't Leave Behind album. Billboard reported the releases will feature a new 12-track remaster of the album with additional track "The Ground Beneath Her Feet," and a 51-track super deluxe box set. The band has just posted an acoustic version of "Stuck In A Moment You Can't Get Out Of."

All That You Can't Leave Behind was released on November 17th, 2000 and featured such U2 classics as "Beautiful Day," "Stuck In A Moment You Can't Get Out Of," "Elevation" and "Walk On." The album was produced by Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois, and topped out at Number Three on the Billboard 200 albums chart.

We spoke to Bono around the time of the original release of All That You Can't Leave Behind and he admitted the band was making music that was decidedly going against the grain at the time: ["We knew that this was a record that was against the odds, and that a lot of people would be thinking, 'Y'know, U2, they've gone all arty,' and, y'know, 'They can live off their past now, or else they'll come up with some esoteric idea of the future.' And we thought we gotta really make something that feels really present — that's not about what's fashionable this week, but what's about the moment you're in right now."] SOUNDCUE (:23 OC: . . . in right now)
