LOS ANGELES, Feb. 28, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Island Records, Interscope and UMC today announce U2: The Europa EP, a new 3-track EP to celebrate Record Store Day on Saturday April 13th, 2019.
The Europa EP: Side A features an exclusive new mix of previously unreleased material from U2’s recent eXPERIENCE + iNNOCENCE Tour: Charlie Chaplin’s electrifying speech from the movie The Great Dictator (1940) underscored with a mash-up of Songs Of Experience album track ‘Love Is All We Have Left’ and 1993 classic ‘Zooropa’, leading into a performance of ‘New Year’s Day’ recorded live in Dublin on November 5th last year.
Side B is comprised of two ‘Euro’-tinged remixes: St. Francis Hotel’s mix of the original album version of ‘New Year’s Day’ and Jon Pleased Wimmin’s Euromantic mix of ‘Love Is All We Have Left’.
The EP cover art is a Chaplinesque homage to the Europe-themed artwork of U2’s 1993 album Zooropa and features the figure 130, in celebration of Chaplin’s 130th birthday which falls on April 16th, 2019.
