Nirvana’s Nevermind is not the only classic album that is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. U2’s groundbreaking Achtung Baby is also completing two decades of existence and will receive similar honors as the long-player by the iconic Seattle trio, as the band is planning to re-release it in a deluxe package. As Rolling Stone points out, the reissue will boast a plethora of unseen footage and rare versions of some of their most famous hits. U2 guitarist The Edge said:

“There’s some very interesting alternative versions that we discovered of songs that wouldn’t have seen the light of day” and described them as being “like ‘Achtung Baby’ out of focus.”

Furthermore, the band’s manager, Paul McGuinness, added:

“If you pile a lot of extra material and packaging and design work into a super-duper box set, there are people who will pay quite a lot for it, so you can budget it at a very high level and pump up the value.”

In addition, U2 is also intending to release an app for the iPad to accompany the album’s anniversary. Stay tuned.
