U2 Announce 20th-Anniversary Reissue of All That You Can’t Leave Behind

In a development that everyone saw coming but is no less delightful, U2 will reissue All That You Can’t Leave Behind on October 30, 2020 to mark the album’s twentieth anniversary.

Island and UMG are planning to release the new remaster of All That You Can’t Leave Behind in a variety of formats, all of which will include the additional track “The Ground Beneath Her Feet.” As with past U2 reissues, All That You Can’t Leave Behind will be released in standard, deluxe and super deluxe editions on CD, vinyl and digital. These include:

  • A single CD of the remastered studio album.
  • A two-CD set that includes the remastered studio album, plus 13 tracks from Elevation Tour shows recorded live in Boston in June 2001.
  • The remastered studio album presented across two 180g black vinyl discs (including a 12”x12” 20-page booklet and download card).
  • A CD box set with five CDs (the remastered album, 9 B-sides/outtakes, 19 tracks from Elevation Tour shows recorded in Boston in June 2001 and 11 remixed singles, 4 of which were previously unreleased). The set also includes a 12”x12” 20-page booklet and a 32-page hardback book featuring previously-unseen photos by Anton Corbijn, as well as a double-sided poster.
  • A deluxe LP box set that includes everything from the deluxe CD box set described above, along with the remastered album, B-sides/outtakes, live Elevation Tour tracks and remixed singles presented on 11 discs of 180g vinyl. A download card will also be included. 

To celebrate the announcement, U2 today released an acoustic version of “Stuck In A Moment You Can’t Get Out Of” with a new lyric video featuring black and white travel-related imagery. The text of the final chorus appears to be in Bono’s handwriting. The Edge will also discuss the release with Jo Whiley on her BBC Radio 2 program today at 7:00 p.m.

All That You Can’t Leave Behind is now available for pre-order on U2.com, where you can see full track listings and photos of the packaging. Prices range from $11.99 to $209.99.

Of interest to hardcore fans: the remastered B-sides include “Summer Rain,” “Always,” “Big Girls Are Best” and “Don’t Take Your Guns To Town.” Outtakes include “Levitate,” “Love You Like Mad” and “Flower Child,” along with “Stateless,” a track that was featured on The Million Dollar Hotel’s soundtrack, plus the aforementioned acoustic version of “Stuck In A Moment You Can’t Get Out Of.” Four of the remixes are previously-unheard: “Walk On (Wyclef Jean Remix),” “New York (Carnegie’s Deli Mix),” “New York (Superman Kicks Ativan Mix)” and “When I Look At The World (Picante Remix).”
