With punk, you could pick up a guitar and you didn't have to play it very well. But with hip-hop, you didn't even have to play badly -- you just got a record of somebody who could play. -- Bono

U2 To Release "11 O'Clock Tick Tock" Single for Record Store Day



On April 18, U2 will once again participate in Record Store Day with a new vinyl re-release. Their 1980 single “11 O’Clock Tick Tock” will be released as a 40th Anniversary Remastered edition. The single, pressed onto transparent blue 12" vinyl, will feature two unreleased live tracks: "Touch" and "Twilight" from the band's September 22, 1980 show in London. Tracks from this show have previously been released as part of the 2008 Deluxe Edition of Boy. An article by NME also suggests that the single will include the full-length version of "11 O'Clock Tick Tock." 

This release will mark the 11th Record Store Day that U2 has participated in since 2010. This remastered single follows in the footsteps of their refreshed U2 Three release for 2019’s Black Friday Record Store Day. Much like that EP, "11 O'Clock Tick Tock" will have refreshed graphics reminscient of the band's original visual aesthetics. Additionally, this year's RSD releases are in partnership with War Child UK, a charity dedicated to supporting children of the world harmed by conflict. If previous years are any indication, there should be a large number of pressings available worldwide, but we’ll keep you updated as more information is released.
