RTÉ 2FM, in association with Universal Music Ireland, has invited some of the biggest names in Irish music to re-create U2’s The Joshua Tree in celebration of the album’s 30th anniversary.

Artists including Gavin James, Kodaline, AllTvvins and The Academic will do their own versions of the 11 songs.

The tribute album, called The Joshua Tree – New Roots, will support the children’s hospice LauraLynn.

RTÉ 2FM is looking for listeners to design the album sleeve for this special edition. The deadline to send material to u2@rte.ie is Aug. 31. More information is available here.

U2 have given their permission for the album, which will be released in October.
