U2 releasing 'Hold Me, Thrill Me...' vinyl for RSD Black Friday 2018


Hold Me, Thrill Me... RSD Black Friday 2018 release

U2 will again participate in RSD Black Friday, the annual post-Thanksgiving sales event aimed at helping independent record stores. This year's special release is a limited vinyl edition of "Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me" with different versions of the song on both sides. One side features the "Gotham Experience Remix," which is the version that's heard during intermission on the Experience + Innocence tour. It features vocals from Gavin Friday and Arcade Fire's Regine Chassagne. The other side features "a new remaster of the original song."

The RSD Black Friday website lists this is a limited edition release of only 7,000 copies. But it's also a "RSD First" release, which means it might be available at other outlets/retailers at some point in the future.

RSD Black Friday happens this year on Friday, November 23. You can see a list of participating stores on the RSD website.

UPDATE, October 10: U2 is also participating in a new event/holiday in the UK called National Album Day. The band will release a special gold-colored vinyl version of The Joshua Tree and a blue vinyl version of Zooropa. National Album Day is this Saturday, October 13, but you can pre-order both albums now through U2.com.
