Listen to Jack White, Damian Rice cover U2; The Smiths get covers tribute album
Nine Inch Nails, Depeche Mode, The Killers also on U2's 'AHK-toong Covered'
In the same week that its announced Bob Dylan is getting a tribute covers album (with help from Ke$ha, no less...), The Smiths are getting theirs, while U2 covers from Jack White and Damian Rice are unearthed.
As previously reported, U2 is making a big fat deal out of their "Achtung Baby" 20th anniversary reissue, and a covers set is intended to enhance that celebration. Q Magazine will be bowing "AHK-toong BAY-bi Covered" -- really, that's its title -- on Nov. 1, and a full tracklist is now available. Nine Inch Nails (!!!), Depeche Mode, The Killers, Garbage and The Fray join previously announced talent like Jack White, Damian Rice and Patti Smith on the 12-song set. A new mix of "Even Better Than the Real Thing" by Jacques Lu Cont is in the mix, coinciding with the band's effort to launch that song as a "new" single from "Achtung."
"AHK-toong BAY-bi Covered" tracklist is below.
With that, fans can already hear White's creepy and fantastic take on "Love Is Blindness," plus Rice's solemn "One," which will have you sightlessly clamoring for your heart in whatever dark place Rice's tired albatross carted it off to and dropped it.
Meanwhile, The Smiths, too, have a cool combo of characters tackling their tunes in "Please, Please, Please: A Tribute to the Smiths." The 20-track collection will be out on Dec. 13 and features Stars, Sixpence None the Richer, Immaculate Noise favorite William Fitzsimmons, Girl in a Coma, Built to Spill's Doug Martsch and Telekinesis. I do not know who Kitten is, but the name delights me.
Pre-orders for the Moz-lovers is up now at American Laundromat.
