U2 are set to release a new remix album, Artificial Horizon, this January, and for the Irish band it was a chance to unleash new material from their vaults.

According to the quartet's website, the 13-track album will be released to members of their fan club only, and will feature remixes of Bono and Co.'s latter-day work courtesy of Trent Reznor ("Vertigo") and Justice ("Get On Your Boots"), plus by L.A. mix-master Danny Saber ("Happiness is a Warm Gun"), Irish DJ/composer/soundtrack maven David Holmes ("Beautiful Day"), and super producer Jacknife Lee ("Fast Cars").

There's even a never-before-released Hot Chip remix of "City Of Blinding Lights," U2's ode to New York City off their 2004 album How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb.

Artificial Horizon -- a sequel of sorts to 1995's fan-club Melon remix collection –- will be shipped to club members late next month, and is just the latest treat for members following exclusive releases like ZOO TV Live and Go Home: Live From Slane Castle, Ireland. Click here to sign up.
