U2 To Release New Album in Five Versions

Melissa Goldstein

Among the news that has emerged surrounding the release of U2's newest album (will.i.am producing?, Bono's best lyrics ever and the re-invention of rock as we know it? ), is the fact that their March 3 release of No Line On the Horizon will be available in five different versions.

Beyond the standard CD and vinyl formats, Horizon will be offered in three additional limited editions [via Billboard.com].

There's the digi-pack version (a sort-of "Saturn" to the "Honda Accord" of the aforementioned standard versions) that lists for $35.98 and features the CD in a cardboard folded sleeve with a 36-page booklet, a fold-out poster, and a new film from director Anton Corbijn "featuring the music of U2," which is available as a download.

The "Saturn with seat warmers" version is yours for $49.98, and comes with "a special 60-page soft cover magazine-style book," plus the downloadable Corbijn film.

The most tricked-out of the bunch, the "Saturn that doubles as a hovercraft" box set, comes with a 60-page hardcover book, the Corbijn film on DVD, and a second poster. Because for real fans, one wall-ready image of Bono sporting his Matrix-like shades is simply not enough.
