U2 Achtung Baby reissue

U2‘s Achtung Baby turns 30 this week, and to highlight the occasion, the band is releasing a 30th anniversary edition reissue of the album featuring a bunch of bonus tracks. The standard vinyl edition of the album—in both black and colored 180-gram vinyl (as seen above)—will be out on November 19. The limited, numbered deluxe vinyl version includes an 8-page booklet as well as a 60-by-60-centimeter poster.

An expanded digital version will follow on December 3, featuring 22 b-sides, rarities and previously unreleased tracks.

The band is also partnering again with artist Thierry Noir, who designed the Trabant cars on their ZOO TV tour, for a newly painted car to be showcased at Hansa Studios and a new mural on a section of the Berlin Wall. And Sirius XM will also air an Achtung Baby special program featuring interviews with band members and collaborators including Daniel Lanois, Flood and Anton Corbijn.
