U2’s eighth studio album was released in July 1993 and hit Number 1 in the UK, USA, Ireland, Japan, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Sweden, Austria, France, Switzerland, Germany, Holland, Norway, Denmark and Iceland.
Produced by Flood, Brian Eno and The Edge, the 10 tracks on Zooropa - inspired by the band’s experiences on the Zoo TV Tour – include singles ‘Numb’, ‘Lemon’ and ‘Stay (Faraway, So Close!)’ and were recorded in just 6 weeks in early 1993. And the 1994 Grammy Awards saw the band take home the prize for Best Alternative Music Album.
And to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the album’s release, this vinyl reissue will see Zooropa released in a 2LP format for the first time ever, to include two mixes of ‘Lemon’ and ‘Numb’
