Background Information

This box set of Little Steven releases was released December 6, 2019. The set includes seven coloured vinyl albums, as well as four CDs. The coloured vinyl are in a splatter pattern, and are in a variety of colours. The set is limited to just 1000 copies worldwide. Each of the vinyl releases will be packaged inside their own individual artwork, and packaged in the box. The four CDs will be placed into a 12-inch sized insert with liner notes.

U2 is involved in the release on a number of the discs. The set includes the Sun City album, which included Bono on the title track, “Sun City”, as well as various mixes of that song, as well as his original solo version of “Silver and Gold.” Adam Clayton worked with Little Steven on his 1999 album, Born Again Savage which is one of the discs included here. This is the first time that the Born Again Savage album has been released on vinyl. previously only being released on CD.

Is there new U2 material on the set? Not that we are aware of at this time, all of this content that we know U2 is part of was released on the original releases. However, one of the bonus tracks on CD is a previously unreleased track, credited to Artists Against Apartheid, called “Soweto Nights.” It is not yet announced if Bono is present on this newly released song from the original recording sessions. Of note to some, is that the second remix of “Sun City”, the “Version II” mix, is listed as an edit here on the vinyl and digital releases, so may be shorter than that on the original releases.

As part of this release, the bonus tracks and albums will be released in a series of digital albums, staggered with a release each week leading up to the release of the box set. Born Again Savage gets a digital release on November 22, 2019, with an extra bonus track, a solo track from 2019, which does not have any U2 appearance on the song. On December 6, the new version of Sun City will be released digitally including “Silver and Gold,” three mixes of “Sun City” (the regular album version, Version II – Edit, and Last Remix.) The newly released “Soweto Nights” will be part of this digital release at that time.
