Background Information

Two weeks after the digital release in the UK, a digital EP was released in North America for “Magnificent”, the second single off of “No Line on the Horizon”. It featured a remix that had not previously been released, the Dave Audé Club Remix. The single was released on iTunes in the USA on May 18, 2009, and in Canada the following day. This initial release featured five tracks, and was only available at iTunes, all remixes of the title track.

Also with the release of this digital single came word that for the first time in many years, a full fledged physical single would be released in the USA on June 9, 2009 featuring a number of remixes. At first stores listed this release with the same five tracks that were appearing on the US iTunes store. Later the track listing would be expanded to match that of the ten track promotional CD that was circulating. Indeed, when the single was finally released it contained the ten tracks that are found on the promotional single. When the single was released, on June 9, 2009, masterbeat.com started offering a 13 track version of “Magnificent” for sale on their site. On June 14th, 2009, masterbeat.com added an additional track, “Magnificent (Richard Vission Solmatic Remix)” bringing the number of tracks on the digital single to 14, and this remix was an exclusive to masterbeat.com that has not appeared elsewhere for sale. The “Magnificent (Richard Vission Solmatic Remix)” was also made available to stream via Richard Vission’s own website.

The masterbeat.com single of “Magnificent” was released at 320kbps in mp3 format. The iTunes 5-track single was released at 256kbps. Both were accompanied with the same artwork used for downloads in the UK, a closeup of the single artwork focusing on the birds.
