"Summer of Love" - U2


Track Listing:

Background Information

The next U2 single being released worldwide is “Summer of Love” which is being released on digital store fronts and streaming sites worldwide on August 8, 2018. The first release to promote the single is a four track remix EP with remixes by Robin Schulz, TILT and Danny Stubbs, Howie B, and HP Hoeger and Rusty Egan. The tracks are being digitally released and there will not be a physical release at this time.

Robin Schultz is a German DJ and record producer who has been working in the music business since 2007. We believe this is his first time remixing U2. TILT & Danny Stubbs work under the Perfecto label, and an early working version of their remix of “Summer of Love” was first heard in December, and has been played in mix shows including Paul Oakenfold’s Perfecto Podcasts. This mix being included on the single on Friday is a newly constructed version of that mix. Howie B is a name that U2 fans should find familiar, he worked with the band starting with the Passengers album in 1995, and again extensively on Pop in 1997. HP Hoeger and Rusty Egan were the producers behind the most recent commercial release of “Love is Bigger Than Anything in its Way.” We recently interviewed Egan about his work on that single, the version being released on Friday is a different mix from the one we have previously heard.

The full single will be available for purchase or to stream on major services starting on Friday, August 10, 2018. Be wary of any physical promotional CDRs as we are told that there are none planned at this time.

The earlier version of the mix from TILT & Danny Stubbs and an earlier version of the mix by HP Hoeger and Rusty Egan can be heard in the links above. Rusty Egan will appear on RTE Pulse on Friday, with Christian Homan at 6pm Dublin time to discuss his U2 mixes.

“Summer of Love” is U2’s sixth commercial single from Songs of Experience. It follows commercial releases of “You’re The Best Thing About Me,” “The Blackout” (Record Store Day), “Get Out of Your Own Way,” “Lights of Home,” and the recent “Love is Bigger Than Anything in its Way” releases. Additionally “American Soul” had been released to radio in Europe, and “Summer of Love” has been released previously in The Netherlands for radio play in January of this year. The last album to have six commercial singles from one album was 1997’s Pop.
