U2 releases All That You Can’t Leave Behind for the album’s 20th anniversary on October 30, 2020. Twenty years exactly after the intiial release on October 30, 2000. The album will be released in a variety of formats including box sets, vinyl, digital and CD.
The band has been releasing a lot of material from the album for promotion. We’re collecting together everything here for you in case you have missed anything…
The release is an audio only release, and some of the tracks have been made available already. At digital store fronts and streaming services the following tracks are available:
- “Stuck in a Moment” (Acoustic) [Sep. 10, 2020]
- “Levitate” [Sep. 25, 2020]
- “Stateless” [Sep. 25, 2020]
- “Beautiful Day” (Live from Boston) [Oct. 9, 2020]
- “Stay (Faraway, So Close!)” (Live from Boston) [Oct. 9, 2020]
Of special note – if you view some of these tracks on Spotify they come with fun animated videos to accompany the songs. And these work now even if you are looking at the older version of All That You Can’t Leave Behind.
