Jack White, Patti Smith and Damian Rice would be covering songs from U2's "Achtung Baby" for an upcoming 20th anniversary tribute album. Nine Inch Nails, The Killers, Depeche Mode, Garbage, Snow Patrol and more will also appear on the album, cleverly dubbed "Ahk-toong Bay-bi", just to help out those who can’t pronounce the first word of the album properly.
Q Magazine will be releasing the tribute album along with their new issue which is out on October 26th. The full tracklisting for the album is down below.
To further celebrate the 20th anniversary of the album, the U2 documentary, "From The Sky Down", will premiere on Showtime on October 29th.
Thanks to CoS, check out Jack White’s version of "Love Is Blindness". Here’s a hint... it’s good. You can hear it below.
