2011 is the anniversary year of the most darkish, introspective, naughty and awarded album of Bono’s band. Q commissioned an Achtung Baby tribute album, entitled ‘AHK-toong BAY-bi Covered’, to be included in the magazine’s December 2011 issue. It will feature performances by ‘the world’s most exciting artists & an exclusive interview with the band’. You can listen to a sad ‘One’ covered by Damien Rice or Jack White’s version of ‘Love is Blindness’, you can go ‘Until the End of the World’ with Patti Smith or discover the ‘Mysterious Ways’ of Snow Patrol. Nine Inch Nails sing at a Zoo Station, Depeche Mode are So Cruel, Gavin Friday tries to catch The Fly and Shirley Manson asks … Who’s Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses?
By the way … who’s gonna tame the heart of thee? I was captured by Garbage!
