Bono announces Achtung Baby covers album
Jack White, Depeche Mode, Patti Smith and Damien Rice are among the artists on a forthcoming tribute album honoring the 20th anniversary of U2’s Achtung Baby at a press conference this afternoon for the U2 documentary 'From the Sky Down' at the Toronto International Film Festival.
The album, commissioned by Q magazine, was unveiled by Bono, he said:
"Jack White does ‘Love Is Blindness,' Depeche Mode do ‘So Cruel,' Patti Smith did ‘Until the End of the World,' Damien Rice does ‘One.’ It just goes on. And it’s strange, because when I hear the album, when U2 do it, all I hear is what’s wrong with it. But when I heard all these artists doing it, I thought, ‘It’s really good.'"
