// About 'U218 Singles'
U218 Singles is a compilation album which spans U2's entire career which was released on November 20, 2006.
The album features sixteen of the band's well known hits and two new songs: Window in the Skies and The Saints Are Coming, a collaboration with Green Day.
The new tracks were recorded in London's Abbey Road Studios in September 2006 and they are both produced by Rick Rubin.
U218 will be released on CD and 12" vinyl and as a full length DVD featuring the single promo videos. The collection will also be available as a limited edition CD with a bonus DVD of 10 tracks recorded live in Milan, Italy on the Vertigo//05 tour.
With a compilation album like this it is obvious that choices had to be made: Which songs are to be included? It's interesting to see that the album features no less than four tracks from 2000's All That You Can't Leave Behind and only two tracks from the 90's. (Sweetest Thing is originally a b-side from 1987.)
The two 90's songs are both from Achtung Baby, there are no songs from 1993's Zooropa or 1997's Pop on U218 Singles.
The compilation also does not include any songs from U2's first two albums: Boy and October.
