U2’s Songs of Surrender comes out on March 17. How many variations of one album do we really need?
I’m a lifelong U2 fan and I’ve collected plenty of their stuff over the years, but even I’m scratching my head at the bewildering number of variations in which Songs of Surrender will be released. If you’re a completist, this is going to get very, very expensive. More detail here.

And the clear variant has 4 more songs than the others.
Here’s an even better question – why do we need to issue music in 2023 on a format from the early days of recorded music? We’re not bringing back UHF dials on our televisions, or rotary dial telephones. The vinyl fetish is so weird. That would cut out at least half the versions!
