U2 are giving U.S. independent record stores a big boost this holiday season by releasing a new three-track vinyl EP on Friday (26Nov10).
Wide Awake In Europe will be released exclusively to select record stores on America's busiest shopping day of the year, traditionally called Black Friday.
Bass player Adam Clayton tells WENN, "My local record shop introduced me to music I didn’t know and I might never have discovered."
Only 5,000 copies of Wide Awake In Europe have been pressed. The EP features renditions of fan favourites Mercy, Moment of Surrender and I'll Go Crazy If I Don't Go Crazy Tonight.
