U2 will release an album of remixes, dubbed Artificial Horizon, to members of their fan club in late January 2010, according to the band's official Website. While the track list hasn't been revealed in full, U2 promise that Trent Reznor's version of "Vertigo," producer Jacknife Lee's "Fast Cars" remix and David Holmes' take on "Beautiful Day" will be among Artificial Horizon's 13 songs, which span from the Grand Jury Mix of ''If God Will Send His Angels" in 1997 to the Fish Out Of Water mix of "Get On Your Boots."
Artificial Horizon comes 15 years after the band's last fanclub-only remix album Melon: Remixes for Propaganda, which featured Paul Oakenfold, Steve Osbourne and Massive Attack reworking tracks off Achtung Baby and Zooropa. Previous U2 fan club-only releases include 2009's B side compilation Medium, Rare & Remastered, 2005's live disc U2.COMmunication and 2006's Zoo TV Live.
Fan club members also get first dibs on the band's concert tickets through a special pre-sale, and considering that U2 — one of Rolling Stone's Artists of the Decade — have already begun mapping out the 2010 dates for their massive 360° Tour, joining the fan club might be a good $50 investment to help score tickets to the stadium shows.
