U2 have announced plans to release previously unheard material in a special deluxe edition to commemorate the 25th anniversary of ‘The Unforgettable Fire’.

The band have said they want to include songs that they recorded while making the album, but that didn’t make it onto the record.

The Edge told BBC Radio One: “I listened to some tracks that we’re gonna release with the new ‘Unforgettable Fire’ reissue, some new songs that we discovered that we’d recorded, back in that era – the ’80s – that we’re gonna put out. And they sound amazing.”

Bono spoke about one of these tracks ‘Disappearing Act’: “It’s 25 years ago, the drums, the bass and the guitar. And now, the voices. It is a strange, weird thing. And it’s going out with ‘The Unforgettable Fire’ reissue, but no one’s heard it.”

The re-mastered version of ‘The Unforgettable Fire’ is out later this year.
