To mark the 20th anniversary of U2‘s ‘Achtung Baby,’ The Killers, Depeche Mode, The Fray and other notable artists have contributed to a start-to-finish reinterpretation of the classic album.

‘AHK-toong BAY-bi Covered,’ also featuring a remix of U2’s original version of ‘Even Better Than the Real Thing,’ will be included in Q magazine‘s 25th anniversary issue, which hits newsstands October 26.

The covers project has made quite an impression on U2 singer Bono.

“It’s strange, because when I hear the album, when U2 do it, all I hear is what’s wrong with it,” he says. “But when I heard all these artists doing it, I thought, ‘It’s really good.'”

The mother load of new ‘Achtung Baby’-related projects arrives November 1 with the release of multiple 20th-anniversary album packages. Among them is a super-deluxe edition that includes a DVD copy of the documentary ‘From the Sky Down.’ Eager fans can check it out a few days in advance when the film airs October 29 on Showtime.
