U2 are set to release a extras packed version of their 1991 album ‘Achtung Baby’ later this year.

Celebrating 20 years since the release of the band’s seventh studio album, the reissue will come in a variety of formats, including an extras laden Uber Deluxe Edition, which will include six CDs, four DVDs, five 7” singles, 16 art prints, an 84 page hardback book, Propaganda fan club magazine, four badges, a sticker sheet and last but by no means least, a replica of Bono’s ‘The Fly’ sunglasses. This version will be released in a numbered box which takes the form of a magnetic puzzle.

Next down the scale is the Super Deluxe version, which will include all of the CDs, DVDs and art prints from the Uber Deluxe version as well as a 92-page hardback book.‘Achtung Baby’ will also be available in a vinyl box set and a simple remastered version of the album will also be released, reports Rolling Stone.

"If you pile a lot of extra material and packaging and design work into a super-duper box set, there are people who will pay quite a lot for it, so you can budget it at a very high level and pump up the value," said U2’s manager Paul McGuinness to Rolling Stone earlier this year.
