|On May 4, 2009, U2 released the second single, Magnificent,
from the No Line on the Horizon album. In a suprising move, the only
format released in the UK was a 7" vinyl single, and no CD singles.
Instead, three EPs of digital music were made available in the UK iTunes
store that day labelled, "Magnificent (With 2 Remixes)", "Magnificent (With
3 Remixes)" and "Magnificent (With Live Tracks & Remix)". These
each contained different tracks.
A few weeks later, the remixes of Magnificent would appear in the USA
and Canadian iTunes stores, with the same 'cover art' as the UK Remixes.
This digital single would contain the four Magnificent remixes found on
the UK release, as well as the Dave Aude' mix of the track which was not
released in the UK.
A physical single is listed for June in the
USA, which contained ten of the remixes listed above, also at that time
another 'digital only' release appeared for the US market, this time with
thirteen tracks in mp3 format on the site masterbeat.com including two
previously unreleased instrumental versions and yet another radio edit
which had not been seen before.
There has been one other 'mix' of Magnificent which has been found on
the internet through Dave Audé's sight, the Dave Audé Radio
Edit at a time of 4:33. Thus far it hasn't been included on any releases
commercial or promotional issued by U2.
