OTHER NOTES
Window in the Skies was the second and final single released from the 18 Singles compilation album.  It was newly recorded by Rick Rubin for inclusion in this compilation.

The single was released in Europe on New Year's Day 2007.  Due to this being the holiday season in other areas, there were delays in the single arriving in other regions, appearing on January 16 in Canada and expected on February 7 in Japan.

After the release of The Saints are Coming just as a single CD, this release once again returned to the format of two audio CDs and a DVD which U2 have been following since 2001.  The B-Sides were two tracks taken from live performances during the 2006 Vertigo tour, and the track U2 recorded with Leonard Cohen for inclusion in the film "Leonard Cohen: I'm Your Man" which was previously released on the soundtrack to the film.

Of interest to chat watchers, Windows did not debut at number one in Canada, instead it debuted at number three.  Holding the number one spot that week?  U2 and Green Day with The Saints are Coming.  It would rise to take the number one position the following week however.

As part of the promotion for this single, a cardboard wallet was made available by mail to residents of the UK who had previously registered with Island Records.  These were sent out by mail and were not available in other regions.  Shipped flat, they could be folded into a box which would hold the two CDs and the DVD released in the UK.  The front of the wallet and the back of the wallet both feature similar artwork to the single.
