Just in case you thought we ran out of notable albums from 20 years ago to remember in 2011, it's now time to memorialize U2's Achtung Baby. The band announced a few months ago that it will re-release Achtung as a two-disc collection, box set, and an "uber deluxe" box set on Nov. 1, which U2 teased this summer by opening concerts with several tracks from the record. In non-U2 related Achtung Baby news, British music magazine Q has assembled a star-studded cast that includes Jack White, Nine Inch Nails, The Killers, Depeche Mode, Patti Smith, Garbage, Snow Patrol, and The Fray for a CD of Achtung Baby covers. The disc will be available with the issue of Q coming out Oct. 25, though we're pretty sure it will also pop up somewhere online soon after. You can hear White's version of the album's closer "Love Is Blindness" below. [Via Spin]
