On November 24 for Record Store Day's "Black Friday" event, U2 will release "The Blackout" on a single 12" vinyl record.

The limited edition single is being distributed as part of Jack White's "Third Man Records" label. It will contain the album version of "The Blackout" as well as a remix from Irish producer Jacknife Lee. Black vinyl versions will be sold at various independent record stores participating in RSD Black Friday, while even more rare colored vinyl copies will be limited for sale only in the cities of Nashville and Detroit (where Jack White's Third Man's stores are located). Additionally, two yet unnamed retail stores in the U.K. and Ireland will also carry the copies of colored vinyl).

In an interview conducted in September with Rolling Stone Magazine, Bono stated that the song "started off its life about a more personal apocalypse, some events in my life that more than reminded me of my mortality but then segued into the political dystopia that we're heading towards now."

U2's forthcoming album "Songs of Experience" is set to be released on December 1, 2017 worldwide.
