On Saturday you'll be able to purchase a special 12 inch vinyl 3 track single of "The Europa EP" at participating record shops in select countries around the world.

With only 5,000 copies in circulation, The Europa EP features artwork inspired by Charlie Chaplin's 1940 film "The Great Dictator" mixed with U2's 1993 Zooropa album. The cover art also features the figure 130, in celebration of Chaplin's 130th birthday which falls on April 16.

From Recordstoreday.com:

Side A features the previously unreleased opening from the recent eXPERIENCE + iNNOCENCE European Tour - Charlie Chaplin's final speech from the movie The Great Dictator, underscored with a unique musical mash up of 'Love Is All We Have Left' with 1993 classic 'Zooropa' - which leads into a 'live' performance of New Year's Day from Dublin in November 2018. Side B has two 'Euro'-tinged remixes: St. Francis Hotel's mix of 'New Year's Day' and Jon Pleased Wimmin's Euromantic mix of 'Love Is All We Have Left'. The artwork is an eXPERIENCED Chaplinesque homage to the artwork of the Zooropa Album.

Record Store Day is an annual event created in 2008 and held on one Saturday every April and every "Black Friday" in November to "celebrate the culture of the independently owned record store". Music fans, artists, and thousands of independent record stores across the planet take part in the celebration.
