Aaron already put this on the Discography page, but the Japan version of the deluxe CD will include "The Blackout (Jacknife Lee Remix)" as a bonus track.

The track list and formats for SOE have been announced. . . . . . .
*Why in the world is there a remix of Ordinary Love on the deluxe version?
Thanks for posting the details.
I haven't heard this Ordinary Love remix.  But whatever their reason is for putting it on the deluxe version . . . . . . I'm just glad it was released in a format I could legally purchase.  I hate trying to hunt down rare remixes or unreleased tracks.

The track list and formats for SOE have been announced. Vinyl, CD, digital, deluxe, etc.

1. Love Is All We Have Left
2. Lights of Home
3. You're The Best Thing About Me
4. Get Out Of Your Own Way
5. American Soul
6. Summer of Love
7. Red Flag Day
8. The Showman (Little More Better)
9. The Little Things That Give You Away
10. Landlady
11. The Blackout
12. Love is Bigger Than Anything in Its Way
13. 13 (There Is A Light)
Bonus Tracks:
14. Ordinary Love (Extraordinary Mix)
15. Book of Your Heart
16. Lights of Home (St Peter's String Version)
17. You're The Best Thing About Me (U2 Vs. Kygo) [deluxe CD only]

Initial thoughts:
*At 13 tracks this is the most songs on a U2 studio album, the high point was previously 12 with Pop and Achtung Baby (R&H had 17 but only 9 were new studio songs)
*Why in the world is there a remix of Ordinary Love on the deluxe version?
*"13 (There is a Light)" apparently is a reworking of "Song for Someone," so that's more recycled material. But I guess it's a way to tie the Innocence and Experience albums together.

That Milan video doesn't look all that sharp to me. Probably just upconverted from DVD.

I've posted a few upconverted videos with similar results.

Personally, I love "The Blackout" and "The Little Things That Give You Away", but I'm finding it hard to warm to "You're the Best Thing About Me". Even a middling U2 song is better than most band's stuff, but make no mistake, middling (for me) this one is.

I really loved the original Kygo 2016 version.  There's something about this new version that doesn't quite work for me in any of its forms.

The two Best Thing Remixes are both fan made.  The guy who did them is named Justin Duarte (I may have the spelling wrong there, but it's close) and he's communicated with us through the site a couple of times in the past.  He hasn't tried to pass these off as official...but I'm guessing it's been dropped along the way...not sure on the other half of your question...

I really love You're The Best Thing About Me
I find myself hearing its melodies in my head almost every day.  I love all the versions made available so far.  I also love The Little Things That Give You Away and The Blackout.  I never thought I would still love U2's music after so many years.

For comparison, with the 3 most recent Coldplay and Alicia Keys albums, I have loved fewer and fewer tracks.  I'm not criticizing Coldplay and Alicia Keys . . . . . . it's just that U2 has exceeded my expectations.  I'm just amazed that U2 still writes such lovely music . . . . . . with meaningful lyrics.  Well . . . . . at least that's how I feel about:
-  their 3 tracks from 2017
Songs Of Innocence . . . . . except for The Miracle (Of Joey Ramone)
Invisible
Ordinary Love

Discography & Releases / Best Thing - New Remixes?
« Last post by bluedater on October 25, 2017, 02:37:56 PM »
On Youtube user "The Last Of The Rock Stars" posted two new Best Thing remixes named

- Experience Mix (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AmN0ulu2p2E)
- Change of Heart Mix (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-vAFE8O7AdA)

Does anybody know if those are fanmade remixes or official ones?

Btw, does anybody know who is behind "The Last of The Rock Stars". He shares some pretty rare stuff like some edits of what Phil Juanou shared on Vimeo (https://vimeo.com/user12243198) and an HD version of the Milano concert which I can't believe is legit (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F5H1RA5WQhc&t=756s)
