"Boy", a 1980 record by U2 that received mild interest at that time will be re-packaged for sale this May.
U2's very first album "Boy" will be re-packaged by Island Records in accordance to the series of the band's albums reissues. The record that was originally released in 1980 and failed to chart, will be put in shelves on May 20.
The remastered version will be accompanied by a bonus CD and followed with a back catalog according to Gigwise.com. 'Boy' is a Steve Lillywhite-produced album that spawned a moderately successful single titled "I Will Follow" which is still included in the band's live tour setlists until today.
The boy on the cover of the original version is Peter Rowen who is now an accomplished photographer. For its U.S. release, the cover was changed to a distorted image of the band for fear of pedophilia.
