’The Joshua Tree’ Turns 25: U2 & Other Songs Inspired By The Desert

Saturday 10 March 2012, by Corinne/Dead pour U2 France

All the versions of this article:

It was twenty-five years ago today that U2 released their pivotal album, ’The Joshua Tree’. And what an album it is, from the anthem ’Where The Streets Have No Name’ to the subtle ’Running To Stand Still’. The record is arguably where U2 refined their sound, and it includes songs that have remained staples of their live set list ever since.

With over 25 million copies sold, it’s also one of the best-selling records of all time. For the album art, Anton Corbijn, one of U2’s favourite photographers, joined the band on a trek into the Mojave Desert to shoot the Dublin boys in a lonely setting that captured the feeling of a band on a spiritual journey.
