Close

A U2 ballad titled "Love Is Bigger Than Anything In Its Way" received a synth-laced, danceable treatment courtesy of multi-instrumentalist Beck.

This is the second time that the American singer-songwriter reimagined a song from the popular rock band. Back in April, Beck also remixed the track "Lights of Home" which was released on a 12-inch picture disc for Record Store Day.

Both tracks are from U2's latest album, Songs of Experience.

The 47-year-old also joined the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers last year as part of the 30th-anniversary tour for their fifth studio album, The Joshua Tree.

Beck Remixes U2 Love Ballad

For his remix of "Love Is Bigger Than Anything In Its Way," Beck sped up the tempo, injecting a lot more energy to the track. He also used keyboards and percussion and added synth for a refreshing take on the empowering, optimistic anthem.

A music video for the original version of "Love Is Bigger Than Anything In Its Way" was released on April 27. It featured footage of regular people in different places, dancing and having fun.

In an interview, Bono said that the message behind the song is the belief that love is bigger and greater than any challenges that people might encounter in their lives.

"I think everybody substitutes their own obstacles for [what] gets in the way," the singer-songwriter stated. "You know, what gets in the way of your realizing your full potential? What gets in the way of a community realizing its full potential? What gets in the way of the whole world realizing it's full potential, or whatever it is. Love is bigger than it."

 

U2 also recently performed the track at the Third Man Records in Nashville.
