The updated release will also appear n their 30th-anniversary edition of The Joshua Tree, features new vocals from frontman Bono.

The song’s concept explores the breakdown of a marriage in the context of miners during the British miners’ strike of 1984-85, originally inspired by Bono’s reading of Red Hill: A Mining Community by Tony Parker.
