Bono announced at a press conference for the U2 documentary From the Sky Down at the Toronto International Film Festival, that Depeche Mode are among the artists on the forthcoming tribute album honoring the 20th anniversary of U2’s Achtung Baby.

Other artists contributing to the covers album commissioned by Q Magazine include, Jack White, Patti Smith and Damian Rice. Depeche Mode, as posted a couple days ago, cover ‘So Cruel’.

Bono says: “Jack White does ‘Love Is Blindness’, Depeche Mode do ‘So Cruel’, Patti Smith did ‘Until the End of the World’, Damian Rice does ‘One’. It just goes on. And it’s strange, because when I hear the album, when U2 do it, all I hear is what’s wrong with it. But when I heard all these artists doing it, I thought, ‘It’s really good’.”
