I didn't know the sci fi mix existed until this thread. I will force sci fi mix on non-U2 fans. It's the most palatable, because it blunts the annoyingness of Bono's voice (you know that's how non-fans view his voice).

Gross, don't like it. Poppy, ssuuuuuuppperrr overproduced crap. Will never listen to again.
Had to quote you as it may be be the first time I actually had the same thought about anything U2 does...I really have no need to hear that again. That said, not a fan of EDM or digital scratching as I call it ;) to begin with so there is that...

The Kygo mix is the official Australian single release.

It's going to confuse a lot of people thinking our famous tennis brat Nick Kyrgios is now a DJ collaborating with U2.

Maybe Kansas City football fans from the 70's can help them through spelling pitfalls.

For some reason, it sounds like they're having more fun on this version, or at least Bono is.  The chorus lifts off from the verse a lot easier here, and the key change isn't so jarring - I think the sweep effect helps.  I was dreading this version, but I have to say I really dig it.  I'm excited for what's on the rest of the album.

Great interview clip with Kygo. It makes for a better anthem than pop single. I assume they added Edge's vocal bridge post-Kygo. I'd ultimately prefer to hear a hybrid of the single and kygo version. His has tge space and progression that the single lacks, plus the voice chop. Since 2000, the guys have been trying the "four guys in a room" (and then Edge on a laptop for the next year)...the single has nice elements, but it would benefit from a hybrid.

Reminds me of last August when our hopes were up for an imminent release.  And when he did it at the festival.  Was there a different lyric on that one

"When the world is ours and every door smells of fresh paint"?

Or were my ears bad?

I kinda liked that.  Kygo mix is good for a club.  Single Mix still the best?

Listening to an iTunes download on Apple earbuds, which most people do, and... where's the bass? Maybe they're going for a light summer breeze with this mix, but the album version has more oomph! and driving bass. For a club mix, it's pretty light.

I love both versions of this single equally. I prefer the vocals chops on the Kygo version and love the bridge and Edge part on the original.

Yeah, what did happen to that part?
Anyway, I have been searching for the wopphebewopphephebe forever and I finally found it! Not sure whether I like the single version more though.

I like it.  Not as much as EBTTRT Perfecto mix (still listening to that 20+ years on).  But Bono's vocal sounds softer on Kygo.  Was there a vocal retake for the band version?
This is making me feel all summery.

Might be from the mix or how the track was processed/compressed
