U218 Singles is a greatest hits album by the Irish rock band U2, released in November 2006. In most markets, the album contains 18 songs. The first 16 tracks are 16 of their most successful and popular singles. The 17th track is a cover version, in collaboration with Green Day, of The Skids' "The Saints Are Coming" to benefit Hurricane Katrina charities. The 18th and closing track is a new song called, "Window in the Skies".
U2's first two greatest-hits albums neatly divided themselves by decade, with the first covering the '80s and the second summing up the '90s. Their third hits comp, 2006's U218 Singles, is at once more ambitious and more concise, offering an overview of their first 26 years on a single disc comprised of 18 tracks – and since two of those are new songs, that leaves just 16 songs to tell their whole story. No, out of all their albums the one that dominates U218 Singles is All That You Can't Leave Behind, their 2000 comeback from the depths of the misguided Pop, and one of two records that they've released since their last hits compilation, The Best of 1990-2000.
U218 Singles' released in 2006, was the 'definitive best of', the first single disc collection to span the band's career from Boy (1980) to How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb (2004). At the same time, U218 Videos was released, a DVD featuring music videos from throughout U2's career. Featuring sixteen singles from the more than forty then released by the band, the album also included two new songs both recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London in September 2006 and produced by Rick Rubin.
