The Fly- U2 (1991)


An individual, limited edition, example of vinyl record silhouette art made from a genuine, original, 45rpm, 7” single featuring the 1987 song, The Fly by Irish rock band U2. Released on the Island record label, this vinyl single has been reworked into a silhouette of a bluebottle Fly.

The Fly was written by U2 and was taken from their album, Achtung Baby. The Fly introduced a more abrasive sounding U2, as the song featured danceable hip-hop beats, industrial textures, distorted vocals, and an elaborate guitar solo. Lead vocalist Bono described the song’s subject as that of a phone call from someone in Hell who enjoys being there and telling the person on the other end of the line what he has learned.
