"Clouds Across The Moon 07" is a remixed version of the 1985 single of the same name. The vocals were re-recorded by vocalist Emma Charles and the single was released by Shocking Music in July 2007. Hewson states that the single was remixed and released in response to "the phenomenal demand by fans and DJs, for a modern mix of the 1985 'classic'". As well as new vocals, the new version has a more jazz-funk feel than the original, but still retains the original synthesizer and drum machine.
"Clouds Across The Moon" was covered by Norwegian electronica duo Frost, and featured on their debut album "Bedsit Theories" in 1998. The album was produced with the assistance of Röyksopp. The album did well in the Norwegian charts and the single had airtime on MTV in the summer of 1998.
