"A Tear in the Open"

Tom Holkenborg, also known as Junkie XL, remixed the track "UR", which appeared on Tiësto's second studio album in 2004, entitled Just Be.[1] The song originally features Matt Hales from Aqualung who wrote and sang the lyrics in the track and was later featured in Tiësto's In Search of Sunrise 4: Latin America compilation. The B-Side from "UR" is "A Tear in the Open", which was remixed by Leama & Moor and was later included along the remix of "UR" in Just Be: Remixed which features a variety of remixes from tracks of the album, the remix album was officially released in 2006 after the remixes were compiled.[2] The title of the 12" vinyl can be also read and found as "UR a Tear in the Open" as a simple sentence. The album cover for the single was expected as an alternate cover of the album Just Be, the album itself had various covers, but some were later used on singles; Such is the case of this vinyl.
