U2 New Album 2014 'Songs of Innocence' Free For All iTunes Users to Download Now
U2 has worked closely with Apple for years and even performed at their big Apple event today (Sept 9) where the tech giant unveiled the new iPhone 6 and iWatch.
The world famous rock band had some other big news as well. They are releasing a new album titled Songs of Innocence that features 11 tracks. They also announced that they are giving the album away for free to all iTunes users plus anyone who signs up for iTunes in the next 5 weeks.
"From the very beginning U2 have always wanted our music to reach as many people as possible, the clue is in our name I suppose-so today is kind of mind-blowing to us. The most personal album we've written could be shared with half a billion people... by hitting send. If only songwriting was that easy," lead singer Bono said in a statement.
He continued, "It's exciting and humbling to think that people who don't know U2 or listen to rock music for that matter might check us out. Working with Apple is always a blast. They only want to do things that haven't been done before-that's a thrill to be part of."
U2 is considered by many to be the biggest rock band in the world, rivaling with the Rolling Stones. The Irish rock band formed in 1976 in Dublin and have sold millions of albums including eight No. 1 singles including "With or Without You," "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For," "Pride (In the Name of Love)," "Beautiful Day," and "Elevation".
