U2 Releases Free Album 'Songs of Innocence' on iTunes!

U2 played a big role in Apple’s major news conference today – the band announced the surprises release of their new album Songs of Innocence, which they are giving away for free to every iTunes customer!

“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. “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.”

Songs of Innocence features 11 new songs and is being called the band’s most personal work to date. All current iTunes account holders can download the album now for free, as well as anyone who signs up for an account in the next five weeks.
