Today U2 released its new album Songs Of Innocence as a free digital download exclusively through iTunes. The news was announced as part of Apple's iPhone 6 launch. Watch how the grand announcement went down:



From Apple's press statement:

"The collaboration between Apple and U2 began 10 years ago. We have partnered on TV commercials, the first special edition iPod, and (PRODUCT)RED. And today, we’re bringing you U2’s latest album in a way no one else can. It’s available to iTunes Store customers exclusively through October 13.

Songs of Innocence has its roots in the band’s early and lifelong influences, including the Ramones, Bob Dylan, and The Clash, as well as their formative years in Dublin and their transformative pilgrimage to California. It’s a collection of songwriting and music made possible only by shared time and life experiences.

At Apple, music has always been a big part of who we are and what we do. This is the biggest album release in music history and one more way we’re moving music forward."

Bono released his own statement about Songs Of Innocence, calling the new collection of songs "a very, very personal album" and revealed the record was finished just last week. He also hinted at another U2 album (perhaps the scrapped original version) in his statement:

"We’re collaborating with Apple on some cool stuff over the next couple of years, innovations that will transform the way music is listened to and viewed. We’ll keep you posted. If you like Songs of Innocence, stay with us for Songs of Experience. It should be ready soon enough… although I know I’ve said that before…"
