And Now, A Totally Unsubstantiated U2 Rumour That Will Probably Annoy a Lot of People

U2 and Apple thought they were doing a nice thing when they made the Songs of Innocence album automatically free to iTunes users. It turns out that not everyone was pleased with the gesture.

Now there’s a story floating about the Interwebs–totally unsubstantiated, of course–that U2 might release a single called “Tightrope” at Apple’s Word Wide Developer Conference next week. Think they’d do that after what happened last time?

This isn’t that far-fetched, actually. Apple is rumoured to be ready to introduce a new look for Apple Music next week and given that Apple was part of the launch of the whole thing…

    The article and thing that wrote is quite possibly retarded or intellectually challenged or is under 25 and has an iPhone surgically attached to its hand , today’s world has become embarrassing when u you use your phones Internet to type in u2 to see how they re doing and then this thing comes up , think it’s time to lay low on the Internet so I don’t have to come across social media retardation on u2 like they tried to do the last time .!

  4. John says:

    Can’t wait! U2 rocks!

  5. Jonathan Clarke says:

    I found the backlash to this hilarious. It went to show that people will look for anything to moan about. here we have the biggest band in the world, giving out a FREE album. Whether you like U2 or not, it was free. You don’t complain when you get a free sample of something in the post, so why complain about free music? Because the album makes your iTunes look untidy? Oh boohoo. Pathetic people.
