Apologizes for download

15 Oct, 2014

Bono apologizes for Songs of Innocence being added to iPhone users music libraries without their permission. In a question and answer session on Facebook, Bono responds to a user who calls the automatic download “rude”.

Oops, I’m sorry about that. I had this beautiful idea and we got carried away with ourselves. Artists are prone to that kind of thing. Drop of megalomania, touch of generosity, dash of self-promotion, and deep fear that these songs that we poured our life into over the last few years mightn’t be heard. There’s a lot of noise out there. I guess we got a little noisy ourselves to get through it.
