U2 debuts new video for song The Miracle (Of Joey Ramone) for their upcoming album Songs of Innocence, directed by Bono. The song has received much controversy due to it automatically being uploaded to user iTunes accounts without prior consent. Bono has issued a public apology
regarding the issue:
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.
