Tim Cook called U2 on stage and the band is jumping on stage now to perform a new song entitled “The Miracle” from its brand-new album Songs of Innocence.
After performing, Bono joked that the band has made “several albums” in the last few years but hadn’t made one that it felt was worth releasing.
Now U2 is using Apple’s event to officially announce Songs of Innocence — and the band is releasing it today, exclusively on iTunes, for free.
If you have an iTunes Store account, it’ll show up today in 119 countries, and it’ll be exclusive to iTunes and Beats Music through October 13th. Anyone who signs up to the iTunes Store in the next five weeks will receive a copy, as well.
It’s available now and you can download your copy today.
