When Apple released their new products, they made a one of a kind deal with U2 to release Songs of Innocence iTunes giveaway. Both Apple and U2, both thought the deal was extraordinary and looked forward to releasing the album to all Apple consumers. However, some people weren’t so keen on randomly finding U2 on their iTunes.

U2 front man Bono now knows that some people didn’t actually want the album. So, he just used a fan Q&A on Facebook to offer an apology. He’s sorry that U2 got “carried away” with its idea, and claims that the band was worried that years of work “might’nt be heard” if it had a typical launch.

Everyone kind of understood where Bono was coming from. After all, the deal reported scored the band nearly $100 million. However, on the bright side, this will probably never happen with any artist ever again.
