U2 Work With Apple To Create ‘Un-Piratable’ Format
Busy week for U2 eh? Having already pissed off a sizable portion of the planet with a wholesale iTunes assault (and is it just me who finds the idea of Bono leaving a load of un asked for 'extremely personal' songs on your laptop a bit creepy? It's the kinda thing a weird ex might do before they go full stalker), Bono has now been back in talks with Apple over the possibility of making a format that he claims can't be pirated.
Speaking to TIME magazine, Bono said that he was looking at “an audiovisual interactive format for music that can’t be pirated and will bring back album artwork in the most powerful way, where you can play with the lyrics and get behind the songs when you’re sitting on the subway with your iPad or on these big flat screens. You can see photography like you’ve never seen it before.”
He went on to add that the format is “about 18 months away,” which could coincide with the release of a companion album to Songs of Innocence titled Songs of Experience.
In recent years Bono has selflessly combated piracy by releasing albums that no one would want to listen to. No doubt once he's sorted out this new thingimy, the classics will start rolling back in.
