U2 - “California (There Is No End To Love)”
Songs Of Innocence (2014) -
Buy (Free on iTunes OR album drops October 14)
Had I been well 6 days ago, I would have posted about U2’s new album right away. Either way, by now you’ve probably heard they released new album, and they released it in a new and innovative way.
They released the album for free on iTunes. While I don’t use iTunes and I think it’s a shitty product, if this whole deal turns out to be a great move, which it looks like it is, this means musicians in the future can do away with the hopes of selling records, and just make a lump sum deal and give their album away “for free” on iTunes or any other platform.
Regardless, WE HAVE A NEW FUCKING U2 ALBUM—but more importantly—IT ACTUALLY DOESN’T SUCK.
No really. For the first time in a long time, I’m actually getting sick of an album because I’m listening to it too much. Like WTF!?
I’m all over this record, and “California” is my second favorite track. For some reason, I love the way Bono sings both “cry like a baby” lines in the song. I dunno. I DUNNO.
What I do know is, we have a new U2 album, so it’s gotten me really fucking wet.
