U2 issued their new album, “Songs Of Innocence”, for free on Tuesday to more than a half a billion iTunes customers.

To download the album, simply go to the Music app on your iOS device, or to your iTunes music library on your Mac or PC, and find “Songs of Innocence” under the artist or album tab. The new album is in iCloud; just tap the track listing to start listening or tap the cloud icon to download.

“Songs Of Innocence” was recorded in Dublin, London, New York and Los Angeles and is produced by Danger Mouse, along with Paul Epworth, Ryan Tedder, Declan Gaffney and Flood.

On October 13th, the physical release of “Songs of Innocence” comes with a 24-page booklet. A deluxe, gatefold double album, contains an acoustic session of songs from the album and four additional tracks.
