U2 Denies Teaming Up With Apple to Release New Album on iPhone 6


U2


A rep has denied rumors suggesting that the band will perform a new single at a launching event next week and that their anticipated new album will be pre-loaded onto the new iPhone.

Recently, U2 was rumored to have partnered with Apple to release their new album on the iPhone 6. According to some reports, the highly-anticipated LP would be pre-loaded onto the new phone and the Bono-fronted band would perform a new single during a launching event in Cupertino on Tuesday, September 9.

However, a representative for the Irish group has denied the news. "They are not releasing their album on the iPhone, and they are not performing at the iPhone launch," the rep told the Independent.

Rumors of U2 teaming up with Apple first surfaced earlier this month after an eBay employee Stephen Browne spotted some people on the Samuel Beckett Bridge in Dublin, Ireland filming what he thought would be a music video for the band.

He took a snap from the set and said on Twitter, "Looks like @U2 new album maybe preloaded on to iPhone6. The focus of the 'video' on the bridge last week was a phone." It's unclear what phone the clip is focusing on, but MacRumors then reported that the music video shoot was actually an iPhone commercial.

U2 has a longtime relationship with Apple. That relationship got stronger after Apple acquired Beats which was co-founded by Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine. The latter produced two of the band's albums.
