U2 Frontman Praised Apple and Spotify

U2 Frontman Praised Apple and Spotify

Bono has praised two companies for their efforts to compensate artists for downloads and streams of their music. However, the U2 frontman added that songwriters still get “a poor deal” nowadays.


The U2’s controversial iTunes giveaway of its new album annoyed some people, but Bono had warm words for Apple, even despite being criticized for the partnership with the tech giant. Bono pointed out that Apple agreed to pay the music label for the album and then gifted it to all the people who still believe music is worth paying for.

Although neither side of the partnership has revealed how much Apple paid for the Songs of Innocence, the media reports mentioned a figure of $100m, including the value of marketing campaigns featuring the music in question.

Aside from Apple, the U2’s frontman also praised Spotify, which has fielded criticism from some musicians, including Taylor Swift, over its payments to music creators. Bono called musicians to be pleased with new ways to promote live performances, but at the same time reminded that Cole Porter didn’t play live shows and pointed out that artists were getting a poor deal right in our digital era.

Bono praised paid services like streaming music service Spotify for their efforts to slowly turn people who are used to getting their music for free into paying as little as $10 per month for a subscription model. In respond, the critics claimed that those payments don’t add up to replacement for income from physical or digital sales.

It should be noted that this is not the first time U2 has praised Spotify. For example, at the Web Summit conference a couple months ago, Bono also suggested that artists should be targeting music labels with their ire rather than streaming services, which are giving up 70% of all their revenues to copyright holders.

magengar avatarOld man Bono sez """songwriters still get “a poor deal” nowadays."""
But he was laughin his rich butt to the bank when Apple released U2's new single
for FREE on the new iPod that came out recently.
Which, by the way, not many people were happy about getting a free song
they never asked for.
As a consumer, just because I buy a new gadget it doesn't give the korporation
any rights to stuff 'extra goodies' in my shopping bag without my permission.
Hey Bono, take this song and Shove It!

No avatarThe bottom line is that bands now have to perform more live gigs which is what music is all about. The days when artists could make millions without leaving the recording studio are long gone.

No avatarI am amazed anybody really cares what U2's frontman has to say about anything!. Bono(head)s opinion has always been and sadly still is seriously overrated...
