U2 and Apple planned the gesture for maximum publicity - a concert by the Irish megastars at the tech giant's latest product launch, with the surprise that their new album had just been released for free to the world's half-billion iTune customers.

As physical copies of the album, Songs of Innocence, go on sale on Monday, the band that earned global critical acclaim 3 decades ago has faced a backlash with some accusing U2 of turning music into spam.

The September 9th free release will still pay off handsomely for the already-wealthy rockers, with several reports saying that Apple has committed 100 million US dollars to distribute the album as part of its promotion campaign for the iPhone 6.
