Indie-rock quartet, Bombay Bicycle Club, have said that Apple are being “invasive” for automatically putting U2’s new album on all their subscribers’ iTunes account.
‘Songs Of Innocence’ was place into the library 500 million accounts on iTunes Tuesday (September 9).
The album automatically being placed has raised questions about iTunes holders’ privacy, and in a recent conversation with NME, Bombay Bicycle Club guitarist Jamie MacColl said: “I thought the move was quite invasive. A lot of people are up in arms because they don’t like U2. I don’t have an opinion on the band itself, but I do think the method is a little bit in your face.”
