If you were one of the 500 million iTunes users upset to find a U2 album in your library last week, there’s good news.
Apple has launched a support website that allows users to permanently remove U2’s Songs of Innocence less than a week after the “gift” was given to iTunes users.
The site includes a disclaimer that warns the album will no longer be available to re-download as a previous purchase. The album remains free for users to download until October 13.

Robert Plant releasing a solo LP and planning World Tour!
Released by his new label, Nonesuch, on September 9th, Lullaby and . . . The Ceaseless Roar is the ex-Led Zeppelin singer’s first studio effort with the Sensational Space Shifters, his Afro-psychedelic-blues touring band of the past two years. The album is also a return home. Plant, 66, recorded it in his native England after a few years of living and working in America, mostly singing folk and blues covers on Raising Sand, his 2007 hit with Alison Krauss, and 2010′s Band of Joy.
There is a profound, reflective grip to Lullaby and . . . The Ceaseless Roar (named after a line in one song, “A Stolen Kiss”). In the overcast Celtic-folk flair of “Embrace Another Fall,” Plant underscores his lifelong affection for Wales – where he vacationed as a child and later, in a remote cottage, wrote Zeppelin songs with guitarist Jimmy Page – by incorporating part of an old Welsh ballad, “The Lark’s Elegy,” sung in the original tongue by guest vocalist Julie Murphy. She says Plant told her “Embrace Another Fall” was “about coming back” – specifically, “to the drizzle, a particular type of rain in Britain. He said he’d been in the desert, these hot places, and he was returning after a long journey.”

Flashback: Springsteen went Reggae
After the success of Born in the U.S.A. ‘The Boss’ kept a low profile, just playing bars in his native New Jersey. On July 29th 1987, the lucky few catching the reggae act Jah Love at the Key Largo club witnessed Bruce jam out to a reggae rendition of “Born in the U.S.A.” and “My Hometown.” Not just that night but the next night as well… and again the following night he joined Marshall Crenshaw for a few songs at the Stone Pony. None of these reggae inspired renditions made it out for the public until now… thanks to YouTube you can check out the many sides to Bruce Springsteen by clicking here.
