Now Reznor is speaking out about the album release, which angered many who found themselves unable to delete it, in an interview with Billboard's Joe Levy. As an artist, when I make a piece of music, I'd like you to know it's out there. So I can see the incentive behind what they wanted to do. I was at the Apple event and we were hanging out after they did it. There's an immense sense of pride toward the album he just spent several years making. Bono's pride notwithstanding, Apple had to create a webpage to show users how to delete the album. Apple reportedly paid U2 $100 million to distribute "Songs of Innocence."
