Marking the 40th anniversary of U2‘s seminal album October, the rock legends have announced the launch of the biggest-ever Artist Takeover on Pandora‘s U2 Radio station.
U2’s Artist Takeover on Pandora is an exclusive listening experience where members of the iconic group take fans on a personal journey through the making of their first three albums – Boy (1980), October (1981), and War (1983). The band members share intimate personal stories, previously unknown details, and the music that inspired them along the way.
It marks the first time an artist has created an ongoing series of self-curated Modes on Pandora. Users can choose from three selectable “modes” on the Radio station – each devoted to one of these three early albums – where the group shares personal insights and influences behind each record in their own words. Additional album Modes are expected to be rolled out on Pandora‘s U2 Radio station in the coming months.
“Pandora has given us an opportunity to tell U2’s story in a completely new way, weaving the music of our heroes together with our own using songs, memories, and inspirations,” said U2 guitarist The Edge. “Music is the most powerful storytelling medium, and Modes has created an incredible new way to share the sounds and experiences that made us who we are as artists.”
