We all have the new U2 album, but Enda Kenny now has it on vinyl…

Bono said they gave the album away for free as they wanted to make sure the world heard their songs. Now Enda will too.

THE WHOLE WORLD got a copy of the new U2 album, for free, so why not the Taoiseach?

That must have been Bono’s thought process, when he presented Enda Kenny with the new U2 album, Songs of Innocence, at the IDA jobs announcement today in Dublin. 

iTunes versus vinyl 

While the rest of us woke up to the new album in our iTunes for free (to the anger of some) Kenny got a vinyl addition, with cover artwork and all… 

Perhaps Kenny doesn’t have an iPod, or perhaps he has a record player in his office, either way, he seems pretty chuffed with his gift.
