U2 Share Virtual Reality Music Video
Published Oct 26, 2015There's no denying that U2 frontman Bono has a lifelong affinity for giant sunglasses. For the band's latest music video, you'll need the most giant sunglasses of them all — a virtual reality headset.
Revisiting their much-maligned Songs of Innocence LP, the band have shared an immersive VR video tied to their "Song for Someone" single. This isn't the first video for the track, though it's certainly the band's first VR clip.
Working with director Chris Milk and app company Vrse, the video allows you to hang out in a room while U2 serenades you. The song is for someone, alright, and that someone is you.
If you happen to be one of those futuristic tech geeks who already owns a virtuality headset, you can peep the vid by downloading the Vrse app here.
Otherwise, fans were able to view the video in London yesterday (October 25), when U2 cruised around the city in "The Experience Bus." The painted double decker was set up with Oculus Rift headsets, allowing people to sit down and experience the clip themselves.
Thanks to Stereogum for the tip.
