9eee42cf-4520-45fa-957e-13e9b41573a8

As tickets go on sale today to the general public for U2’s iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE Tour 2015, the band has unveiled a bold new artistic initiative in the form of Films of Innocence: A visionary collection of 11 films by the world’s most vital urban visual artists, each inspired by one of the 11 tracks on U2’s Songs of Innocence album.

From 4pm GMT / 11am ET, the same day that general on sales open for U2’s return to indoor arenas for 22 pairs of shows in 19 cities, the U2-pioneered Films of Innocence project is celebrating the visceral power of urban art with 24-hour exclusive premieres across the following 11 platforms:

Stereogum – “The Miracle (Of Joey Ramone)” by Oliver Jeffers
Complex – “Every Breaking Wave” by Robin Rhode
The Nerdist – “California (There Is No End To Love)” – D*Face
NPR – “Song For Someone” by Mode 2
Dezeen – “Iris (Hold Me Close)” by Chloe Early
Pitchfork – “Volcano” by Ganzeer
Nowness – “Raised by Wolves” by Vhils
Dazed Digital – “Cedarwood Road” by Maser
Rolling Stone – “Sleep Like A Baby” by ROA
Paper Magazine – “This Is Where You Can Find Me Now” by DALeast
Juxtapoz – “The Troubles” by Todd James

Following the 24-hour premieres, the Films Of Innocence collection will be available for purchase via iTunes and Amazon. U2.com subscribers will receive an exclusive bonus in the form of Conor Harington’s visual interpretation of the Songs Of Innocence bonus track “Crystal Ballroom.”

With the political murals of Northern Ireland as a reference point, U2 chose the artists and gave them complete creative freedom to create personal responses to U2’s music. The result is an exhilarating display of diversity in approach, style and commentary. Powerful and cognizant, Films of Innocence takes these artists and their works from the streets to the screen, as they scale the globe, play with time, and weave between heightened reality and animated dreamscapes. The result is an essential visual counterpoint to the album.
