U2 has announced its own radio channel U2X RADIO.
The band has made the announcement live on stage in Tokyo.
The partnership with Sirius XM is expected to launch next year and will feature interviews, live recordings and other U2 content.
The channel, which will be available only to SiriusXM subscribers and Pandora listeners, will launch in 2020 with the band themselves taking to the airwaves.
Bono said: “Generally when I open my mouth people prefer if I’m singing, but on U2X RADIO, maybe they’ll forgive me the odd interruption.”
Adam Clayton said: “I’m not entirely sure what this is but what it isn’t is an opportunity to hear some bass solos… U2 24/7. Welcome to the last 43 years of my life.”
Larry Mullen said: “It all sounds exhausting to me but if people really want to listen to us for 24 hours a day, this is the way to do it.”
The Edge added: “So I get to sit around having a laugh with my musician friends and playing our favorite music. As I always say, I have the best job in the world.”
