U2 steal show at Superbowl with launch of new single

Veteran rockers U2 chose America's biggest sporting event of the year to launch their new single. "Invisible" was played during the Superbowl on Sunday night and launched on iTunes afterwards, with some of the profits going towards Bono's RED charity. Meanwhile, Bombay Bicyle Club chat to us about their electro crossover album.

We also check out at the new generation of Cuban hip hop artists. Since travel between the US and Cuba has been facilitated, Miami has become the go-to city for Latin beats.

Finally, the maestro of the Spaghetti Western comes to Paris: Ennio Morricone is bringing his Oscar-winning soundtracks and classical arrangements to stages across Europe.
