Apple's UK Music Store is offering a new single of the week, an extended version of the new U2 iPod ad and more to UK music fans this week.

The U2 video features the iTunes-exclusive new 'Vertigo' single, which shot to the top ten on its release on the service this month. The video features the familiar coloured backgrounds Mac users are familiar with, along with a series of moving images of the band in silhouette.

This week's free single download comes from Fat Freddy's Drop. The band (described as "a purveyor of freaky nu Pacific soul train") is called 'Hope', the title track of this act's forthcoming debut album, 'Hope For a Generation'.

The seven piece New Zealand band mix reggae rhythms with jazz and funk. Notes with this release describe the band as famed for their spontaneous, improvised live sets.
