U2, Jay-Z, Coldplay and R.E.M. are among the bands contributing music to (RED)WIRE, a new download service aligned with Bono's (PRODUCT)RED campaign, which raises money for the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. For $5 a month, members will get a weekly, DRM-free delivery of an exclusive song from a major artist, a tune from a lesser-known artist, and a music video or other content. The service goes live at redwire.com in December. According to Coldplay's Chris Martin, Bono's involvement ensures there will be a steady stream of material from top acts: "There's certain people, where, whatever they ask for, you give it."
