so, you might’ve noticed there were no new albums released yesterday. or maybe you didn’t. but here i am to tell you, there were no new albums released yesterday.
why not? album release day has been moved to friday. starting last friday, july 10th, albums will now be released on fridays in the majority of the world. the international federation of phonographic industry made the call citing piracy, social media, and generating excitement as the main reasons for the decision.
i don’t think i’m a fan of this decision so far…i like new music coming out on tuesday. it perks up the middle of my drab week. it gets me through to the weekend. movies come out on friday! do i go see a movie or listen to this album i’ve been waiting for all week long? does it really matter with the internet? how is this really going to stop piracy? ugh, i hate change. seriously though, what am i supposed to do now to get me through the week? new music tuesday has been new music tuesday all of my life and i used it to break up the monotony of the school and later work week. beyonce and drake certainly shook things up and made me happy with their surprise! friday albums, but i don’t want to wait until the end of the week for everyone, especially considering i most likely won’t get around to listening to these albums until after the weekend is over anyway. let’s be real, i’m so behind on listening to new albums anyway, this just makes it that much worse.
you can continue to look toward my twitter for micro music reviews, and if i feel an album is life changing and need to wax poetic about it, then check me out here.
ps. go cop that new hilary duff and thank me later.
