Music Industry Unites for Global Release Friday
Currently, release days are different from country to country, with music being released in the UK on Mondays.
Effective this summer, all albums and singles will be released at 00:01 local time on Fridays.
The IFPI, the organisation that represents the recording industry all over the world, suggested the change after talks with record companies, retailers and artists. Benefits of a standard worldwide release include less risk of piracy inbetween different release dates and an opportunity for artists to promote their music more effectively.
IFPI CEO Frances Moore says that the global release day is about celebrating new music. "By creating a single day for new releases across the world, it's an opportunity to reawaken the excitment and anticipation of new music everywhere."
