Friday Becomes International Day For Newly Released Music
NEW ORLEANS – Skully'z Recordz, 907 Bourbon St., wants to let music fans know the release date for new music has moved from Tuesday to Friday each week.
Last Friday, July 10, 2015, was the launch of "New Music Fridays," an aligned global release day for new music. The move, implemented by labels, retailers and artists internationally, means fans in many countries will no longer have to wait for days to get access to newly-released tracks and albums.
Up until now, music has been released on different days of the week in various countries – Mondays in markets such as France and the U.K., Tuesdays in the U.S. and Canada and Fridays in markets such as Australia and Germany.
That changed on Friday, July 10, when new music was released on Friday around the world.
The move will mean fans can now get new music on the same day worldwide rather than having to wait for their own national release day.
It puts an end to fans being unable to access music in their own country when it is legally available elsewhere, and the frustration that can cause.
