Here’s a brainwave I had while out for a run tonight (along with listening to Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers) :
- My debut album of 10 songs will be ready for release this summer
- Some of the songs are nearly ready now, I’m itching to get them out
- In fact, the first couple are fine, let’s get them out now…
- How about releasing them piece by piece for download…? Then together on physical CD when they’re all done?
- Back when I used to buy singles & albums, I got annoyed that you effectively paid twice for the same songs… so:
- For each download you buy, you get the equivalent cash reduction from the physical album?
Meantime, five separate 2-track downloads will be available along the way as songs are ready… they’ll cost a pound (£1) for 2-tracks… bargain… then when the CD is out you’ll get a pound off for each download you already bought… and if you bought all five, hey you can actually get the CD for free*!!
So begins the maiden voyage of Tattie Records, wish us luck!! 🙂
OH, and I’ll be playing some solo shows live soon too: watch this space…
Spread the word…
