The American rock band Counting Crows is preparing to share a music bundle from the band’s newest album with the 150 million BitTorrent’s users.
The pack includes four tracks from the album entitled Underwater Sunshine – Untitled (Love Song), Like Teenage Gravity, Hospital, and Meet On The Ledge. In addition, the bundle includes Adam Duritz’s (lead singer) liner notes, along with high-resolution album artwork.
The band chose their release date to coincide with the upcoming North American tour – The Outlaw Roadshow.
“These are our new radio stations,” says Duritz.
“Nobody’s carrying a boombox on their shoulder waiting for you to tell them what they can listen to anymore. But everyone has an iPod in their pocket and a choice. Everyone. So we’re going to give 150 million people some songs they can fit in their pocket and then let them choose for themselves. Listen once, twice, a thousand times, or not at all. It’s up to you.”
“Counting Crows is an enduring musical phenomenon, and a perfect example of a band embracing cutting-edge technology and networks for promotion and distribution,” said Matt Mason – executive director of marketing at BitTorrent.
“Our unique BitTorrent bundle option offers creators of all stripes the flexibility to distribute multimedia experiences directly to their fans at scale. Our commitment is to create powerful technology to connect cutting edge artists with new fans, enhance concert attendance and drive revenue.”
