Sign ‘O’ The Times

God knows why Prince chose the Mail to give away his new album for free. “Good on him” said my newsagent as I bought the last copy. Prince rocks. “He knows how to play the music industry” I think, throwing the paper in the bin.

  1. I think this is a great move by the little fella, ‘The Artist Formerly Available in Record Stores’.

    We all know he can’t stand the music industry making money from his talent, and this is a big ‘fuck you’ to them all. I read that Sony have dumped him from their world wide distribution deal because of it.

    Prince will probably make just as much money, in the long run, as he would have done the regular industry distribution way, not that he needs it. Plus he will get his music out there to some of the fans, and much cheaper for them too.

    The only thing I don’t get is why the Daily Mail?
