Album Release Dates To Shift To Friday’s In July


You may recall the plans to globalize record releases to Friday’s. Well that plan will now reportedly come into effect beginning July 10th, according to Music Week. Traditionally album’s released in North America have been issued on Tuesday’s. The initiative seeks to curb piracy and customer frustration where album’s were released in other territories before their own. It also aims to offer a window of sales where customers are generally more available to purchase items (aka the weekend.)
