Working on a
BitTorrent AND a “Dream”….
By Fred Mills
You might recall how back in September of 2007 Bruce
Springsteen’s album Magic was leaked
in its entirety to the web well in advance of its official Oct. 2 release date.
And as hardcore Boss fans were learning last week, the forthcoming Springsteen
album Working On A Dream has also hit
the Internet prior to the Jan. 27 street date.
It’s all over BitTorrent sites and other assorted download
and peer-to-peer portals, in varying degrees of quality, so happy hunting,
campers! Meanwhile, you can watch the official promo
video for “My Lucky Day,” below.
And for those of you out there who balk at the ethical
ramifications of obtaining music off the web before the artist or label wants
it to be in your hands, you can go to NPR Music starting at 11:59 TONIGHT: that’s
when the album will be streamed – legitimately – during the week leading up to
the Jan. 27 release. Go to: www.npr.org/music
