Wilco's New Album Leaks on the Internet, Again



For seemingly a routine for the band, Wilco's seventh album, "Sky Blue Sky" (2007) leaks on the Internet three months before its release date.

For the third time, Wilco's new album leaks on the Internet prior its release date. "Sky Blue Sky" is intended to be released officially on May 15, yet its download sales can be accessed almost three months earlier.

This is not the first time for Wilco as the band's previous two albums had experienced the same thing. "Yankee Hotel Foxtrot" (2002) was out on the Internet before its planned release date and so did "A Ghost is Born" (2004). Responding to this Wilco's frontman Jeff Tweedy is both disappointed and proud at the same time. "There's probably some good argument to be made that (the latest online leak) will prevent a few people from buying the record," he said in a statement. "But there's also the idea that I believe is true for us, which is, it's people listening to our music."

Claiming that the ultimate goal for the band is for people to hear their music, not by how the listeners access their music, Jeff believes that the band's fans will eventually appreciate their work by buying the album even if they have downloaded it.

The only thing concerning the band members about this leak is the quality produced from the downloaded version. "We were prepared for it to leak as soon as the first advance CD went out. That's just part and parcel of the deal. As with previous records, our plan was and is to give people another way to hear the record besides the download, since these often sound like crap and are a pain in the ass for people who don't have a lot of time or are not super tech-savvy."

Wilco is an American rock band from Chicago, Illinois. In 2005, the band's album "A Ghost is Born" won the Grammy Award for "Best Alternative Album " and "Best Recording Package".
