Barenaked Ladies Are Me: 9.12.06

Barenaked Ladies Are Me is the title of the new album by one of my all-time favoritest bands, and it comes out on September 12.

And they're doing some really cool things with its release. There will be multiple ways to purchase the music, and right now, they're offering multitrack downloads of the first single, "Easy." Some of them are free. They encourage fans to submit their own mixes, the best ones of which will be released for charity.

Now THAT'S cool. And interesting. Because there's no offering of the complete song for download. If you want to hear it all together, you gotta be creative. Dick move, or creating a special treat for their tech-savvy fans? You make the call. The way I see it, they didn't have to release anything at all, and the four main tracks essential for a complete song are free off of MySpace. Maybe I'll play with this over the weekend.

In any case, check out Steven Page's blog post on BNLBlog.com for all the details.


BTW, I just said the title of the new album out loud. Cute. :)
