#140: Roundtable – The Biggest Album launch in History?

U2 and Apple Album releaseIn this edition of the remarkably entertaining and educational DIY Musician Podcast, The Bolt has a baby, Kevin launches a fan funding campaign (and gains a few grey hairs in the process) and the Podcasters discuss the surprise album release by U2. U2 partnered with Apple to give all iTunes users free access to their newest album. Apple and U2 are calling this the largest record release of all time. But not everybody is happy about the way Apple went about it.

In the news: CD Baby launches CD Baby Free! Now you can sell music on CDBaby.com without signup fees. More info on CD Baby Free here. Soundcloud is getting in the advertising game and select artists may reap the benefits. But will Soundclouds changes benefit indie musicians? Also . . . streaming music subscribers are growing in leaps and bounds.

Tune in for all this goodness and more!
