The mega successful band Counting Crows has partnered with BitTorrent to release a selection of tracks from their latest album for free. The Counting Crows package includes 4 MP3 tracks from the ‘Underwater Sunshine’ album, plus album art and liner notes.

It’s great to see a group of musicians releasing their material free and legal in this manner, and with the blessing of their recording label. Lead singer Adam Duritz is quoted as saying:

I don’t know why everybody’s not doing it, torrents are a great way for musicians to get their music out to a wider audience. The big challenge for bands these days is not sales but obscurity. Nobody’s got a boombox and nobody’s listening to radio. A pipeline is still a pipeline… it’s a conduit to the entire world for free.

It’s certainly a refreshingly alternative attitude to what has been largely emanating from within the entertainment industry of late and one which, in my opinion, is steeped in common sense.
