Watching soccer, before the leak
Right now, Brendan Canning is running around his house with a large bucket, trying to catch all the leaks of his new album. Figuratively!
Unlike others, Canning believes the early, unauthorized release of his album can damage his record sales game. So he of Broken Social Scene tried to limit the damage from leaky unmastered tapes with the following message on Facebook today:
Fixing the leak... (get the new album today!)
Today at 11:05am
It has come to my attention that an unmastered version of my album has been leaked through the internet. With the retail release being six weeks away, I've decided to correct the situation by releasing the album digitally myself, because I can. So this is for all you early birds who just couldn't wait for July 22nd. But you know, it won't be like going to your favourite record shop and getting a copy in your hot little hands, or sitting in your basement downloading it to your iTouch phone while playing Grand Theft Auto, it merely corrects the situation that is...a messed up version of my record floating around on the internet, and this is not how I wanted my record to drop. Believe me, this is not a minor situation. We're talking recall here folks...With all of this in mind, please note: 'Something for all of us...' will be available at all fine retail and digital outlets in North America July 22nd with some additonal artwork inside and slightly later for the rest of the world.
Thank you all, please enjoy.
