Submission + - Music industry upset at new album giveaway (bbc.co.uk)

Pete (big-pete) writes: "The BBC has announced that the latest album by Prince is to be distributed free with a British tabloid (the Mail on Sunday). This has been announced weeks before the album is officially release on the 24th July.

We can enhance their business. They are being incredibly insular and need to move their business on'."
