I’m Going To Buy The Mail On Sunday

I never thought I’d say those words, but the mighty Prince has forced me into it:

Prince is launching his new Planet Earth album as a free giveaway with a national Sunday newspaper in a move that has drawn widespread condemnation from music retailers.

The 10-track CD will be available free with an “imminent” edition of the newspaper. Planet Earth will then go on sale on July 24.

However it’s being distributed, I’m sort of faintly excited about the record. The new single, Guitar is decent-ish, in that it has wonderfully silly lyrics, and reminds me of Girls & Boys a bit.

You can listen to it by clicking the ‘play’ button below, or—more free stuff!—download it from 02.

  1. Interesting. I’m going to see him in London in August and they’re giving out free copies of the album then but I wonder why bother if I can get it for free (or the price of a paper) a month before.
