Pink Floyd’s New EMI Deal Allows For Release Of MP3 Singles
The infamous band and record label finally getting along?
[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Pink Floyd[/lastfm] have reached an agreement with their record label EMI to release back catalogue singles. The band’s remaining members – Roger Waters, David Gilmour and Nick Mason – had fought the release of individual tracks for 10 months before reaching this agreement.
They argued that doing so would go against a clause in their contract which required EMI to “preserve the artistic integrity” of their music. The band won a legal battle to keep the music unreleased last month.
No details of the terms of the agreement or the band’s reasons for changing their opinion on the MP3 issue have yet been released.
EMI label head Roger Faxon issued a statement on the new deal, saying: “Pink Floyd are one of the most important and influential bands of all time. We’re looking forward to continuing to help the band reach new and existing fans through their incredible body of work.”
