More artists have songs leaked online

 article about More artists have songs leaked online

UK band Franz Ferdinand are one in the latest string of bands to have new tracks leaked onto the Internet.

Recent victims have included Eminem and U2, resulting in the shift of album release dates and the notion that downloading harms sales.

However, it has been suggested by numerous music industry experts that downloading of music is finally being realised as a marketing tool with schemes such as i-Tunes.

It has been suggested that artists or record label leak new songs online to make sure the artists name is in the media and on the publics mind at the time of release.

Franz Ferdinand are currently in New York working on their new album, which is due out later this year.
