celebration decides to give away all their music for free
Baltimore's Celebration have decided to cut out the middle man (4AD, in their case) and release all of their music for free. In the band's words:
We as Celebration, have felt the continual growth of web culture's need for barrier-free exchange. We also feel that the traditional methods of releasing music have put too much distance between us...Our plan and experiment is to post new songs monthly, as we create and record them. Under the creative commons attribution non-commercial share alike license, all of our new music will be free to download on our new website. When we have enough music for an album, we will release it on vinyl for those who want to have something to hold. As artists we can only stand for our music, our art, our creation. So here it is--laid bare.Read their entire manifesto and download two new songs, including "I Will Not Fall," here.
