No AC/DC on iTunes
When next month the new AC/DC album 'Black Ice' is going to sell, Apples iTunes store will be ignored by the band. In an attempt to pretend their music to be sold as single songs AC/DC concentrates on selling CDs.
"We don't create singles, we create albums", told axeman Angus Young the british 'Telegraph'. "Therefor will our new album not be available through Apple's iTunes store." AC/DC' latest album after a few years is called 'Black Ice' and will be in stores on Oct. 20th.
"Most people would just buy two or three songs of the complete album," said Young, which doesn't compete against their musical intentions. "We think, all songs on our albums belong together."
Before AC/DC Kid Rock prohibited the selling of his album 'Rock'n'Roll Jesus' through iTunes. As did singer Estelle. Kid Rock did well and so might AC/DC do - for Estelle the decision turned out to be a desaster. All sales went down immediately.
