The Charlatans are to release their next album for free through the Xfm website, writes Brand Republic. The album should be ready in early 2008, though in the interim the band are releasing their new single “You Cross My Path” through the site on 22nd October. The Charlatans are now backed by Alan McGee who now believes that CD sales are incidental. He said: “The band will get paid by more people coming to gigs, buying merchandise, publishing and synch fees. I believe it’s the future business model.”
Prince also gave his last album away for free through the Mail on Sunday last July prior to his 21 night residency in London.
