What is a leaked album?
Music leaks - currently being made available well before the albums actual retail release.
This started in the early 2000s as soon as networks, music files & piracy were grouped together and have become an effective way to distribute albums.
It's generally viewed as a loss for all the players involved in an album leak. No matter whether you're an artist, a record label, or perhaps a retailer - you never be interested in an album leak days or even weeks upfront.
If you are a torrent user and a scene group, then sharing the album earlier is bound to bring you mad credit!
Irrespective of whether songs are purposely leaked or not, the sheer proven fact that its possible the leak leads to a bit of a media firestorm and it might sometimes leads to promotion to the label. Most likely not a bad thing...
The internet is actually a or the source for advance albums however leaks come from many different places. Workers within the music industry or marketers working in a store or radio DJs, they are all sources every once in awhile. Let’s not forget music streaming , for example Beats Music can be converted to an MP3 and shared around the web.
