Cassadee Pope Says Hold Off On EP

Posted by - 09:57 AM on 05/18/12
Cassadee Pope's EP is on iTunes ... but don't buy it yet.
From FacebookDear everyone! I need to make sure you all know about this price confusion on iTunes BEFORE you decide to buy the EP on May 22nd. I'm distributing my EP through Tunecore, which has been extremely helpful. The only problem I have run into is the price of it. I uploaded a digital booklet with lyrics, track listing, credits, etc. Tunecore has an automatic price jump when you upload a digital booklet. They raise it to $9.99. Of course, that's way too high for a 4 song EP. Unfortunately, I have to wait a few days AFTER my EP goes live in iTunes until Tunecore can lower the price to $5.99. So if you can, please wait til I give you the go ahead to buy the EP. I'd hate for you to spend more money on it than you should. Sorry for the inconvenience. It's just little ole me doing everything so please bear with me! And tell as many people as you can about this. Muah!

Gotta say it's pretty admirable that somebody would go out of their way to tell their fans not to buy an EP because of the price. I can't really remember seeing anything like this happen either.

$5.99 is still a little much for a 4 song, digital EP.

Hot... But yeah, 6$ for a 4-track is kinda ridiculous in it's own right... $4 woman... Get it right.

Yeah she's pricing it pretty high either way. Kind of makes the sentiment behind this move slightly less admirable.

Tunecore has a base price, so she really can't sell it lower than that.

She could do Bandcamp instead which I think would be a much better idea for more bands to use anyway.

5.99 really isn't that much people. Most songs on itunes are 1.25 and not .99, its not 2009 anymore. Anyways its cool that she is giving her fans a heads up.

I'll listen to it but doubt I'm gonna pay either way. In my mind I'm thinking it won't be as good as Hey Monday

Don't care about the EP, but it's a legit issue. Had the same problem on a Tunecore release w/ one of the bands I work with. Tunecore priced it higher than the cost of the individual tracks. Quite frustrating.
