Related: Looking at iTunes charts now ... did "Now" chart higher anywhere last night (see it at 39 now)?

I saw it get as high as 35 on the overall charts. The pre-order of the album made it to #7 on the overall album charts, which suggests they were selling quite a few full pre-orders and perhaps less one-off singles.

Uh, if you can just go ahead and listen to the song on YouTube, why does it matter? What's the benefit of waiting for an arbitrary release time?

Or is this thread 2deep4me?

Considering that the single doesn't officially get released in the UK until the end of February, I agree with having the bands stream the song a day or two early before official release.

People are lazy and too susceptible to group think. So, the best ideas (ones that fans can come up with in minutes on AP) fall by the wayside. Then you get issues like this with release dates, and other stuff like Beyonce and the marching band lip-syncing at the presidential inauguration.

This should just encourage bands (even the big ones) to explore direct-to-fan modes of selling their music. Bandcamp doesn't take as big of a cut as iTunes. Paramore could have put the single up on Bandcamp and linked everyone there - the most interested fans will be the first to listen, and be the first to buy it, and you make a little more money per sale. Then have it available in every other outlet the day after, for the lazier / less interested folks.
Bandcamp report to soundscan?

I'm assuming that's one big reason major bands don't.

Then I'm even more confused why they don't do it.
