You can download “The Rake’s Song”:http://links.emi.com/9j7u7q9kq2ol7o from “The Decemberists”:http://decemberists.com/ new album due out March 24. You can watch the video (and see his face with too much white makeup) for Morrissey’s new single “I’m Throwing My Arms Around Paris” from the album due out February 16. And you can listen to U2’s new single, “Get On Your Boots” (sounds a little like Achtung Baby) from their new album due out March 3.

If the albums are done, why do I have to wait to buy them? Years ago it took time to manufacture the plastic discs, but not anymore. Why the artificial delay to start accepting money?!?
