“Son of a Plumber” leaked

UTRECHT – This afternoon, the songs from the new album “Son Of A Plumber” appeared on the the Kazaa p2p file sharing network. However, they all contain sections of silence like the first online MP3s of “C’mon” and “Jo-Anna Says” did. The files can be found in a wide range of different qualities (from 54 to 320 Kbit/s), and even in ogg-format.

  TDR suspects this is an attempt from EMI or another institution trying to prevent the songs being easily available for download. If a “normal” version of the album would be put on the Kazaa network (or similar), it would be practically impossible to find it. A brilliant move in that case.
