After too many years of different New Releases Days, in different countries (some new releases dropped on Monday, some Tuesdays, etc), there will now be a global, uniform day called New Music Fridays. Uniformity, is only one reason, the other, of course, is about money and the fact that most folks still get paid on Friday.
From the official press release:
For music fans across the world, Fridays are set to become the day for newly-released music.
The 10th of July 2015 will see the introduction of ‘New Music Fridays’, an aligned global release day for new music. The move, implemented by labels, retailers and artists internationally, means that fans in many countries will no longer have to wait for days to get access to newly-released tracks and albums.
Up until now, music has been released on different days of the week in various countries – from Mondays in markets such as France and the UK, through Tuesdays in the US and Canada and to Fridays in markets such as Australia and Germany. That will change on 10th July when new music will be released on Fridays at 00:01 local time around the world.
