Bloc Party Tracks for Download

Published: 2007-06-22
V2, the record label of British indie rockers Bloc Party, has inked a deal with music download website we7.com, to offer tracks by the band, among others, for free download sometime in the near future.

There is a catch though: each downloaded track will have a short advertisement pinned onto the beginning of the song that will be customized to the demographics of the downloader. That way, those artists who are making their music available will still be given some financial credit through royalties. The possibility to remove the ads at a later date may also become available, though the technicalities of when and how are not yet known.

Other artists who will potentially be contributing to this deal are the Cold War Kids, Stereophonics, and The Rakes.
